AN ACT RELATIVE TO RUTLAND HEIGHTS STATE HOSPITAL.
Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to facilitate forthwith the issuance of bonds to carry out the purposes of a certain act passed by the general court, 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 4 of chapter 245 of the acts of 2000 is hereby amended by adding the following sentence:- If the commissioner determines that a portion of the $10,000,000 shall not be needed for the site, the commissioner may, subject to the laws regulating the disbursement of public funds and the approval thereof but notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter or chapter 53 or any other general or special law to the contrary, expend not more than $1,400,000 of the $10,000,000 to provide for demolition, preparation of plans and specifications and related administrative expenses for other real property owned by the commonwealth.
