CHAPTER 770

AN ACT PROPOSING THE REPEAL OF ARTICLE XII OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE, RELATING TO PUBLIC HEALTH.

WHEREAS, a cabinet form of government is deemed advisable which shall include only those agencies as the General Assembly shall create or continue by statute; and

WHEREAS, it is deemed inadvisable that the existence and certain features of particular State boards continue to be set forth in the Constitution of the State of Delaware; and

WHEREAS, the State Board of Health is one such agency which should be governed solely by statute rather than partially by the Constitution in Article XII;

NOW, THEREFORE,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware (two-thirds of all the members elected to each House concurring therein):

Section 1. Article XII of the Constitution of the State of Delaware is hereby stricken and repealed in its entirety.
