“SECTION __. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the Municipal Police Training Committee shall develop a plan for the establishment of one or more permanent facilities to provide training in the use of firearms and the operation of motor vehicles, provided that such plan shall take into account factors including but not limited to geographic location and access for police departments throughout the Commonwealth, the existence and availability of property which is in use or could be adapted to use for these purposes, the relative benefits of leasing facilities for these purposes versus purchasing them, and the estimated costs of establishing such facilities.

Said plan shall be completed not later than nine months following the passage of this act and shall be filed with the clerks of the House of Representatives and Senate, the committees on ways and means of the House and Senate, and the Joint Committee on Public Safety
