UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION COMMISSION AUTHORIZING PURCHASE OF PROPERTY FOR USE OF COMMISSION

AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE ACQUISITION, PURCHASE, OR ERECTION OF PROPERTY AND/OR BUILDINGS BY THE UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION COMMISSION ON BEHALF OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE WITHOUT ANY OBLIGATION ON BEHALF OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE.

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

Section 1. The Unemployment Compensation Commission is hereby authorized on behalf of the State of Delaware to acquire, purchase, or erect such building or buildings as may be deemed necessary for the proper conduct of the business of the Commission.

Section 2. In the exercise of such power, said Commission is hereby authorized to execute all necessary contracts for the purchase or erection of such building or buildings, payment therefor to be made by the pledge of such funds as may be provided by the United States of America, or any agency thereof, including the Federal Security Agency and the Department of Labor, and all moneys received by the State of Delaware from any other source for the express purpose of meeting such contract payments. Provided, however, prior to the execution by the Commission of any contract or pledge under the provisions of this Section, written approval thereof shall be obtained from the Governor of the State of Delaware and shall provide on the face thereof the following:

"No obligation hereunder shall be or become a charge of the State of Delaware nor shall the same become a lien on or secured by any property, real, personal or mixed, of the State of Delaware or the Unemployment Compensation Commission but all such obligations shall be payable solely from funds provided expressly for such purpose by the United States of America or any agency thereof including the Federal Security Agency and the Department of Labor".

Section 3. Upon final payment by the Commission for such building or buildings as may be hereafter purchased or constructed under the provisions of this Section, title thereto shall be vested in the State of Delaware, provided, however, that the Unemployment Compensation Commission or its successor shall have a right of perpetual use of such property without the payment of any rent to the State of Delaware other than that required for normal maintenance.
