“Costs mandated by the voters” means any increased costs expressly mandated upon a local agency or school district after September 2, 1975, by any statute or any amendment to the State Constitution adopted or enacted pursuant to the approval of a statewide ballot measure by the voters. “Costs mandated by the voters” does not include costs which are specifically reimbursed or funded by the terms of such ballot measure.
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.
