AN ACT APPROPRIATING MONIES FOR DELAYED AND ESSENTIAL REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE TO AND OF CERTAIN STATE INSTITUTIONS, THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE, STATE COLLEGE FOR COLORED STUDENTS, STATE BOARD SCHOOLS, SPECIAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND THE WILMINGTON BOARD OF EDUCATION.

WHEREAS, due to the War Emergency and certain other factors including scarcity of manpower and materials and the resultant high cost of materials it has heretofore been necessary to defer and delay repairs and maintenance to and of many of the buildings used by State institutions, colleges and schools, and

WHEREAS, it is now highly desirable that as soon as practicable such repairs and maintenance be accomplished, and

WHEREAS, the State has accumulated a cash balance over and above its actual operating expenses which said balance was in part created by deferring said repairs and maintenance,

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

Section 1.
