Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately establish a time for state agencies to submit recommendations for legislation, 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,
Chapter 30 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 1994 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out section 33 and inserting in place thereof the following section:-
Section 33. Any state officer or department or head thereof making an annual report may include therein, in even-numbered years, recommendations for legislative action which recommendations shall contain a detailed explanation of reasons therefor, other than requests for appropriations or any matters required to be covered by budget estimates submitted to the budget director under section three or four of chapter twenty-nine. Such recommendations shall be filed with the clerk of the house of representatives on or before the first Wednesday in November preceding the first annual session of the general court.
