Rep. Ruth Briggs King wants to see changes to Delaware’s “Money Bills”

1140

A local representative wants to make sure Delaware does not continue politics as usual. State Representative Ruth Briggs King is sponsoring a bill that would require the state’s operating and capital budgets, as well as the Grants in Aid Bill, be filed at least two days before being acted on by the General Assembly. Collectively known as Delaware’s “Money Bills”, Rep. Briggs-King says currently funding bills sometimes get introduced late at night and voted on minutes later. She says rushing major spending bills through the legislature is not good governance and a disservice to all Delawareans.
