Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize the county treasurer of the county of Norfolk to transfer unclaimed land damages to the general fund of the county, 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,
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of sections seven D and seven E of chapter seventy-nine of the General Laws, the county treasurer of the county of Norfolk is hereby authorized to transfer to the general fund of said county, so much of the unclaimed land damages, not to exceed the sum of one hundred thousand two hundred and forty-six dollars plus accrued interest, as represent damages for any such takings made by the county commissioners of said county prior to July first, nineteen hundred and eighty.
SECTION 2. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, any person claiming an interest in any such damages as are identified in section one of this act, may establish his claim at any time hereafter. The county commissioners shall make a final determination on any such claim and may make payments therefor from any available funds.
