HOUSE BILL NO. 667

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 5, TITLE 29, DELAWARE CODE BY PROVIDING FOR THE DESIGNATION OF THE OFFICIAL BUG OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE.

WHEREAS, students in the Milford High School District have found that the State of Delaware has omitted from the Delaware Code the official designation of a State bug; and

WHEREAS, many states have designated an official State bug to accompany their State flower, State flag and State bird; and

WHEREAS, the insect herein designated as the official State bug is emblematic and fitting to accompany Delaware's other official symbols.

NOW, THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. Amend Chapter 5 of Title 29, Delaware Code, by adding thereto a new section to be designated as §509 to read as follows:

§509. State bug

The Lady Bug shall be the official State Bug for the State of Delaware.

Approved April 25, 1974.
