AS AMENDED BY

SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1

AN ACT MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY APPROPRIATION TO THE OFFICE OF THE PUBLIC DEFENDER TO PAY WAGES PAST DUE TO JAN LAWTON.

WHEREAS, it is the intention of the State Merit System of Personnel Administration to deal fairly and equitably with all State employees; and

WHEREAS, it has now become apparent that through an administrative oversight, Jan Lawton was denied her proper Merit System increases due to a mistake as to her anniversary date; and

Fiscal Year 1973 - 1974
Fiscal Year 1974 - 1975
Fiscal Year 1975 - 1976

$176.00 202.00 435.96

   

TOTAL $813.96 ; and

WHEREAS, Jan Lawton has rendered exceptional service to the State of Delaware and the Office of the Public Defender in her position in the classified service.

NOW, THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. The sum of eight hundred thirteen dollars and ninety-six cents ($813.96) is appropriated to the Office of the Public Defender of the State of Delaware to pay wages due Jan Lawton from past fiscal years.

Section 2. This Act is a supplementary appropriation act and the monies appropriated shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of funds in the General Fund of the State of Delaware not otherwise appropriated.

Section 3. The funds herein appropriated which remain unexpended or unencumbered as of June 30, 1977, shall revert to the General Fund of the State of Delaware.

Approved June 7, 1977.
