AN ACT TO PROVIDE AN EXTENSION OF TIME WITHIN WHICH CERTAIN APPROPRIATED SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION FUNDS ARE TO REVERT TO THE STATE OF DELAWARE AND TO THE DEBT SERVICE ACCOUNT OF A SCHOOL DISTRICT

WHEREAS, by 52 Delaware Laws, Chapter 345, the sum of $740,700.00 was appropriated to the Smyrna Special School District of which $444,420.00 was the State Share and $296,280.00 was the Local Share; and

WHEREAS, by Act of the General Assembly signed into law April 16, 1963, being 54 Delaware Laws, Chapter 16, the State Share of the funds so appropriated was to revert to the State of Delaware and the Local Share to the debt service account of the Smyrna Special School District, one year after pupil occupancy of the newly constructed facilities; and

WHEREAS, the Smyrna Special School District encountered unforeseen obstacles to the completion of their construction program which have unduly delayed the expenditure of the sums appropriated; and

WHEREAS, pupil occupancy of the new construction took place on or about September 1, 1963, although the construction was not accepted from the contractor until on or about January 31, 1964,

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.
