JOHN F. X. DAVOREN
The General Court, which was chosen November 8, 1966, assembled on Wednesday, the fourth day of January, 1967, for its first annual session.
The oaths of office were taken and subscribed by His Excellency JOHN A. VOLPE and His Honor FRANCIS W. SARGENT, on Thursday, the fifth day of January, in the presence of the two Houses assembled in convention.
Chap. 1. AN ACT ESTABLISHING THE OFFICES OF SECOND ASSISTANT
CLERK OF THE SENATE AND OF THE HOUSE OF REPRE
SENTATIVES. Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is, in part, to establish the offices of second assistant clerk of the senate and of the house of representatives as early as possible during the current session of 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:
Chapter 3 of the General Laws is hereby amended by striking out section 13, as most recently amended by section 2 of chapter 260 of the acts of 1943, and inserting in place thereof the following section:
Section 13. The clerks of the senate and house of representatives, subject to the approval of the senate and house, respectively, may each appoint an assistant clerk and a second assistant clerk, who shall receive such salaries as may be established by the committee on rules of the senate or the committee on rules of the house, as the case may be. The assistant clerk shall, in the absence of the clerk, perform the duties of the clerk unless a temporary clerk is chosen. The second assistant clerk shall, in the absence of the clerk and the assistant clerk, perform the duties of clerk, unless a temporary clerk is chosen. Salaries established for said assistant clerks and second assistant clerks under this section shall be for the period of two years commencing January first of the year in which established. Each clerk may remove the assistant clerk and the second assistant clerk appointed by him. Each clerk may also employ such clerical assistance as may be necessary, and may expend therefor such amounts as are appropriated.
Approved February 7, 1967.
Chap. 2. AN ACT ESTABLISHING THE COMPENSATION, AND THE
EXPENSE AND TRAVEL ALLOWANCES OF THE MEMBERS OF
NINETEEN HUNDRED AND SIXTY-EIGHT. Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is, in part, to provide forthwith for the payment of increased compensation and allowances for expenses, travel, lodging and meals to members of the General Court in order to prevent extreme hardship among such members because of the inadequacy of the present scale of such compensation and allowances due to the ever increasing costs of living, board, lodging and travel, therefore it is hereby declared
