AUTHORIZING STATE TREASURER TO PAY FUNDS TO NEW CASTLE COUNTY LEVY COURT

AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE STATE TREASURER TO PAY CERTAIN FUNDS TO THE LEVY COURT OF NEW CASTLE COUNTY.

WHEREAS, the State Treasurer has received a check from the Corps of Engineers of the United States Army in the amount of $675.37 representing a portion of the income which the United States has derived from leasing certain federal lands along the Delaware and Chesapeake Canal, AND

WHEREAS, under the applicable federal statute (68 Stat. 1266; 33 USCA § 701 c-3) the General Assembly is authorized to use the funds for certain governmental expenses within the county where the leased lands are located, AND

WHEREAS, there appears to be some doubt as to whether the State Treasurer can turn the funds over to the Levy Court of New Castle County without specific legislative authorization ; NOW, THEREFORE

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware (three-fourths of all Members elected thereto concurring therein):

Section 1. The State Treasurer is hereby authorized and instructed to turn over and pay to the Levy Court of New Castle County the $675.37 forwarded to the State of Delaware by the Corps of Engineers of the United States Army in connection with revenues derived from the leasing of land along the Delaware and Chesapeake Canal in New Castle County.
