CHAPTER 329

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 148, VOLUME 48, DELAWARE LAWS, KNOWN AS THE SCHOOL BUILDING PROGRAM ACT OF 1951 TO AUTHORIZE BETHEL SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 99, A PART OF THE LAUREL SPECIAL SCHOOL DISTRICT AS OF NOVEMBER 5, 1960, TO EXPEND CERTAIN FUNDS RAISED PURSUANT TO SAID ACT.

WHEREAS, the School construction program for Bethel School District No. 99, now a part of the Laurel Special School District, heretofore approved by the State Board of Education pursuant to the School Building Program Act of 1951 has been substantially completed; AND

WHEREAS, the bonds authorized by said Act for said school building program have been sold by both the State of Delaware and Bethel School District No. 99, and the proceeds thereof deposited in the 1951 School Construction Account of Bethel School District No. 99, now a part of the Laurel Special School District; AND

WHEREAS, there remains in said 1951 School Construction Account of Bethel School District No. 99, now a part of the Laurel Special School District, a balance which has not been expended or committed, in the amount of $13,267.58; AND

WHEREAS, there is continued and pressing need for certain construction for public school purposes in the Laurel Special School District, and authority to expend some of the aforesaid balance for additional facilities needed in said District would make it unnecessary for the State and the District to sell additional bonds for such purpose;

NOW THEREFORE,

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

Section 1. Laurel Special School District is hereby authorized to expend an amount not exceeding $13,267.58, the unexpended balance in the 1951 School Construction Account of the Bethel School District No. 99, now a part of the Laurel Special School District, under the School Building Program Act of 1951, being Chapter 148, Volume 48, Delaware Laws (of which 83-1/3 per cent is State Funds and 16-2/3 per cent is District funds), for the purpose of supplementing the funds already provided under Chapter 345, Volume 52, Delaware Laws.

Section 2. The authority hereby granted in this Act shall expire on December 31, 1963.

Approved January 24, 1962.
