Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately authorize the division of capital planning and operations to permit the General Electric Company to transfer certain easements, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
The division of capital planning and operations, acting for and on behalf of the commonwealth, is hereby authorized to amend the agreements represented by the documents recorded with the Berkshire county middle district registry of deeds in Book 882 at Page 5 and Book 901 at Page 159 in order to permit the transfer, without consideration, by the General Electric Company, a New York corporation, to Electric Power Research Institute, a nonprofit District of Columbia corporation, of its easements land, now under the control of the division of fisheries and wildlife, under said agreements.
In consideration of such amendment the General Electric Company shall convey to the commonwealth a parcel of land abutting the Housatonic river in the town of Lenox, containing five acres, more or less, which shall be placed under the control of said division of fisheries and wildlife.
