AN ACT INCREASING THE PUNISHMENT FOR DRAG RACING.
Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the exchange of certain land held for conservation and recreation purposes between the division of capital asset management and maintenance and the Nye Family of America Association, Inc., 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:
The first paragraph of section 17B of chapter 90 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2006 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out the second and third sentences and inserting in place thereof the following 2 sentences:- Whoever violates this section shall be punished by imprisonment in the house of correction for not more than 2 1/2 years or by a fine of not more than $1,000. The registrar shall suspend such violator’s license for a period of not less than 30 days for a first offense and for not less than 180 days for any subsequent violation.
