APPROPRIATION

INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT BOARD

AN ACT MAKING A DEFICIENCY APPROPRIATION TO THE INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT BOARD FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1955.

WHEREAS, there has been a steadily increasing number of new industrial plants, merchandise marts and large department stores located in the state; and

WHEREAS, the peak employment period has caused a tremendous increase in the number of accident reports to be prepared by the staff of the Industrial Accident Board ; and

WHEREAS, there are a greater number of cases being referred to the Board for hearing, resulting in more work to the already heavy demand the Board is making of its small staff ; and

WHEREAS, the Board has a reputation of long standing for the insistence that all insurance carriers and self-insurers qualified to write workmen's compensation insurance in the State of Delaware meet their obligations promptly, thus requiring the Board to have a competent staff at all times and one which must be willing to cooperate with the large number of adjusters, attorneys and doctors, who at various times call on the Industrial Accident Board for assistance ; NOW, THEREFORE,

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

Section 1. The sum of Thirty-Five Hundred Dollars ($3,500.00) is appropriated to the Industrial Accident Board to meet an anticipated deficiency for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1955.

Section 2. The sum of money herein appropriated may be allocated to any of the various code allocations applicable to the regular budget of the Industrial Accident Board and shall not be confined to any particular one thereof.

Section 3. This is a supplementary and deficiency appropriation and the funds hereby appropriated are to be paid out of the General Fund of the State Treasury not otherwise appropriated. Any of the funds appropriated herein that are not expended during the fiscal year June 30, 1955 will revert to the General Fund of the State.

Approved March 25, 1955.
