Resolve, To Name a Bridge in North Berwick the North Berwick Veterans Memorial Bridge
Emergency preamble. Whereas, acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, this resolve has a time-sensitive goal of naming a bridge in the Town of North Berwick the North Berwick Veterans Memorial Bridge in time for veterans ceremonies planned in North Berwick in May 2010; 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
Sec. 1. Bridge named. Resolved: That the Department of Transportation shall designate the bridge over the Great Works River on State Route 9 in the Town of North Berwick as the North Berwick Veterans Memorial Bridge and erect appropriate signs that identify that bridge as the North Berwick Veterans Memorial Bridge.
