Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately provide for the right to seek damages for breach of a subcontract without terminating the subcontract or ceasing performance thereunder, 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. Paragraph (c) of subsection (4) of section 44F of chapter 149 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 1994 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after the third paragraph the following paragraph:-
The contractor and subcontractor shall have the right to seek damages for breach of a subcontract without terminating the subcontract or ceasing performance thereunder.
SECTION 2. The provisions of this act shall be construed to apply to contracts executed whether it was before, on, or after the effective date of this act.
