Emergency Preamble

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to ensure the sustainability of the agricultural industry in the Commonwealth given the recent judicial ruling in Arias-Villano v. Chang and Sons Enterprises, Inc., 481 Mass. 625 (March 15, 2019), therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
