EDITOR’S NOTE: This emergency action expired before being superseded by a permanent action. Upon expiration of an emergency amendatory action, the last prior permanent text is reinstated. Therefore, on 7-15-03 (after the 7-14-03 expiration of the emergency action), the text of Section 650:1-3-4 reverted back to the permanent text that was effective prior to enactment of the emergency action on 9-9-02, as was last published in the 2001 Edition of the OAC, and remained as such until amended by permanent action on 8-11-03.
