The 192nd General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT RELATIVE TO THE DISTRIBUTION OF CERTAIN GRANTS TO REGIONAL TOURISM COUNCILS.

SECTION 1.  Notwithstanding any other general or special law to the contrary, grants from the amounts collected pursuant to subsection (a) of section 13T of chapter 23A of the General Laws allocated to regional tourism councils pursuant to clause (ii) of subsection (d) of said section 13T for fiscal year 2022 shall be distributed no later than September 30, 2021 pursuant to a transfer schedule determined by the executive office for administration and finance.

SECTION 2.  Notwithstanding any other general or special law to the contrary, grants from the amounts collected pursuant to subsection (b) of section 13T of chapter 23A of the General Laws allocated to regional tourism councils pursuant to clause (ii) of subsection (d) of said section 13T for fiscal year 2021 shall be distributed no later than December 30, 2021 pursuant to a transfer schedule determined by the executive office for administration and finance.
