Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to establish forthwith a memorial in recognition of patrolman Walter P. Langley, 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 underpass on Copeland drive in the town of Mansfield shall be designated and known as the Patrolman Walter P. Langley Memorial Underpass, in recognition of patrolman Walter P. Langley who was killed in the line of duty at that location on Sunday, October 2, 1983. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation shall erect and maintain suitable markers bearing the designation in compliance with the standards of the department.
Approved, May 22, 2014.
