Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately authorize certain purchases of oil and other fuel supplies without bids, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
SECTION 1.

SECTION 2. The provisions of the first paragraph of subsection (f) of section nineteen of chapter seven hundred and seventy-five of the acts of nineteen hundred and seventy-five shall not apply to the purchase of oil or other fuel supplies.
