The General Assembly rejects pay raises from Delaware Compensation Commission's report
By Robert Petree

House Joint Resolution 2, would outright reject the commission's report.
As Delaware faces a large budget shortfall, Republican and Democratic leaders from both chambers Wednesday, filed legislation to reject the pay raises included in the Delaware Compensation Commission's salary report.

House Joint Resolution 2, which is sponsored by more than 50 of the 62 legislators in the General Assembly, would outright reject the commission's report.

Under law, the General Assembly must reject the report in its entirety within 30 days or the proposed raises automatically go into effect.

Since the creation of the Compensation Commission in 1984, the report has been rejected twice, in 1993 and 2013.
