  • Chapter 176 AN ACT DESIGNATING POLISH AMERICAN CONGRESS DAY.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith Polish American Congress Day, therefore it is hereby declared to 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 15LLLLL, inserted by chapter 71 of the acts of 2009, the following section:-

Section 15MMMMM. The governor shall annually issue a proclamation setting apart October thirtieth as Polish American Congress Day, in recognition of the capacity of the Polish American Congress established in 1944 to represent the domestic and international concerns of Americans of Polish descent at both the state and federal levels of government in the United States, and recommending that said day be observed in an appropriate manner by the people.

Approved December 14, 2009.
