STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT REIMBURSEMENT FOR MONEY ADVANCED TO STATE POLICE PENSION BOARD

AN ACT TO REIMBURSE THE STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT FOR MONEY ADVANCED TO THE STATE POLICE PENSION BOARD FOR STATE POLICE PENSIONS.

WHEREAS, due to failure of enactment of a deficiency appropriation bill making an appropriation to the State Police Pension Board at the 1949 session of the Delaware General Assembly, there were insufficient funds available to pay pensions to the retired members of the Delaware State Police Force as provided by law; and

WHEREAS, the Attorney General of the State of Delaware advised the State Highway Department that it was the responsible agency to supply such deficiency out of funds available; and

WHEREAS, the said Department did transfer to the State Police Pension Board the sum of Eighty Thousand Dollars ($80,000) to make possible the payment of State Police Pensions during the biennium ending on the thirtieth day of June, A. D. 1951; and

WHEREAS, the State Highway Department had use for the funds so diverted in order to carry on the various activities of the Department, and desires to be reimbursed for the amount so advanced or diverted by it; NOW, THEREFORE,

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

Section 1. That the sum of Eighty Thousand Dollars ($80,000) is hereby appropriated to the construction account of the State Highway Department, and the State Treasurer is hereby directed to pay all or any part of such sum upon a warrant or warrants approved by the proper officials of the State Highway Department.

Section 2. That this Bill shall be known as a Supplementary Appropriation Bill, and the sum hereby appropriated shall be paid out of any money in the General Fund of the State Treasury not otherwise appropriated.

Approved June 5, 1951.
