An Act To Amend the Occupancy Limits for Campsites in the Unorganized Territories

Emergency preamble. Whereas,  acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and

Whereas,  the 2009 camping season will begin well in advance of the expiration of the 90-day period; and

Whereas,  in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 12 MRSA §682, sub-§18,  as repealed and replaced by PL 2001, c. 402, §2, is amended to read:

18. Transient occupancy.   "Transient occupancy" means occupancy that does not exceed 90 consecutive 120 days in a calendar year.

Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.

Effective March 31, 2009.
