The board may confer, in this State or elsewhere, either as a board, individually, or through its staff, with officers or employees of this State, its political subdivisions, other states, their political subdivisions, or the United States, or such other persons as may be of assistance to the board in its work.
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.
