Section 2. The moneys hereby appropriated shall remain available until the purposes of this Act are fully carried out to the satisfaction of the fire companies mentioned herein, whereupon any unexpended portion shall immediately revert to the General Fund.

Section 3. This is a Supplementary Appropriation Act, and the money hereby appropriated shall be paid out of the General Fund of the State of Delaware.
