1. Schedules, Filing of. Every insurance company author- 
ized to transact business in this state which insures against 
loss by reason of the liabihty to pay damages to others for 
damage to property and/or bodily injury including death aris- 
ing from the operation, maintenance or use of motor vehicles 
within this state, may file with the insurance commissioner, in- 
dividually or in collaboration with others, in such form as he 
may prescribe, its classification of risks and premium rates ap- 
plicable thereto, together with a schedule or rating to be in use 
and such other statistical information as the commissioner 
may require. 

2. Rates Effective. No such schedule of premium rates 
shall take effect until the commissioner shall approve the same 
as adequate, reasonable and non-discriminatory as against 
citizens or classes of citizens of this state for the rates to 
which they respectively apply and no company authorized to 
transact business in this state shall make, write, place or cause 
to be made, any motor vehicle policy except at a rate approved 
by the commissioner. 

3. Withdrawal of Approval. The commissioner may at 
any time withdraw his approval of any premium rate or 
schedule made by any company, if, in his judgment, such pre- 
mium rates or schedule are unreasonable, inadequate or dis- 
criminatory and such company shall thereafter issue policies 
only at a rate which has received the approval of the insurance 
commissioner. 



1929] Chapter 83 95 

4. Uniformity of Rates. The commissioner shall have the 
authority to refuse to approve any premium rate which shall 
be higher or lower than that already in effect and applying to 
the same type of contract and classification of risks to the end 
that the rates may be adequate, reasonable and non-discrim- 
inatory. 

5. Revocation. The license of any company which violates 
any of the foregoing provisions may be revoked by the com- 
missioner for a period not exceeding one year. 

6. Rehearing. Within twenty days after any approval, 
disapproval or other order or decision hereunder has been 
made by the commissioner any party to the action or proceed- 
ing or any policyholder or other person whose rights are 
affected by such order or decision may apply for a rehearing in 
respect to any matter determined in the action or proceeding, 
or covered or included in the order, specifying in the motion 
for rehearing the ground therefor, and the commissioner may 
grant such rehearing if in his opinion good reason therefor 
is stated in said motion. 

7. , Specifications. Such motion shall set forth fully 

every ground upon which it is claimed that the decision or 
order complained of is unlawful or unreasonable. No appeal 
from any order or decision of the commissioner shall be taken 
unless the appellant shall have made application for rehearing 
as herein provided, and when such application shall have been 
made, no ground not set forth therein shall be urged, relied on 
or given any consideration by the court, unless the court for 
good cause shown shall allow the appellant to specify addi- 
tional grounds. 

8. Action on Motion. Upon the filing of such motion for 
rehearing, the commissioner shall within ten days either grant 
or deny the same, or suspend the order or decision complained 
of pending further consideration, provided, however, that the 
commissioner in case of his refusal to approve of the schedule 
of rates shall not be required to estabhsh the proposed rates 
pending such further consideration. Any order of suspension 
may be upon such terms and conditions as the commissioner 
may prescribe. As a condition of the granting of such rehear- 
ing the commissioner may employ actuaries or other assist- 
ants for the purpose of further investigating the subject 
matter of the order or decision and may require the person or 



96 Chapter 83 [1920 

company seeking such rehearing to guarantee the payment of 
the expenses incurred thereby. 

9. Appeal. Within thirty days after the apphcation for a 
rehearing is denied, or if the apphcation is granted, then with- 
in thirty days after the decision on such rehearing, the apph- 
cant may appeal by petition to the supreme court. 

10. Petition. Such petition shall state briefly the nature 
of the proceeding before the commissioner, and shall set forth 
the order or decision complained of, and the grounds upon 
which the same is claimed to be unlawful or unreasonable upon 
which the petitioner will rely in the supreme court. 

11. Parties. Any person or corporation whose rights may 
be directly affected by said appeal may with the consent of 
the court appear and become a party, or the court may order 
such persons and corporations to be joined as parties as justice 
may require. 

12. Notice to Commissioner. Upon the filing of an appeal, 
the clerk of court shall issue an order of notice requiring the 
commissioner to file with the court a certified copy of the 
record in the proceeding, together with such of the evidence 
introduced before or considered by the commissioner as may 
be specified by any party in interest, as well as such other 
evidence, so introduced and considered, as the commissioner 
may deem proper to certify, together with the originals or 
copies of all exhibits introduced in evidence before the com- 
missioner. 

