The filing of a resolution pursuant to Section 27421, or of a petition pursuant to Section 27422, shall stay the effective creation of the special transit service district within the public agency or portion thereof included in the resolution or petition until the results of the required election are canvassed.
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.
