Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

To capitalize the Mohawk Trail Woodland Partnership Fund established in section 89 of chapter 209 of the acts of 2018 and support the goals of the Mohawk Trail Woodland Partnership, the partnership may receive funds from general appropriations, capital expenditure authorizations, grants or a combination thereof; provided, however, that upon any money from any source being credited to the fund, the meetings of the partnership board and its executive committee shall be subject to sections 18 to 25, inclusive, of chapter 30A of the General Laws and all officers, directors and agents of the partnership, including all officers, directors and employees of any administrative agent or fund manager designated by the partnership under paragraph (6) of subsection (e) of section 91 of chapter 209 of the acts of 2018, shall, in connection with their service for the partnership: (i) comply with all applicable state finance laws; (ii) be considered officers or employees of an agency, commission or authority of the commonwealth for the purposes of clause Twenty-sixth of section 7 of chapter 4 of the General Laws; and (iii) be considered special state employees for the purposes of chapter 268A of the General Laws.
