DOVER, Del. (AP) - A bill giving the General Assembly veto power over privatizing operations at the Port of Wilmington is heading to a House committee.
The bill, which narrowly cleared the Senate last week, was slated for a hearing Wednesday by the House economic development committee.
The legislation, opposed by Gov. Jack Markell's administration, prevents the state-controlled Diamond State Port Corporation from agreeing to privatize or lease the port without approval from both chambers of the Legislature.
