AN ACT DECLARING SEPTEMBER 11 AS UNITY DAY.
Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would
tend to defeat its purpose, which is forthwith to provide for declaring September
11 as Unity Day, 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:
6 of the General Laws is hereby amended by inserting after section 15RRRR,
inserted by chapter 20 of the acts of 2003, the following section:-
15SSSS. The governor shall annually issue a proclamation setting apart September
11 as Unity Day, the official state day honoring all September 11, 2001 victims
and heroes and promoting peace, unity and social action, and recommending that
the day be observed in an appropriate manner by the people.
