WHEREAS, a May 6, 1968 directive from the Budget Director to financial officers did notify all State agencies that all purchase orders against fiscal 1968 General Fund appropriations shall be liquidated by September 30, 1968 unless specific approval to the contrary is secured from the Budget Director; and
