AN ACT APPROPRIATING CERTAIN MONIES TO THE ADJUTANT GENERAL OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE FOR USE IN COMPLETION OF ARMORIES AT DAGSBORO AND SEAFORD NOW UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

WHEREAS, armories in Dagsboro and Seaford are now under construction pursuant to a cost sharing grant of the United States Government; and

WHEREAS, under the policy of the United States Government making grants to states, it is required by the Federal Government that the states first spend the money before the Federal Government will reimburse such a state for the money so expended; and

WHEREAS, the Adjutant General of the State of Delaware does not currently have available sufficient funds to pay the contractors constructing said armories as the work progresses; and

WHEREAS, it is necessary for the Adjutant General of the State of Delaware to temporarily obtain money in order to keep payments current so that the United States Government may reimburse the State of Delaware for such expenditures; NOW, THEREFORE,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

The monies hereby appropriated are to be used by the Adjutant General of the State of Delaware for the completion of armory construction at Dagsboro and Seaford, currently in progress under a cost sharing grant from the United States Government.

Section 2. When funds become available in the hands of the Adjutant General of the State of Delaware, through the reimbursing program by the United States Government, in accordance with the cost sharing grant aforesaid, the sum hereby appropriated shall revert to the General Fund of the State Treasury. In any event, however, the said sum hereby appropriated shall revert to the General Fund of the State Treasury no later than December 30, 1953.
