Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Social Security Law on August fourteenth, nineteen hundred and thirty-five, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate observation of that historic law and day and the preservation of the public convenience.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
Chapter 6 of the General Laws is hereby amended by inserting after section 12KK the following section:-
Section 12LL. The governor shall annually issue a proclamation setting apart the fourteenth day of August as Social Security Day in recognition of the contribution of the Social Security system to the dignity and well-being of Americans of all ages and recommending that said day be observed in an appropriate manner by the people.
