Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately provide for campaign contributions by persons in the public service, 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 15 of chapter 55 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 1994 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out the second paragraph and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-
Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent any officer, clerk or other person in the public service of the commonwealth, or of any county, city, or town from making a contribution to a candidate or to an elected or nonelected political committee.
