AN ACT MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE TO BE USED FOR SALARY REIMBURSEMENT FOR AN EMPLOYEE.

WHEREAS, on March 31, 1973, the position of Veterinarian II held by Dr. Russell Laslocky in the Department of Agriculture was abolished; and

WHEREAS, Dr. Laslocky appealed to the Personnel Commission of the State of Delaware the abolition of his position and subsequent layoff; and

WHEREAS, the layoff of Dr. Laslocky was determined by the State Personnel Commission of the State of Delaware to be subject to merit system rules 14.0200 and 14.0240; and

WHEREAS, the State Personnel Commission, in its opinion and order of April 23, 1974, ordered that Dr. Laslocky be "reinstated to his position as Veterinarian II with back pay from March 31, 1973, such pay to be reduced by the amount of earnings which Dr. Laslocky has made during that time"; and

WHEREAS, the Attorney General's Office which represented the Department of Agriculture at said hearing has recommended that the Commission's decision not be appealed; and

WHEREAS, the Department of Agriculture has calculated that it requires a supplemental appropriation of $21,890.78 to satisfy the Commission's order for the period of April 1, 1973 through May 15, 1974;

NOW, THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. The sum of $21,890.78 is appropriated to the Department of Agriculture which money shall be used to satisfy any and all claims Dr. Russell Laslocky has or may have against the period April 1, 1973 through May 15, 1974, for which he has not yet received payment.

Section 2. This Act is a supplementary appropriation act and 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 in Section 1, and any funds appropriated but unexpended by June 30, 1974, shall thereupon revert to the General Fund.

Approved June 28, 1974.
