AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES TO TRANSFER BETWEEN ALL LINES AND DIVISIONS.

WHEREAS, the Department of Health and Social Services has insufficient general fund appropriations in certain divisions; and

WHEREAS, the Department of Health and Social Services' total general fund appropriation is sufficient to cover expenses for the balance of Fiscal Year 1975; and

WHEREAS, the authority to make certain transfers within various lines and divisions would eliminate the need of additional supplemental appropriation.

NOW, THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. The Department of Health and Social Services is hereby authorized, with the approval of the Budget Director, to transfer between all lines and divisions as needed to meet financial requirements for the remainder of Fiscal Year 1975. This authority expires on June 30, 1975.

Section 2. On or before May 1, 1975, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Social Services is hereby directed to submit a written report to each member of the General Assembly indicating what funds were transferred between lines and/or divisions. This report will show the line and division that the funds were taken from, the line and division that the funds were transferred to and the jurisdiction for the transfer of these funds.

Section 3. This bill does not authorize transfer of funds to any line or division which has not previously been authorized by the General Assembly.

Approved April 11, 1975.
