CHAPTER 141

AN ACT APPROPRIATING CERTAIN MONEYS TO THE DELAWARE STATE FAIR, INC., FOR PRIZES.

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

Section 1. The sum of $20,000 is appropriated to the "Delaware State Fair, Inc.", a corporation of the State of Delaware. Said appropriation shall be used and expended only for prizes for meritorious achievements in agriculture, stock and poultry raising, and in works of manual training and the domestic arts awarded at the annual fair to be held in July of 1965. Such prizes shall be awarded by an Award Committee, which shall be appointed within ten days after this Act becomes effective, one member of which shall be named by the Governor from the personnel of the State Board of Agriculture, and the remaining members shall be named by the Delaware State Fair, Inc. Said corporation shall on or before the first day of December next, file with the State Auditor a sworn itemized statement showing the name of each person to whom a prize has been awarded, for what each prize was awarded and the amount of each prize, and showing also the grand total of said prizes, which statement shall be sworn to and signed before a Notary Public, by both the President and Treasurer of said corporation ; when said statement shall have been audited by the State Auditor and found to be true and correct and according to law he shall direct the State Treasurer to pay to said corporation the total sum shown to be due for prizes by said itemized list; provided, however, said sum shall not exceed $20,000 and should said sum be less than the amount appropriated by this Act, then the unused balance shall remain in and revent to the State Treasury and shall in no case be paid to said corporation.

Section 2. This Act is a supplementary appropriation for the fiscal year commencing July 1, 1965, and the moneys appropriated shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of moneys in the General Fund of the State of Delaware not otherwise appropriated.

Approved June 16, 1965.
