General Code Update Bill
Background information. During each interim the council,
as part of its duties relating to continuing statutory revision, prepares a general
code update bill for introduction during the next regular legislative session.
The purposes of the bill are to nonsubstantively codify laws that should be
included in previously enacted codes, appropriately renumber duplicate official
citations, correct enacted codes to conform the codes to the source law from which
they were derived, and revise codes or parts of codes enacted during the preceding
legislative session to incorporate enactments of that session.
The general code update bill being prepared for introduction during the 82nd
Legislature will include amendments, as necessary, to provisions of Title 2,
Estates Code; Titles 3, 4, and 6, Special District Local Laws Code; and the Transportation
and Natural Resources Codes. Those provisions were
revised by the 81st Legislature as part of the continuing statutory revision program,
and amendments will be made to reflect amendments by that legislature to the laws
from which those provisions were derived.
