Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith the fourth Saturday in October as Robert Frost Day, 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, as follows:
Chapter 6 of the General Laws is hereby amended by inserting after section 15BBBB, inserted by chapter 350 of the acts of 1998, the following section:-
Section 15CCCC. The governor shall annually issue a proclamation setting apart the fourth Saturday in October as Robert Frost Day, in recognition of Robert Frost's years in the commonwealth, during which time he lived and was educated in the city of Lawrence, and recommending that said day be observed in an appropriate manner by the people.
