HOUSE BILL NO. 474
AN ACT TO PROVIDE A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION TO ENABLE A TEACHER TO RECEIVE A PORTION OF SALARY PREVIOUSLY EARNED.
WHEREAS, one of the standards upon which the payment of teacher is based is the attaining of the "plus 30" status (a bachelor's degree plus 30 graduate credits); and
WHEREAS, Raymond B. Higgins, a teacher in the Stanton School District, did not receive pay due to him from the State of Delaware for his "plus 30" status; and
WHEREAS, due to inadequate bookkeeping procedures, Mr. Higgins was entitled to "plus 30" compensation for the period of July 1, 1971, through June 30, 1972.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:
Section. 1. The sum of six hundred seventy-seven dollars ($677.00) is hereby appropriated to the Department of Public Instruction, which funds shall be used to compensate Raymond B. Higgins for money which is due and owing to him from the State.
Section 2. 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 3. 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.
Approved January 22, 1974.
