Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell celebrates the launch of Delaware’s Open Data Portal, an interactive website that provides new access to public information that impacts the lives of Delawareans and their families.
Joined by technology entrepreneurs, open data advocates, members of his cabinet, and others, Governor Markell visited Wilmington co-working space 1313 Innovation Wednesday evening for the unveiling of a new statewide open data portal that streamlines access to public information and enhances government transparency.
Today Governor Markell issued a statement praising a U.S. Supreme Court decision that let stand Delaware’s Elections Disclosure Act.
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.
Following efforts by the Governor and legislators to address the transparency and efficiency of Delaware elections, the Senate today passed House Substitute 1 to House Bill 302—a bill that will create a more unified and efficient structure for conducting elections, while making it easier to report and investigate campaign finance violations.
