Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately extend the moratorium on the conversion of single room occupancy dwelling units, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate 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,
SECTION 1. Chapter 671 of the acts of 1989 is hereby amended by striking out section 9 and inserting in place thereof the following section:-
Section 9. This act shall become inoperative on October ninth, nineteen hundred and ninety-one.
SECTION 2. The provisions of chapter six hundred and seventy-one of the acts of 1989, shall not apply to single room occupancy dwellings in which each and every single room occupancy dwelling unit became vacant after January ninth, nineteen hundred and ninety but before the effective date of this act, as a result of an order issued by a licensing board or code enforcement agency of a city or town, or an order of a court.
