The 191st General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT FURTHER EXTENDING THE TIME FOR WHICH CERTAIN LAND IN NORFOLK COUNTY MAY BE USED AS A TEMPORARY MINIMUM SECURITY ALTERNATIVE CORRECTION CENTER.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to extend the time for which certain land in Norfolk county may be used as a temporary minimum security alternative correction center, 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, as follows:


Section 1 of chapter 109 of the acts of 1987 is hereby amended by striking out the second paragraph, as most recently amended by chapter 51 of the acts of 1995, and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-

Said center shall remain in operation only until June 30, 1999; provided, however, that if the operation of said facility or the placement of inmates within said facility is removed from the control of the Norfolk county sheriff, the provisions of this act shall terminate within 90 days after such removal.

Approved July 3, 1997.
