Amend the bill by inserting after the title and before the enacting clause the following:

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 Act expands the definition of "epinephrine autoinjector" to include devices approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration that deliver a specific dose of epinephrine by means other than automatic injection; and

Whereas,  this Act provides more flexibility for entities, including, but not limited to, recreation camps, colleges, universities, day care facilities, youth sports leagues, amusement parks, restaurants and sports arenas, that purchase epinephrine for emergency purposes to consider lower-cost alternatives; and

Whereas,  this Act, if it becomes effective prior to the expiration of the 90-day period, could provide financial relief to youth camps, recreational camps, municipal recreation programs and amusement parks before the upcoming summer season; 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,

Amend the bill by adding before the summary the following:

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

Amend the bill by relettering or renumbering any nonconsecutive Part letter or section number to read consecutively.


This amendment adds an emergency preamble and emergency clause to the bill.
