FORMERLY

HOUSE BILL NO. 16

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 381, VOLUME 59 , LAWS OF DELAWARE, ENTITITLED "AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE EXPENSE OF THE STATE GOVERNMENT FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1975,

AND TO AMEND CERTAIN PERTINENT STATUTORY PROVISIONS", FORMERLY HOUSE BILL NO. 750.

WHEREAS, in February of 1974, the Federal-State Highway Safety Coordinator received an increase in salary due to a promotion approved by the Governor and State Personnel. However, because the approval of the salary increase payable from Federal Funds was authorized prior to the enactment of the fiscal year 1975 Budget Act, it was inadvertently omitted from the Budget Act; consequently, the Budget Act only reflected that amount which he had been receiving from Federal and State Funds prior to the approval of his increase; and

WHEREAS, the United States Department of Transportation approved of Mr. Nedwick's salary increase payable from Federal Funds for fiscal year ending June 30, 1975; and

WHEREAS, during the audit of the Office of Federal-State Highway Safety conducted by the State Auditor of Accounts, it was disclosed that the Federal-State Highway Safety Coordinator, Mr. Walter E. Nedwick, had received salary and wage payments in the amount of $1,175 in excess of the Federal Funds amount reflected in the fiscal year 1975 Budget Act; and

WHEREAS, the amount of funds reflected in said Budget Act resulted in a misunderstanding for which the employee is not responsible; and

WHEREAS, the employee was unaware that his salary increase was not properly reflected in the Budget Act.

NOW, THEREFORE:

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend Section 1 of Chapter 381, Volume 59, Laws of Delaware, by striking the words "All other funds--$8,600).... $8,600" in their entirey as they appear in Sectionl of said Chapter under the caption "(10-06-000) Federal-State Highway Safety Coordinator", and substituting in lieu thereof the following: "All other Funds--$9,775)....$8,600".

Approved May 18, 1977.
