STATE OF DELAWARE
Whereas, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware has ordered that the General Assembly of the State of Delaware be reapportioned; and
Whereas, the Court has set January 10, 1968 as the deadline for the reapportionment to be accomplished by legislation; and
Whereas, a bill to reapportion the General Assembly has been prepared by the Legislative Council and agreed to by the leaders of the two major political parties of this State; and
Whereas, the Senate of the 124th General Assembly has recessed until February 6, 1968, and the House of Representatives of the 124th General Assembly is now in recess; and
Whereas, it is in the best interest of our State that reapportionment of the General Assembly be accomplished by legislation and not by judicial decree;
Now, therefore, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, pursuant to Article 3, Section 16 of the Constitution of the State of Delaware, do hereby convene the 124th General Assembly into Extraordinary Session on Wednesday, January 10, 1968, at 7:30 p.m., for the purpose of considering a bill reapportioning the General Assembly of the State of Delaware.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this 10th day of January in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-second at 7:00 p.m.
