The 2016 legislative season has been in session since early January and the COS team in Delaware is making steady progress, gaining crucial support from state legislators. Sen. Dave Lawson filed the Convention of States resolution, SCR 31, at the end of the 2015 legislative session. Senators Bonini and Hocker have also signed on as co-sponsors.
Since the Delaware General Assembly lasts for two sessions, all resolutions are automatically carried over from one session to the next. SCR 31 has been assigned to the Senate Executive Committee and we expect a hearing in that committee soon.
We need your help getting the resolution out of committee so that the full Senate has a chance to vote on SCR 31. To find out how you can help, please contact the Delaware state director.
You can read the text of SCR 31 here or if you haven’t done so already, please sign the petition expressing your support for the COS resolution. The signed petition will automatically be sent to you state legislators.
