  • Chapter 108 AN ACT AUTHORIZING EVAN GOLANN AND DAVID J. BERGERON TO TAKE THE STATE POLICE EXAMINATION NOTWITHSTANDING THE MAXIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith Evan Golann and David J. Bergeron to take an imminent state police examination notwithstanding the maximum age requirement, 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. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 10 of chapter 22C of the General Laws regarding the maximum age of applicants for initial enlistment as uniformed members of the state police, Evan Golann shall be eligible to take the next competitive examination for appointment for initial enlistment as a uniformed member of the state police and, provided he meets all other requirements, shall be eligible for appointment.

SECTION 2. Notwithstanding the provisions of said section 10 of said chapter 22C regarding the maximum age of applicants for initial enlistment as uniformed members of the state police, David J. Bergeron shall be eligible to take the next competitive examination for appointment for initial enlistment as a uniformed member of the state police and, provided he meets all other requirements, shall be eligible for appointment.

SECTION 3. The provisions of this act relative to the eligibility for examination shall apply to the test administered on February 7, 1998, and eligibility for appointment as a result of taking said test shall apply to the appointment of two classes on or after February 7, 1998 or for one year following the effective date of this act, whichever first occurs.

Became law without the Acting Governor's signature, May 4, 1998.
