Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,
Our last week of session is here. June 30th this year falls on a Sunday so there will be no update next week. We passed the budget on Thursday of last week. However, we still need to pass the Bond and Grants-in-Aid bills. And, well, whatever else comes our way in the last four days of session. Never a dull moment.
-I am still hoping that my DUI loophole bill passes the senate. In addition, I am really hoping some other pieces of legislation pass including (but not limited to) a definition of “firearm” bill, the Take-Care Delaware program being piloted in Smyrna School District, and a bill that helps curtail last-minute shenanigans often played with legislation late in June. All four of which I am a prime or co-prime. You can check out all four pieces of legislation here:
-And, as always, part of my job in the minority party (despite not having the party-line votes to push more of the ideas that I think would be what’s best for the state) is to safeguard as much as possible against legislation that I do not think is in the best interest of Delawareans. I do what I can with what “No” votes and amendments I can muster even though we are badly outnumbered. Thank you again to the people of the 11th District for putting their trust in me to be their voice in Dover.
-Have a great 4th of July everyone and happy birthday, America! I will be walking in the Clayton parade. Time to break out the yellow shirts!

It is late June. That means a lot less cooking and a lot more…. well…. not cooking.
-1 packet instant noodles
-whatever fixins’ you have around the house
-1 pack bismuth tablets
-1 very patient wife
Follow the instructions on the packet of instant noodles. Add whatever stuff you have around the house to make it healthier/better. Take the bismuth after. Apologize to your wife for not being able to feed her as normal.
