Bill Information

Presenter:
Peter Capano

Emergency Preamble

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide protection to the Commonwealth’s manufacturing workforce, as they are at an increased risk of contracting COVID-19 due to work that cannot be performed remotely and puts workers in close proximity with others, often touching many of the same surfaces and sharing tools, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health and convenience.
