Chapter 6 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after section 15PPPPP the following section:-
Section 15QQQQQ. The governor shall annually issue a proclamation setting apart July 22 as Fragile X Awareness Day, in recognition of the successes achieved in diagnosis and treatment through spreading awareness in the Fragile X community and beyond, and recommending that the day be observed in an appropriate manner by the people.
