CHAPTER 628

FORMERLY HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

NO. 29

RELATING TO A SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATION TO THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL FOR PUBLIC HEARING EXPENDITURES TO BE INCURRED DURING FISCAL YEAR 1972.

WHEREAS, because of the vast importance of some of the Bills being considered in both the House of Representatives and the Senate there has been a corresponding increase in the interest shown by the general public in the affairs of the General Assembly and an increasing willingness by the public to participate in the legislative process; and

WHEREAS, because of this high public interest and participation there has been a corresponding increase in the number of public hearings on bills, an increase in the time consumed for each hearing, and an increase in the demand for such auxiliary services such as court reporters, recording the hearing, typing and miscellaneous supplies; and

WHEREAS, it is the desire of the General Assembly that the Legislative Council staff and supply for the requirements of each public hearing upon request, and provide the means for storage of the results and records of the public hearings.

NOW, THEREFORE:

BE IT RESOLVED by the House of Representatives of the 126th General Assembly of the State of Delaware, the Senate concurring therein, that the sum of four thousand dollars ($4,000) is hereby appropriated to the Legislative Council out of the General Fund of the State of Delaware to be set aside by Legislative Council and used specifically for services and supplies directly related to public hearings.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that if any funds herein appropriated remain unexpended by June 30, 1972 such funds shall thereupon revert to the General Fund of the State Treasury.

Approved June 20, 1971.
