AS AMENDED BY SENATE AMENDMENT NOS. 1 AND 2

AND HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29, DELAWARE CODE, RELATING TO THE METHOD OF PAYMENT OF STATE OFFICIALS AND EMPLOYEES AND MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION THEREFOR.

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

Section 1. Amend Section 2713, Chapter 27, Title 29, Delaware Code, by striking said section in its entirety and substituting in lieu thereof a new section 2713, as follows:

§ 2713. Method of payment of State officials and employees

The salaries of State officials and employees shall be paid semi-monthly, the first payment shall be made on the fifteenth day of each calendar month by the payment of one-half of the statutory or stipulated monthly salary or one twenty-fourth of the statutory or stipulated annual salary, for the period from the first day of that calendar month to and including the fifteenth day of that calendar month; and the second payment shall be made on the last day of each calendar month by the payment of the remaining one-half of the statutory or stipulated monthly salary or one twenty-fourth of the statutory or stipulated annual salary, for the period from the sixteenth day of such calendar month to the last day of said calendar month.

Section 2. The sum of $5,500,000 is hereby appropriated to the State Treasurer, which funds shall be used to pay State employees for the pay period ending on June 30, 1973.

Section 3. This Act is a supplementary appropriation act and the funds hereby appropriated shall be paid from the General Fund of the State Treasury from moneys not otherwise appropriated.

Section 4. These funds herein appropriated shall be expended only in the manner set forth herein.

Section 5. This Act is a supplementary appropriation act and the funds hereby appropriated shall be paid from the General Fund of the State Treasury from moneys not otherwise appropriated.

Section 6. The funds herein appropriated shall be expended only in the manner set forth herein, and any funds appropriated but unexpended by June 30, 1974, shall thereupon revert to the General Fund of the State Treasury.

The State Treasurer has had the checks prepared to issue to State Employees as soon as the budget for Fiscal Year 1974 is enacted. Those checks are dated July 1, 1973. To insure that State Employees are paid for the pay period ending June 30, 1973, and to avoid the delay and the necessity of rewriting approximately 22,000 checks, those checks shall be issued pursuant to this Act.

Approved June 30, 1973.
