Some bills won’t make it to the finish line before lawmakers finish their work on June 30th.

That includes Senate Bill 155, which would make changes to the state’s Freedom of Information Act – changes that raised alarms with open government advocates.

Delaware Public Media's Roman Battaglia talked to its sponsor, State Sen. Kyle Evans Gay (D-Talleyville), about the bill, the backlash and her decision to hit the brakes on it for now.
