County free libraries established pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 27151) of Division 20 of the Education Code; areas receiving county fire protection services pursuant to Section 25643 of the Government Code; and county road districts established pursuant to Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 1550) of Division 2 of the Streets and Highways Code, shall be considered “special districts” for all purposes of this chapter.
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.
