Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith further to 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, as follows:
SECTION 1. Section 1 of chapter 109 of the acts of 1987 is hereby amended by striking out the second paragraph, as appearing in section 1 of chapter 42 of the acts of 2001, and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-
The center shall remain in operation until June 30, 2005. If the operation of the facility or the placement of inmates within the facility is removed from the control of the sheriff of Norfolk county, this act shall terminate 90 days after such removal.
This act shall take effect as of June 30, 2003.
