Default Dude I'm a published author sort of!!!

In my job, before I went back to tax collecting, I wrote legislative proposals for the department. One of my bills was to amend CUIC section 1755 & 1757 and to add CUIC section 1755.1. The biggest surprise is the legal department and the committees never changed a word of the code I wrote. It was originally 1755.5 and they changed it to 1755.1. But I'm good with that. It's not an exciting read and if you owe payroll taxes in California you may not be a fan of my new code section. But hey I'm a dyslexia former hairstylist; my former high school English teachers would be shocked as heck.
CA Codes (uic:1755-1758)

Good job Kat:

I'll just have to read it about six more times to figure out what it means.

I have one question. Why don't they put double line spacing, between major points, in those long paragraphs? It sure would make it easier to read.

Take care,
Mike

That's the great thing about writing code. You don't have to make sense or worry about grammar and punctuation.
