Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to grant to the Masonic Education and Charity Trust an immediate extension of its authority to hold additional funds and property, 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,
Chapter 24 of the special acts of 1916 is hereby amended by striking out section 1, as most recently amended by chapter 196 of the acts of 1965, and inserting in place thereof the following section:-
Section 1. The Masonic Education and Charity Trust may hold such real and personal estate as may be deposited with or received by it.
