CHAPTER 270 - SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION

RELATING TO THE PURCHASE OF FOOD SUPPLIES BY THE SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE FOR FLOOD RELIEF.

WHEREAS, the Secretary of Agriculture of the United States of America has authorized a huge purchase of eggs, beef and pork to be distributed in flood relief, and

WHEREAS, there is at this time in excess of 87,000,000 pounds of poultry in cold storage, being an increase of 33,000,000 pounds over the corresponding period of 1936, and

WHEREAS, it is desirable that such excess shall be disposed of at the earliest date possible so as not to effect the market for live poultry;

Now therefore be it resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:

Section 1. That the Secretary of Agriculture of the United States of America be requested to include in his purchases for flood relief poultry in cold storage, and to distribute the same in flood relief work contemplated by the Department of Agriculture.

Approved February 11, 1937.
