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

Section 1. Amend Title 29, Chapter 76, Delaware Code, by adding a new Section 7602 to read as follows:

§ 7602 (a) State agencies including all public schools may cause the flag of this State to be displayed out of doors (weather permitting) on its installation, grounds or campus at each location.

(b) To carry out the purpose of subsection (a) the State Distribution Agency shall purchase and distribute as many flags of this State as necessary to supply each agency and public school with the initial issue, upon certification by the agency or public school head that such purchase is initial and not a replacement.

Section 2. To carry out the purpose of this Act the sum of Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000) is appropriated to the State Distribution Agency for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1969 and ending June 30, 1970. Provided, however, that the funds appropriated by this act shall be used only for the purchasing of flags and not for flag poles, other appurtenances, and installation.

Section 3. This Act is a supplementary appropriation and the money appropriated shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of funds in the General Fund of the State of Delaware not otherwise appropriated. Any funds hereby appropriated which remain unexpended on June 30, 1970, shall revert to the General Fund of the State of Delaware.

Approved May 18, 1970.
