The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued an opinion affirming the constitutionality of the Delaware Elections Disclosure Act, which was proposed and signed by Governor Markell in 2012.
Governor Markell announced that he has vetoed House Bill 50, which would allow for any student to be opted-out of any state or district assessment, while he signed Senate Joint Resolution 2, which aims to eliminate unnecessary, ineffective, or redundant tests required by the state, districts, and individual schools.
Telling lawmakers the country must address the inequities, inefficiencies, and unproductive policies of our criminal justice system, Governor Markell testified before a House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on criminal justice reform.

This morning, Congressman John Carney (D-DE) visited Liberty Court Apartments in Dover to announce new legislation to improve affordable housing options. The Housing Assistance Reform Act would increase housing options for low-income Americans and help housing authorities raise capital for affordable housing projects. The legislation would expand access to the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Moving to Work program from 39 local housing authorities to 60, and eliminate the current unit cap for the Rental Assistance Demonstration program, allowing any eligible housing authority to participate.
