147th General Assembly Session Starts Tues.

Jan 07, 2013 -- 4:24am

Lawmakers return to Dover Tuesday for the start of the 147th General Assembly Session.

Now while the first day at Legislative Hall is largely a lot of pomp and circumstance, lawmakers say 2013 promises to be a big year.

Many lawmakers feel the most important item facing Democrats and Republicans is the budget. Gov. Markell is set to give his budget address on January 24.

Other big issues this year will be whether or not to continue to allow slot machines in VFW and American Legion halls across the State. And last week,  Senator Robert Marshall announced he planned to push for an assault weapons ban.
