CHAPTER 140 AN ACT RELATING TO THE APPROPRIATION IN CHAPTER 916 OF THE SESSION LAWS OF 1965 WITH RESPECT TO RENOVATION OF THE EDGERTON BUILDING AT DOROTHEA DIX HOSPITAL. WHEREAS, the sum of one hundred and ninety thousand dollars ($190,000.00) was appropriated with respect to Dorothea Dix Hospital by Chapter 916 of the Session Laws of 1965 to renovate the Edgerton Build- ing; and WHEREAS, it was understood that the renovation was for the purpose of patient occupancy; and WHEREAS, the State Department of Mental Health has concluded it would be more advantageous to use such funds to renovate the Edgerton Building to accommodate the central research facilities of said Department rather than for patient occupancy: Now, therefore, The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:
