Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately extend the time for which certain land in Norfolk county may be used as a temporary minimum security alternative correction center, 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 of chapter 109 of the acts of 1987 is hereby amended by striking out the second paragraph, as appearing in chapter 86 of the acts of 1993, and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-
Said center shall remain in operation only until June thirtieth, nineteen hundred and ninety-seven; provided, however, that if the operation of said facility or the placement of inmates within said facility is removed from the control of the Norfolk county sheriff, the provisions of this act shall terminate within ninety days therefrom.