13. Other Notice. Such notice as the court may order 
shall also be given to persons and corporations who were par- 
ties to the proceeding before the commissioner, or who may 
be ordered joined by the court. 

14. Fees for Copies. The commissioner shall collect from 
the party making the appeal a fee of ten cents per folio of 
one hundred words for the copy of the record and such testi- 
mony and exhibits as shall be transferred, and five cents per 
folio for manifold copies, and shall not be required to certify 
the record upon any such appeal, nor shall said appeal be 
considered, until the fees for copies have been paid. 

15. Argument. Upon the filing of said copy of the record, 
evidence and exhibits, the case shall be in order for argument 
at the next regular session of the court, unless the same be 
postponed for good cause shown. 

16. Burden of Proof. Upon the hearing the burden of 



1929] Chapter 88 97 

proof shall be upon the party seeking to set aside any order or 
decision of the commissioner to show that the same is clearly 
unreasonable or unlawful, and all findings of the commissioner 
upon all questions of fact properly shown before it shall be 
deemed to be prima facie lawful and reasonable ; and the order 
or decision appealed from shall not be set aside or vacated 
except for errors of law, unless the court is satisfied, by a clear 
preponderance of the evidence before it, that such order is 
unjust or unreasonable. 

17. Additional Evidence. No new or additional evidence 
shall be introduced in the supreme court, but the case shall be 
determined upon the record and evidence transferred, except 
that in any case if it shall be necessary in order that no party 
shall be deprived of any constitutional right, or if the court 
shall be of the opinion that justice requires the reception of 
evidence of facts which have occurred since the hearing, or 
which by reason of accident, mistake or misfortune could not 
have been offered before the commissioner, it may receive and 
consider additional evidence. 

18. , Taking. Such additional evidence may be taken 

before a single justice or otherwise, as the court may order. 

19. , Stay of Proceedings. If the court in any case shall 

hear new evidence such new evidence shall, upon the motion 
of any party, be transmitted by copy to the commissioner, and 
all proceedings shall be stayed for twenty days from the date 
of such transmission. 

20. , Action of Commissioner. Upon receipt of such 

evidence, the commissioner shall consider the same and may 
alter, modify, amend or rescind the order or decision appealed 
from, and shall report his action thereon to the court within 
said twenty days. 

21. Subsequent Proceedings. If the commissioner shall 
rescind the order appealed from, the appeal shall be dismissed ; 
if he shall alter, modify or amend the same, such altered, modi- 
fied or amended order shall take the place of the original order 
complained of; and the court shall render judgment with refer- 
ence thereto in said appeal as though said order had been made 
by the commissioner in the first instance, after allowing any 
amendments of the pleadings or other incidental proceedings 
desired by the parties which the changed situation may re- 
quire. 

22. Evidence, How Considered. All evidence transferred 



98 Chapter 83 [1929 

by the commissioner shall be, and all additional evidence re- 
ceived may be, considered by the court regardless of any tech- 
nical rule which might have rendered the same inadmissible 
if originally offered in the trial of an action at law. 

23. Judgment. The final judgment upon every appeal 
shall be a decree dismissing the appeal, or vacating the order 
complained of in whole or in part, as the case may be; but in 
case such order is wholly or partly vacated the court may also, 
in its discretion, remand the matter to the commissioner for 
such further proceedings, not inconsistent with the decree, as 
in the opinion of the commissioner justice may require. 

24. Suspension of Order. No appeal or other proceedings 
taken from an order of the commissioner shall suspend the 
operation of such order; provided, that the supreme court may 
order a suspension of such order pending the determination 
of such appeal or other proceeding whenever, in the opinion 
of the court, justice may require such suspension; but no order 
providing for the establishing of a schedule of rates higher 
than that approved by the commissioner shall be issued except 
upon conditions to be imposed by the court, providing a means 
for securing the prompt repayment of the excess rate over and 
above the premium rates which shall be finally determined to 
be reasonable and just. 

25. , Conditions. Any order of the court establishing 

such higher rate shall among other things provide that the 
company affected by said order shall keep such accounts as 
shall suffice to show the amount being collected by such com- 
pany pending the appeal in excess of the amounts which it 
would have collected if the order or decree of the commissioner 
had not been suspended and that any such excess shall be im.- 
pounded within the state or paid into court. 

26. Contempt of Court. Whenever there is occasion after 
final decision for the distribution of said excess, any violation 
on the part of any company or of the officers or members 
thereof, of the order of the court providing for the repayment 
of said excess may be punished as a contempt of court. 

