CHAPTER 329

FORMERLY

SENATE BILL NO. 278

AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 11 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE COMPENSATION OF THE BOARD OF PAROLE.

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

WHEREAS, members of the Board of Parole have not received a per diem increase since July 22, 1994; and

WHEREAS, Board members’ per diem covers, at minimum, a full day of hearings and one day for per-hearing preparation; and

WHEREAS, because of the increase in intensity of cases and increased participation of victims, as a result of the Victims’ Bill of Rights, hearing days and pre-hearing preparation time have lengthened; and

WHEREAS, the fiscal impact of increasing the per diem compensation received by Board members is not so great as to warrant delaying such an increase any longer;

NOW THEREFORE:

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

Section 1. Amend §4344(a), Title 11 of the Delaware Code, by striking the figure “$110” as it appears in the first sentence thereof, and substituting in lieu thereof the figure “$300”.

Approved July 3, 2004
