[Note: Despite the title, we believe this is actually amending Executive Order 74, and not 114, which is on an entirely different topic.]

WHEREAS, veterans are deserving of full employment opportunities in recognition of their service to this nation particularly those of the Vietnam conflict; and

WHEREAS, our Commonwealth already expresses employment preference for members of other groupings in an effort to promote employment among disadvantaged groups;

NOW THEREFORE, Executive Order No. 114, as most recently amended by Executive Orders Nos. 116 and 117, is hereby further amended by adding at the end the following paragraph:

Article XVI. Within ten days of the date of this Executive Order, the Division of Personnel Administration shall issue guidelines for the revision of the current affirmative action plans of state agencies. These guidelines shall provide for the development of affirmative action strategies for the employment of Vietnam Era Veterans and disabled persons.

This Order shall take effect immediately.

Given at the Executive Chamber in Boston this 6th day of January in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and eighty three and of the independence of the United States of America two hundred and eight.

EDWARD J. KING
GOVERNOR
Commonwealth of Massachusetts

MICHAEL JOSEPH CONNOLLY
