CHAPTER 413

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION

WITH REFERENCE TO THE RETURN OF FUNDS TO THE TREASURER OF THE UNITED STATES ON ACCOUNT OF OVERPAYMENT TO AN EMPLOYEE OF THE BOARD OF GAME AND FISH COMMISSIONERS OF DELAWARE BY THE FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR.

WHEREAS, Walter Tomlinson, an employee of the Board of Game and Fish Commissioners of the State of Delaware received payment for services from the State of Delaware and also from the Fish and Wildlife Service of the United States Department of the Interior for services in connection with a Federal-State special game refuge improvement project, being Delaware Project 2-D; and

WHEREAS, the said services were performed during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1943; and

WHEREAS, the Laws of the State of Delaware do not permit the Board of Game and Fish Commissioners of the State of Delaware to reimburse the Federal Government for said overpayment because of State Laws which prohibit the payment in one fiscal year of any amount due for services or material, performed or furnished, in a different fiscal year; and

WHEREAS, the said overpayment for services in the amount of Three Hundred Seventy-five Dollars and Thirty-six Cents ($375.36) is due and owing and cannot now be paid out of funds available to the Board of Game and Fish Commissioners of Delaware, and legislation by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware is the only method by which the account can be settled; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate of the One Hundred and Fifteenth General Assembly of the State of Delaware, the House of Representatives concurring therein:

urer of the United States in settlement of the transaction herein described, and that the Auditor of Accounts of the State of Delaware be directed to forward check of the State of Delaware to the said Treasurer of the United States upon the passage and approval of this resolution, in full settlement of the account; and

That the funds hereby appropriated shall be considered in the nature of a Supplementary Appropriation Bill, and that the State Treasurer of the State of Delaware be directed to pay the amount hereby appropriated out of any funds in the State Treasury of Delaware not otherwise appropriated.

Approved June 30, 1949
