APPROPRIATION

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 47, VOLUME 41, LAWS OF DELAWARE, 1937, ENTITLED "AN ACT APPROPRIATING CERTAIN MONEY FOR THE CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT OF A NEW STATE ARMORY IN THE CITY OF MILFORD."

WHEREAS, numerous changes in the original specifications were made in connection with the construction of a new State Armory in the City of Milford, Delaware, in order to fall within the appropriation allotted by Chapter 47, Volume 41, Laws of Delaware, 1937, as a result of which several major and necessary items were eliminated and,

WHEREAS, the new Armory in its present condition is unable to furnish the proper training, retarding the efficiency of the local Battery in its weekly operation, etc., due to lack of facilities and major conveniences, and,

WHEREAS, all of such items as have been eliminated from the original specifications are essential requirements for the completion and installation of the Armory in Milford, Delaware, and should be accomplished for the proper maintenance and operation of the local Battery, and,

WHEREAS, the citizens of Milford and various organizations of that city consider the matter of utmost importance in order to have the needs of the new armory fulfilled; therefore

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:

Section 1. That Chapter 47 of Volume 41, Laws of Delaware, 1937, be and the same is hereby amended by striking out all of Section 8 thereof and inserting in lieu thereof a new section to be known as Section 8:
