Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately establish a sick leave bank for a certain employee of the department of social services, 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,
Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law, rule or
regulation to the contrary, the department of social services is hereby
authorized and directed to establish a sick leave bank for Area Program Manager
Leonard J. Baxendale. Any employee of the department of social services may
voluntarily contribute one or more of his sick, personal or vacation days to
said bank for use by Leonard J. Baxendale.
