AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 351, VOLUME 50, LAWS OF DELAWARE IN REGARD TO AN ACT TO APPROPRIATE FUNDS TO THE DELAWARE COMMISSION FOR THE FEEBLE MINDED FOR THE CARE OF ABNORMAL INFANTS UNTIL SPACE IS AVAILABLE AT THE DELAWARE COLONY, STOCKLEY.

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

Section 1. Chapter 351, Volume 50, Laws of Delaware, is amended by striking out Section 1 thereof and substituting the following Section 1:

Section 1. The sum of $15,000 is appropriated to the State Board of Trustees of the Delaware State Hospital at Farnhurst to pay the costs of the care of infants under six years of age who must be placed in other institutions awaiting admission to the Delaware Colony for the Feeble Minded at Stockley. The funds herein appropriated shall not be used for the care of infants for whom there is space available at the Delaware Colony. The parents or other persons legally responsible for the care of a particular infant will be required to contribute according to their ability to the cost of the care of such infant before any funds herein appropriated are expended for such care. Any funds herein appropriated which are not expended for the purposes listed by June 30, 1958, shall revert to the General Fund.

Approved June 28, 1957.
