Emergency Preamble

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to make supplemental appropriations for fiscal year 2020 in order to provide prompt relief to families, elders and persons with disabilities struggling to meet unanticipated expenditures and loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health.