27. Remedy Exclusive. No proceeding other than the appeal 
herein provided for shall be maintained in any court of this 
state to set aside, enjoin the enforcement of or otherwise 
review or impeach any order of the commissioner made pur- 
suant to the provisions hereof except as otherwise specially 
provided.

Whereas, the health and personal liberty of the individual 
inmate and the welfare of society may be promoted in certain 
cases by the sterilization of mental defectives and those 
mentally diseased under careful safeguards and by competent 
and conscientious authority; and 

Whereas, such sterilization may be effected in males by 
vasectomy and in females by salpingectomy, both of which 
operations may be performed without serious pain or sub- 
stantial danger to the life of the patient ; and 

Whereas, the state now has in custody and is supporting 



162 Chapter 138 [1929 

many mentally deficient and diseased persons who when dis- 
charged are likely by the propagation of their kind to increase 
the social and economic burden and who, if incapable of 
propagating, might be discharged or paroled and thereby 
lessen the economic burdens of the state; and 

Whereas, human experience has demonstrated that 
lieredity plays an important part in the transmission of in- 
sanity, idiocy, imbecility, epilepsy and crime; now, therefore, 

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in 
. . General Court convened: 

1. Authorization. Whenever the superintendent of any 
state or county institution shall be of opinion that it is for 
the best interests of the inmate and of society that any inmate

such superintendent is hereby authorized to cause to be per- 
formed by some capable surgeon the operation of sterilization 
on any such inmate confined in such institution afflicted with 
liereditary forms of insanity that are recurrent, idiocy, im- 
becility, feeble-mindedness or epilepsy ; provided that such 
superintendent shall have first comphed with the requirements 
of this act; and said operation may be ordered by the super- 
intendent if the board hereinafter authorized so directs and 
the order is not set aside or modified by the court as herein- 
after provided. 

2. Examination. Such superintendent shall first cause an 
examination of such inmate and his or her history and records, 
to be made by two physicians, registered in the state, of two 
or more years' practice and in no way connected with such 
institution or related to the patient, and their signed opinion, 
together with that of the superintendent, shall accompany a 
petition made by the superintendent of such institution to 
the board of county commissioners or governing board of 
said institution, and praying that an order may be made by 
said board, requiring the superintendent of such institution 
to have performed by some competent surgeon designated by 
said board, upon the inmate of the institution named in 
such petition, the operation of vasectomy if upon a male and 
of salpingectomy if upon a female. 

3. Petition, Service. A copy of said petition must be 
served upon the inmate, together with a notice in writing, 
designating the time and place in said institution, not less than 



1929] Chapter 138 168 

fourteen days before the presentation of such petition to said 
board, when and where said board maj^ hear and act upon 
such petition. A copy of said petition and notice shall also be 
served upon the legal or natural guardian of the said inmate 
if such guardian be known to the said superintendent, and if 
there be no such guardian or none such be known to the said 
superintendent, then the said superintendent shall apply to 
the probate court of the county in which the said institution 
is situated, who, by proper order which shall be recorded in 
the files of the said court, shall appoint some suitable person 
to act as guardian of the said inmate during and for the pur- 
poses of proceedings under this act, to defend the rights and 
interests of the said inmate, and the guardian so appointed 
shall be paid by the said institution a fee of not exceeding 
twenty dollars as may be determined by said court, for his 
services under said appointment, and such guardian shall be 
seryed likewise with a copy of the aforesaid petition and 
notice. Such guardian may be removed or discharged at any 
time by the said court and a new guardian appointed and 
substituted in his place. 

4. Hearing. After the notice required by this act shall 
have been so given, the said board, at the time and place 
named therein, with such reasonable continuances from time 
to time and from place to place as the said board may deter- 
mine, shall proceed to hear and consider the said petition and 
the evidence oifered in support of and against the same; pro- 
vided that the said board shall see to it that the said inmate 
shall have opportunity and leave to attend the said hearings in 
person if desired by the inmate or if requested by the guardian 
served with the notice and petition aforesaid. The said board 
may receive and consider as evidence at the said hearing the 
commitment papers and other records of the said inmate 
within any of the aforesaid named institutions, as certified 
by the superintendents thereof, together with such other legal 
evidence as may be offered by any party to the proceedings.

