CHAPTER 521

FORMERLY SENATE BILL

NO. 604

AN ACT TO PROVIDE A SUPPLEMENTARY. APPROPRIATION TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES TO BE USED FOR SALARY REIMBURSEMENT FOR AN EMPLOYEE OF THE DELAWARE HOME AND HOSPITAL AT SMYRNA.

WHEREAS, Mrs. Catherine Lomax was charged with insubordination and suspended without pay for a period of five days in April of 1971; and

WHEREAS, on October 13, 1971 the State Personnel Commission determined that insufficient evidence was presented to prove a case of insubordination and declared that Mrs. Lomax be fully compensated for the five days' suspension; and

WHEREAS, the Office of the Budget has determined that such reimbursement can only be made by means of a supplementary appropriation because such claims revert to Fiscal Year 1971.

NOW, THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. The sum of one-hundred and thirty-three dollars and sixty cents ($133.60) is hereby appropriated to the Department of Health and Social Services, which money shall be paid to Mrs. Catherine Lomax, an employee of Delaware Home and Hospital at Smyrna for salary due her for five days in April, 1971 for which she has not yet received payment.

Section 2. This Act is a supplementary appropriation act and funds hereby appropriated shall be paid from the General Fund of the State Treasury from moneys not otherwise appropriated.

Section 3. The funds herein appropriated shall be expended only in the manner set forth in Section 1, and any funds appropriated but unexpended by June 30, 1972, shall thereupon revert to the General Fund of the State Treasury.

Approved July 12, 1972.
