  • Chapter 27 AN ACT RELATIVE TO THE SALE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ON CERTAIN HOLIDAYS.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith for the sale of alcoholic beverages on certain holidays, 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 6 of chapter 136 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 1996 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out, in lines 183 to 185, inclusive, the words "or on a legal holiday as defined in clause eighteenth of section seven of chapter four when said holiday occurs on one of the Sundays described herein" and inserting in place thereof the following words:- or on Christmas day if Christmas occurs on a Sunday.

Approved July 1, 1999.