said petition or if the said board shall find that the said inmate 
is insane, idiotic, imbecile, feeble-minded or epileptic, and by 
the laws of heredity is the probable potential parent of 
socially inadequate offspring likewise afflicted, that the said 
inmate may be sexually sterilized without detriment to his or 
her general health, and that the welfare of the inmate and of 
society will be promoted by such sterilization, the said board 
may order the said superintendent to have performed by some 
competent surgeon to be named in such order, upon the inmate, 
aftei- not less than thirty days from the date of such order, 
the operation of vasectomy if a male or of salpingectomy if a 
female; provided that nothing in this act shall be construed 
to authorize the operation of castration nor the removal of 
sound organs from the body. , 

7. Supreme Court Appeal. From any order so entered by 
the said board, the said superintendent or the said inmate or 
guardian or parent or next friend may within fourteen days 
after the date of such order appeal by petition to the supreme 
court. Such petition shall state briefly the nature of the pro- 
ceedings before the board and shall set forth the order or 
decision complained of and the grounds upon which the same 
is claimed to be .unlawful or unreasonable upon which the 
petitioner shall rely in the supreme court and the court may 
order such persons to be joined as parties as justice may 
require. 

8. Notice to Board. Upon the filing of an appeal the clerk 
of court shall issue an order of notice requiring the board to 
file with the court a certified copy of the record in the pro- 
ceeding, including the evidence therein and such other legal 
evidence as the said court may consider pertinent and proper. 
If it shall be necessary in order that no party shall be de- 
prived of any constitutional right or if the court shall be of 
the opinion that justice requires the reception of evidence 
of facts which have occurred since the hearing or which by 
reason of accident, mistake or misfortune could not have been 
offered before the board, the court may receive and consider 
additional evidence. Such additional evidence may be taken 
before a single justice or otherwise as the court may order. 

9. Stay of Proceeding. The pendency of such appeal shall 



1929] Chapter 139 165

affirm, revise or reverse the orders of the said board appealed 
from and may enter such order as it deems just and right, 
which it shall certify to the said board. 

11. Exemption from Liability. Neither any of said super- 
intendents nor any other person legally participating in the 
execution of the provisions of this act shall be liable either 
civilly or criminally on account of said participation.

leave at least four inches of snow on the road. The expense 
shall be borne one half by the state and one half by the cities 
and towns through which said sections of trunk line and

petition, as provided in section 6 hereof, nor a certificate or 
security filed by the owner or operator as provided in section 
3, shall be referred to in any way, and shall not be any evi- 
dence of the negligence or due care of either party, at the 
trial of any action at law to recover damages.

required to furnish such security neglects or refuses to com- 
ply with the provisions of sections 3 and 4 hereof the com- 
missioner shall thereupon suspend his operator's license and 
the registration of any motor vehicles or trailers owned by

Whereas a new policy has been established recently by the 
state board of education extending the courses at the Ply- 
mouth normal school and the Keene normal school from two

principals in charge as presidents, all of which in effect estab- 
lishes these institutions as teacher colleges; and

portance in our educational system ; involves a relation of the

superintendents necessary for the maintenance of our public

such new members (subject to like confirmation) or dismiss 
such existing members thereof as may be necessary. Subject 
to like confirmation, the chief may promote or demote in 
rank any member of the force except as hereinbefore provided. 

The chief shall, under the police board, have precedence, 
command, control and direction of the deputy chief and all 
other police of the city, and shall cause the laws of the state 
and municipal ordinances to be executed and enforced within 
the city, and perform all other duties imposed upon him by

vote.

longed absence from or other inattention to duty, mental or 
physical incapacity, incompetency, crime, immorality, or mis- 
conduct in office, by affirmative vote on roll call of at least ten 
aldermen. Any other officer chosen by the board of alder- 
men may be removed by it at pleasure by majority vote ; any 
officer appointed by the mayor may be removed by him at 
pleasure by written order, and no approval of such order by 
the board of aldermen shall be required ; and any officer select-

chief engineer, a chief engineer shall be appointed by the fire 
board, subject to like confirmation. The removal under this 
section, with or without cause, of a person elected, appointed 
or otherwise chosen for a fixed term shall give him no right 
of action for breach of contract; and vacancies thereby oc- 
casioned in any office shall be filled in the same manner as if 
the vacancy had resulted from death or other cause. In case 
the fire board shall be equally divided upon any question that 
it may be called upon to determine, such question shall be 
determined by the board of aldermen by majority vote.
