Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately authorize G. John Pedone to continue his employment as a court officer, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public safety.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law or rule or regulation to the contrary, G. John Pedone, a court officer of the district court department, Worcester division of the trial court of the commonwealth is hereby authorized to continue in such position, provided he is mentally and physically capable of performing the duties of this office or position. Said G. John Pedone, shall annually, at his own expense, be examined by an impartial physician designated by the state retirement board to determine such capability. No further deductions shall be made from the regular compensation of said employee under the provisions of chapter thirty-two of the General Laws for service subsequent to the date of his seventieth birthday and upon retirement said employee shall receive a superannuation retirement allowance equal to that which he would have been entitled had he retired on said date.
