The clock is ticking down for this year’s legislative session in Delaware at the end of June.

The lawmakers are facing a $32 million reduction in funding for capital projects as well as non-profits and charities from the forecast at the beginning of the year.

So they will have to decide which capital improvement projects will get state money that range from construction to infrastructure.

Under the Grand-in-Aid legislation they must choose which charities and non-profits will get funding from the Grant-in-Aid bill.

Gov. Jack Markell has proposed $43 million in grants to nonprofit groups and community agencies for the fiscal year starting Monday.
