NEWARK, DE--The Caesar Rodney Institute (CRI) announces the release of its 2023 "Delaware Report Card," marking the second year of its review in key areas of governance crucial for a strong and sustainable economy. These key areas include Business Taxes, State Economy, State Government Finance, Education, Environment, Energy, and Healthcare.



The report card was rigorously graded by CRI's team of policy experts, which included Charlie Copeland, David Stevenson, Dr. Christopher Casscells, MD, and Dr. Tanya Hettler, PhD.


CRI Executive Director John Toedtman comments:


"While only one 'A' was given for the 'Environment,' four Fs were unfortunately given to Business Taxes, Education, Energy, and the executive director of the Caesar Rodney Institute, I am deeply concerned. It's clear that there are significant areas of governance in Delaware that need improvement.


The fact that we've given failing grades in these key areas is alarming. These are critical components of a strong and sustainable economy, and we cannot afford to overlook their shortcomings.


Our team of researchers and policy experts have worked to provide an objective evaluation of the state's governance. It is imperative that Delaware's elected officials address these issues."
