    Chapter 2B: Commission on Alcoholism and Promotion of Temperance abolished

      Section: 26:2B-28: Transfer of property, moneys, obligations, and officers and employees under prior law to division; retention of supervisory powers by department

           All books, papers, records, documents, and equipment in the custody of or maintained for the use of the Department of Health pursuant to sections 1 through 5, inclusive, of P.L.1948, c. 453 are hereby transferred to the custody and control of the division created by this act.

All moneys heretofore appropriated for the Department of Health for activities authorized by said sections 1 through 5, inclusive, of P.L.1948, c. 453 and remaining unexpended on the effective date of this act are hereby transferred to, and shall remain immediately available for expenditure by, the division created by this act.

All duly existing contracts, leases, and obligations of the Department of Health entered into pursuant to said sections 1 through 5, inclusive, of P.L.1948, c. 453 shall remain in effect and shall be performed by the division created by this act. This act shall not affect any renewal provisions or option to renew contained in any such lease in existence on the effective date of this act. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, all approvals of plans, projects, and Federal and State financial aid applications heretofore granted shall remain in full force and effect; provided, however, that nothing in this section shall prevent said division from withdrawing such approval if such action is otherwise in accordance with law.

All gifts and special grants made to the Department of Health under sections 1 through 5 of P.L.1948, c. 453 and remaining unexpended on the effective date of this act shall be available for expenditure by the division created by this act in accordance with the conditions of the gift or grant without specific appropriation.

All hospital and clinic facilities established pursuant to section 3 of P.L.1948, c. 453 shall remain subject to the control and supervision of the department.

All officers and employees of the Department of Health engaged in activities authorized by sections 1 through 5, inclusive, of P.L.1948, c. 453 who immediately prior to the effective date of this act hold permanent appointment in positions classified under Title 11 of the Revised Statutes, or have tenure in their positions by reason of law are hereby transferred to the Division of Alcoholism created by this act, every such transfer to be without impairment of civil service status, seniority, retirement, and other rights of the employee, without interruption of service, and without reduction in compensation and salary grade, notwithstanding any change in his title or duties made as a result of such transfer; subject, however, to the provisions of Title 11, and the rules and regulations established thereunder. All such officers and employees who immediately prior to the effective date do not hold permanent appointment in such positions, or do not hold such tenure, are hereby transferred to the Division of Alcoholism created by this act without impairment of seniority, retirement and other rights, without interruption of service, and without reduction in compensation and salary grade. Nothing in this section shall be construed to confer upon an officer or employee any rights not held prior to the transfer or to prohibit any subsequent reduction in compensation or salary grade not prohibited prior to the transfer.
