SECTION 1.   Chapter 272 of the acts of 1975 is hereby repealed.

SECTION 2.   The building of the State Laboratory Institute, located in the Jamaica Plain district of the city of Boston , shall be designated and known as the William A. Hinton Laboratory, in memory of Dr. William A. Hinton, a pioneer in bacteriology and immunology and former head of the d epartment of public h ealth state biologic   laboratory.   A suitable marker bearing said designation shall be attached to the building by the department of public health.
