AN ACT RELATIVE TO HANDICAPPED STICKERS FOR MOTORCYCLE LICENSE PLATES.
Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its
purpose, which is to extend forthwith handicap access rights to persons owning
motorcycles, 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 2 of chapter 90 of the
General Laws, as appearing in the 2000 Official
Edition, is hereby amended by striking out, in lines 259 to 262, the words ",
the medical advisory board as established by section eight C, may determine
other standards of disability and handicap and of qualification for the
of said plates as said board deems proper" and inserting in place thereof the
following words:- and the registrar may furnish emblems displaying the
"International Symbol of Access" to be affixed to motorcycle registration
in a location to be determined by the registrar; provided, however, that the
medical advisory board established by section 8C may determine such other
standards of disability and handicap and of qualification for the issuance of
such plates or emblems as the board deems proper; and provided, further, that
sentence shall not apply to motorized bicycles.
