Such forms shall be provided to the several State agencies on or before June 30, 1971.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution shall not be a substitute for any existing laws or regulations requiring tax clearance by the Division of Revenue of the Department of Finance of all State agency expenditures exceeding $2,000.00.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Department of Finance shall take appropriate action to collect all taxes due and owing the State of Delaware in connection herewith and further provide a list of all persons and corporations found delinquent in tax payments or in non-compliance with any laws or regulations connected herewith, to each member of the Legislature. This list shall be furnished on or before November 30, 1971.
