Except as provided in this article, the provisions of this division shall become effective on January 1, 2003, and shall become operative on December 31, 2004. However, the commissioner shall have the power and authority to implement the provisions of this division prior to December 31, 2004.
The legislature occasionally skips outline levels.
(3) A person may apply [...]
(4)(a) A person petitioning for relief [...]
In this example, (3), (4),
and (4)(a) are all outline levels, but
omitted by its authors. It's only implied. This presents an
interesting challenge when laying out the text. We've
decided to display a blank section with this note, in order
to aide readability.
