  • Chapter 390 AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE ANNUAL OBSERVANCE OF WORLD WAR II COMMEMORATION DAY.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to provide forthwith for the annual observance of World War II Commemoration 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:

Chapter 6 of the General Laws is hereby amended by inserting after section 15XXXX the following section:-

Section 15YYYY. The governor shall annually issue a proclamation setting apart September 2 as World War II Commemoration Day, in honor of those who served in that war and recommending that the day be observed in an appropriate manner by the people and recommending that church bells be rung at 9:04 a.m. on that day in recognition of the final surrender of Japan and the formal conclusion of the conflict.

Approved November 2, 2004.
