An Act To Reduce Milfoil Infestations
Emergency preamble. Whereas, acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, invasive plants threaten the State’s lakes, ponds and waterways; and
Whereas, for every year that an invasive plant is allowed to grow unchecked, the invasive plant becomes more pervasive and more difficult to eradicate; and
Whereas, this legislation needs to take effect before the end of the 90-day period to ensure that the measures this legislation proposes to deal with invasive plants can be implemented this summer; 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,
Sec. 1. 12 MRSA 13061, sub- 4, C is enacted to read:
Sec. 2. 12 MRSA 13061-A is enacted to read:
13061-A. Permit for water-ski jump or slalom course
