Signed on 2011-04-20 00:00:00.0 - First Regular Session - 125th Maine Legislature
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Resolve, Directing the Maine Turnpike Authority To Place Signs Directing Motorists to Hebron Academy at the Closest Interstate Exits

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

Whereas,  Hebron Academy is a college preparatory boarding and day school located in the Town of Hebron; and

Whereas,  Hebron Academy's student body currently represents many different countries and many states throughout the United States; and

Whereas,  it is important to ensure that directional signs be in place immediately because increased visibility on the Interstate 95 corridor is critical to the ability of the public, as well as those members of the student body who are unfamiliar with the State, to locate Hebron Academy; 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. Signs placed for Hebron Academy. Resolved: That the Maine Turnpike Authority, notwithstanding national guidelines relating to directional signs for highways, shall place directional signs on the portion of Interstate 95 designated as the Maine Turnpike at the northbound and southbound exits of the highway that are located closest to Hebron Academy and that Hebron Academy shall assume all costs associated with the directional signs.

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