If a local agency fails to file the report required by Section 2325 by October 15, the Controller, in the succeeding fiscal year, shall reduce by 10 percent or five thousand dollars ($5,000), whichever is less, the payment he is required to make to such agency based on claims filed pursuant to Section 16113 of the Government Code.
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.
