Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately effect the conveyance of permanent and temporary easements in two certain parcels of land owned by the commonwealth in the towns of Groton and Pepperell by the division of capital planning and operations to the town of Groton for the purpose of laying out and constructing a sewer line, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
