Delaware’s struggling casinos would get a $8 million temporary financial bailout under a proposal made to the Legislature’s Capital Budget Committee Monday by Markell administration officials.
The proposal is just part of a recommendation for spending an estimated $50 million in newly available funds, including an estimated $21 million in additional tax revenue for the fiscal year starting July 1 and an estimated $22 million in premiums from a recent bond sale.
The Delaware Economic and Financial Advisory Council met for a final time on Monday afternoon.
Lawmakers have two weeks to pass a new budget before the General Assembly Session ends on June 30.
