Attorney General Jeff Sessions is testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, as the investigation continues into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Sessions is expected to take questions about his recusal from the Russia investigation, his own meetings with Russian officials, and what if anything he knew about a private Oval Office meeting between President Trump and fired FBI Director James Comey.

The General Assembly started its final month of work for the year with plenty on its plate.

This week alone lawmakers were considering abortion, physician assisted suicide and revising the Coastal Zone Act – just to name a few topics.

But at the end of the week,  it was once again the budget that moved center stage, with another somewhat dramatic development in the effort to address the state’s gaping shortfall.

Political reporter James Dawson returned to the Green this week to offer a recap and analysis.

Former FBI Director James Comey is testifying before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, speaking publicly for the first time since he was fired by President Trump nearly a month ago.

Earlier this week, lawmakers on the budget writing Joint Finance Committee (JFC) set to the work of making cuts that would address the state’s over 380 million dollar short.

But a day after making $30 million worth of cuts of education, the arts and public health Tuesday --- Democratic leaders in both chambers put the breaks on JFC’s work Wednesday.  They told the committee to stop until more work could be done to forge an agreement on plans to raise additional revenues through various tax increases.

Political reporter James Dawson reported this week on this latest act in this year’s ongoing budget drama this and visited The Green to explain what’s going on.

Next week, lawmakers in Dover begin a two-week break for budget mark-up and the Memorial Day weekend.  Before leaving, they stepped up the pace a bit at Legislative Hall.

Gov. Carney’s proposal to dismantle the Delaware Economic Development Office in favor of a public-private partnership was formally unveiled. We also started to see pieces of what appears to be the budget deal Democratic and Republican leaders have been working with the estate and franchise taxes on the agenda this week.  And curtain lifted on something Gov. Carney talked about in his address to the General Assembly in March - a bill to allow more activity in areas protected by the Coastal Zone Act.

Political reporter James Dawson recaps those stories and offers additional perspective.
