Delaware General Assembly


WHEREAS, The immediate cash payment of the Adjusted Service Certificates to the veterans of the World War will increase tremendously the purchasing power of millions of the consuming public, distributed uniformly throughout the nation; and will provide relief for the holders thereof, who are in dire need and distress because of the present unfortunate economic conditions; and will lighten the burden which towns, cities, counties and states are required to carry for relief; and

WHEREAS, The payment of said certificates will not create any additional debt, but will discharge and retire an acknowledged interest obligation of the National Government; now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met:

3. That since the Government of the United States is now definitely committed to the policy of spending additional sums of money for the purpose of hastening recovery from the present economic crisis; the General Assembly of the State of Delaware recommends the immediate cash payment at face value of the Adjusted Service Certificates, with cancellation of interest accrued and refund of interest paid, as a most effective means to that end.

4. That the Secretary of the Senate and the Chief Clerk of the House of Representatives are hereby directed to forward copies of the concurrent resolution to the Congressional Delegation of the State of Delaware, by: Hon. Daniel 0. Hastings, Hon. John G. Townsend, Jr., and Hon. J. George Stewart.

Became effective without Governor's approval.
