Thank you to Sam Sachs – State Director – Youth in Government at YMCA of Delaware for sending me Casey’s YIG bill, she wrote this in 2011. YIG is a wonderful program for middle and high school students who are interested in learning more about Delaware’s legislative process. Students takeover Legislative Hall for a weekend and elect a Governor, Speaker, write and debate bills; excellent program.
Casey had listened to me speak about how schools should not have to decide if they want smaller class sizes or unified arts in our elementary schools. She participated in YIG and she wrote a bill to address this issue. She won “Best Senate Bill” for this bill.
