Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith the city of Salem as the birthplace of the National Guard, 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 2 of the General Laws is hereby amended by adding the following section:-
Section 60. The city of Salem shall be designated and known as the birthplace of the National Guard.
Approved, August 19, 2010.
