The Legislature finds and declares that the current civil penalty structure for facilities licensed by the State Department of Social Services is insufficient to ensure the health and safety of those in care. It is the intent of the Legislature to comprehensively increase these penalties for all facilities in subsequent legislation, with particular emphasis on penalties for violations that result in serious injury or death.
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.
