  • Chapter 220 AN ACT RELATIVE TO THE OPERATION OF CERTAIN AGENCIES IN ANTICIPATION OF SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDING.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith for a fair and orderly manner in which programs and benefit services of the department of social services and the department of transitional assistance are administered, 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:


For fiscal year 2002, notwithstanding sections 26 and 27 and the second paragraph of section 29 of chapter 29 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, the comptroller shall at the direction of the secretary of administration and finance permit disbursements or the incurring of obligations before July 1, 2002 over the amount appropriated in chapter 177 of the acts of 2001, in the following amounts for which it is anticipated that supplemental funds will be made available in the following accounts: 4403-2000, not more than $15,656,752; 4404-1000, not more than $2,063,909; 4408-1000, not more than $7,248,574; 4800-0031, not more than $21,842,161; and 4800-0041, not more than $33,264,191.
