The 192nd General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts


Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith financial relief to Nora O'Reilly, 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:

Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the commonwealth shall pay, out of funds administered by the division of victim compensation and assistance division within the department of the attorney general, pursuant to chapter 258C of the General Laws, the sum of $4,000 to Nora O'Reilly of the city of Boston as reimbursement for funeral expenses incurred as the result of the murder of her son on September 29, 1994.

Approved November 26, 2002.
