CHAPTER 353

FORMERLY

SENATE BILL NO. 430

AN ACT TO AMEND CHAPTER 116 OF VOLUME 61, LAWS OF DELAWARE, ENTITLED: "AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE EXPENSE OF THE STATE GOVERNMENT FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1978, AND TO AMEND CERTAIN PERTINENT STATUTORY PROVISIONS", ALSO KNOWN AS HOUSE BILL NO. 300, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE SALARY OF THE STATE LIBRARIAN.

WHEREAS, at the time House Bill No. 300 was written there was no indication that there would be a State Librarian employed; and

WHEREAS, once the Search Committee had determined that one would be hired it was discovered that the salary was totally out of line with other State's Library Agency Directors; and

WHEREAS, upon consulting with the Health, Education, Welfare Officer, Mrs. Beatrice Simmons, additional Library Services and Construction Act funds in the amount of $3,031 were made available to the State for use to supplement the already appropriated funds for the State Librarian's salary; and

WHEREAS, the Delaware State Clearinghouse Committee has determined that although federal funds are available to pay the State Librarian's contracted salary it is improper for these funds to be utilized without having been appropriated in House Bill No. 300.

NOW, THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. Amend Section 1 of Chapter 116, Volume 61, Laws of Delaware by striking line 3 in its entirety as the same appears on Page 53 of said Chapter and inserting in lieu thereof the following:

"(All other Funds $9,819) $10,181"

Section 2. Further amend Section 1 of Chapter 116, Volume 61, Laws of Delaware by recomputing all totals and subtotals to reflect the provisions of Section 1 of this Act.

Approved June 26, 1978.
