APPROPRIATION

STATE BOARD OF HEALTH

AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION TO THE STATE BOARD OF HEALTH FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING THE PAYMENT OF SALARIES AND WAGES OF EMPLOYEES OVER AND ABOVE THE PRESENT APPROPRIATIONS AVAILABLE TO THE STATE BOARD OF HEALTH AT EMILY P. BISSELL SANATORIUM.

WHEREAS, it has been difficult to anticipate budgetary requirements during the period of construction and expansion at Emily P. Bissell Sanatorium; and

WHEREAS, the care of patients in widely scattered buildings during the new construction and the securing of competent personnel--including new personnel--to take over newly added operations, has necessitated an increase in the total salaries ; and

WHEREAS, the State Board of Health has considered it wise to care for all persons making application for admission to the sanatorium to prevent the spread of tuberculosis among the citizens of the State; and

WHEREAS, economies in budget items other than salaries have resulted in savings of $28,500.00 which cannot be transferred to Salaries and which will be reverted at the end of this fiscal year to the General Fund ; NOW, THEREFORE,

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

Section 1. There is appropriated to the State Board of Health, to be used only for the purposes indicated, the sum of $31,000.

Section 2. The funds hereby appropriated shall be available during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1955 and shall be paid out by the State Treasurer upon proper vouchers presented by the State Board of Health.

Section 3. This Act shall be known as a supplementary and a deficiency appropriation bill and the funds hereby appropriated are to be paid out of the General Fund of the State of Delaware. Any of the funds appropriated herein that are not expended during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1955 will revert to the General Fund of the State.

Approved June 30, 1955.
