      Section: App.A:9-37: Civilian defense director; subordinate offices

           There is hereby created in the State Department of Defense, the office of civilian defense director. The civilian defense director shall be appointed by the Governor and shall hold office at the will and pleasure of the Governor with or without compensation in the discretion of the Governor. He shall assist the Governor in effectuating the purposes of this act and, to that end, the Governor is empowered to delegate to the said civilian defense director any of the powers conferred by this act upon the Governor to the extent that such delegation of power is, in the judgment of the Governor, necessary; provided, however, that all such powers shall be exercised in the name of the Governor. The Governor is authorized to establish an adequate organization to assist in supervising and co-ordinating the civilian defense activities of the State Government and of all of the political subdivisions of this State and for that purpose the said Governor is authorized and empowered, within the limits of appropriations, to establish and operate such subordinate offices as may be necessary. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to empower the Governor to delegate to the civilian defense director any of the powers heretofore conferred upon the established State Departments.
