Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to immediately establish a sick leave bank for a certain employee of the department of correction, 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, rule or regulation to the contrary, the department of correction shall establish a sick leave bank for Thomas A. Connolly, an employee of the department of correction. Any employee of said department may voluntarily contribute 1 or more of his sick, personal or vacation days to said sick leave bank for use by Thomas A. Connolly. Upon such time as Thomas A. Connolly terminates his employment with the department of correction or requests to dissolve the sick leave bank, the balance of sick leave shall be transferred to the extended illness leave bank.
