Delaware lawmakers deal with spending, redistricting and other issues

Delaware lawmakers have just two more days to finish the state budget for fiscal year 2012 and to officially complete legislative redistricting. 

The House of Representatives Tuesday night approved a bill that merges the House and Senate redistricting plans, which are required every ten years after the US Census.  Lawmakers also are finishing up approval of the state budget, which totals about $3.5-billion for the fiscal year that begins Friday.  Grant-in-aid and the bond bill also face action.  Time permitting, lawmakers will get to other matters as well before the clock strikes midnight Thursday at Legislative Hall in Dover.  CLICK HERE to track bills and the schedule for the House and Senate, and check back for updates on
