Whenever a contract subject to the provisions of this article is awarded under a procedure which provides for competitive bidding, the bids shall be publicly opened at the time stated in the invitation for bids and the dollar amount of each bid shall be read. No bids shall be considered which have not been received at the place, and prior to the closing time for bids, stated in the invitation for bids.
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.
