Chapter 122 AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2006 TO PROVIDE FOR SUPPLEMENTING CERTAIN EXISTING APPROPRIATIONS AND FOR CERTAIN OTHER ACTIVITIES AND PROJECTS.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to make forthwith appropriations for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2005, and to make certain changes in law, 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:


SECTION 1. To provide for supplementing certain items in the general appropriation act and other appropriation acts for fiscal year 2006, the sums set forth in section 2 are hereby appropriated from the General Fund unless specifically designated otherwise in this act or in those appropriation acts, for the several purposes and subject to the conditions specified in this act or in those appropriation acts and subject to laws regulating the disbursement of public funds. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, appropriations made in this act shall not revert and shall be available for expenditure until June 30, 2007. The sums in said section 2 shall be in addition to any amounts previously appropriated and made available for the purposes of those items.
