General Assembly to allow limited public presence this month
As lawmakers return to the legislative chamber to wrap up this year’s session this month, some members of the public may join them.
The General Assembly meets again on Tuesday – and again welcomes the public on a limited basis for the first time since the start of the pandemic.
Anyone wishing to attend a House or Senate session must register for the opportunity and can reserve seats on the Delaware General Assembly website. There will be separate registration forms for the House and the Senate.
50 seats will be made available to the public each day – 25 in the Chamber gallery and 25 in the Senate gallery. Registration forms will be available from 5 p.m. the day before each session day.
Members of the public are required to provide their full name and email address to reserve a seat, and they will receive a confirmation email.
Only one entry per day is authorized and masks must be worn at all times inside the Legislative Hall. Access to the rest of the building remains limited and the floor of the Chamber and Senate is still closed to the public.
The legislative session will continue to be webcast and committee meetings will take place virtually, with the public not having access to the House chamber on committee days.
Seating will be available in the Senate Chamber every Wednesday that the Senate sits.
