A petition, which may consist of any number of separate instruments, shall be filed with the secretary of the district, signed by registered voters residing within the boundaries of the area proposed to be annexed equal in number to at least 10 per centum of the number of such voters residing within the area so proposed to be annexed.
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.
