CHAPTER 42

FORMERLY

SENATE BILL NO. 3

AN ACT DIRECTING THE BOARD OF PENSION TRUSTEES TO RE-EVALUATE PENSION BENEFITS FOR LAWRENCE THOMPSON, A FORMER BEE INSPECTOR WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE.

WHEREAS, Lawrence Thompson, a former Bee Inspector with the Department of Agriculture for approximately 15 years, was granted a service pension pursuant to Chapter 359, Volume 59, Laws of Delaware; and

WHEREAS, the Board of Pension Trustees authorized a service pension in the amount of $34.55 per month; and

WHEREAS, the nature of the work performed by Mr. Thompson was not only hazardous but required him to be on duty 24 hours a day, thus deserving of better consideration, notwithstanding the fact that his salary was incommensurable with his duties.

NOW, THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. The Board of Pension Trustees is hereby directed to re-evaluate pension benefits for Lawrence Thompson and the Board is further directed to determine that Lawrence Thompson shall receive a minimum of not less than one hundred and fifty dollars per month, commencing on the date on which he was granted his original pension of $34.55.

Approved April 21, 1975.
