CHAPTER 314

FORMERLY SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION NO. 26

DECLARING A PROHIBITION AGAINST THE EXPENDITURE OF ANY STATE FUNDS FOR OUT-OF-STATE TRAVEL PURPOSES.

WHEREAS, the Governor has announced that the State is experiencing a shortage in expected revenues; and

WHEREAS, each department, division and agency of the State is searching for methods by which expenditures might be curtailed; and

WHEREAS, in many instances persons have been scheduled to attend conferences, seminars and other group meetings which are a source of professional information and improvement of occupational skills; and

WHEREAS, although such conferences are of benefit to the State, it has become necessary to prohibit out-of-state travel expenditures for the remainder of this fiscal year.

NOW THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware with the approval of the Governor as attested by his signature appended hereto, that excepting travel for purposes of urgent State business, the expenditure of State money for out-of-state travel and accommodations is hereby prohibited for the remainder of this fiscal year. All persons desiring the use of State funds for travel and accommodations purposes must first obtain the approval of the Governor.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that all travel and accommodations requiring the use of State Funds are hereby cancelled, except for those persons actually transit, and all departments, divisions and agencies shall request refunds of money paid in advance.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that on January 15, 1972 and June 30, 1972, the Governor's Office shall issue a memorandum listing those persons who have used State funds for travel, a brief description of each trip taken and the amounts expended, and a copy of the memorandum shall be distributed to every member of the General Assembly.

Approved August 5, 1971.
