AN ACT TO APPROPRIATE FUNDS TO THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1962, FOR PURPOSES OF VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION.

WHEREAS, the appropriation for Vocational Training for 1961-62 was reduced; and

WHEREAS, such reduction will cause a 45% decrease in the adult programs during the 1961-62 school year over last year in the areas of agriculture, homemaking, distributive occupations, technical courses, trade extension, apprenticeship training, practical nurse education, firemen training, custodial training, supervisory and management training, and special class for fisheries; and

WHEREAS, recent demands have increased the need for these adult training programs for the employed as well as retraining opportunities for the unemployed; and

WHEREAS, the State funds are needed to match the federal funds now available for these types of classes; and

WHEREAS, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation has not been able to provide service to all disabled persons requesting such service; and

WHEREAS, funds are needed by the Vocational Rehabilitation Division to finance case services, NOW, THEREFORE,

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

Section 1. There is hereby appropriated to the State Board of Education for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1962, the sum of $20,000 for Vocational Training and the sum of $7,800 for the Vocational Rehabilitation Division.
