CHAPTER 63

FORMERLY SENATE BILL NO. 168

AN ACT TO PROVIDE A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE.

WHEREAS, Title 29, Chapter 55, Delaware Code, entitled "State Employees' Pension Plan", was amended by striking all of said Chapter 55 and substituting in lieu thereof a new Chapter 55; and

WHEREAS, Chapter 55, Subchapter II, Section 5521, established mandatory retirement ages for State employees; and

WHEREAS, the Division of Revenue had thirteen people retire under the provision of Section 5521, thereby entitling them to payment for accrued vacation and sick leave, thus rendering the Division's salary appropriation insufficient to bear this extraordinary expense; and

WHEREAS, the Division of Accounting and the Division of the Treasury required additional personnel as a result of reorganization; and

WHEREAS, the Division of Accounting and the Division of the Treasury experienced an abnormal amount of overtime, thereby depleting the line item for regular salaries at an excessive rate; and

WHEREAS, the Division of the Treasury was assigned the responsibility for the administration of the State Employees' Health Insurance Program, thereby necessitating two additional employees;

NOW, THEREFORE,

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