"Prior law"
    
Sec. 1. As used in this chapter, "prior law" refers to the statutes concerning state police, civil defense, emergency management, military affairs, veterans affairs, and war memorials that are repealed or amended in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly as the statutes existed before the effective date of the applicable or corresponding provision of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly.

IC 10-10-1-2
Purpose of recodification
    
Sec. 2. The purpose of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly is to recodify prior law in a style that is clear, concise, and easy to interpret and apply. Except to the extent that:
        (1) the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly is amended to reflect the changes made in a provision of another bill that adds to, amends, or repeals a provision in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly; or
        (2) the minutes of meetings of the code revision commission during 2002 expressly indicate a different purpose;
the substantive operation and effect of the prior law continue uninterrupted as if the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly had not been enacted.
As added by P.L.2-2003, SEC.1.

IC 10-10-1-3

IC 10-10-1-4

        (1) any rights or liabilities accrued;         (2) any penalties incurred;
        (3) any violations committed;
        (4) any proceedings begun;
        (5) any bonds, notes, loans, or other forms of indebtedness issued, incurred, or made;
        (6) any tax levies made or authorized;
        (7) any funds established;
        (8) any patents issued;
        (9) the validity, continuation, or termination of any contracts, easements, or leases executed;
        (10) the validity, continuation, scope, termination, suspension, or revocation of:
            (A) permits;
            (B) licenses;
            (C) certificates of registration;
            (D) grants of authority; or
            (E) limitations of authority; or
        (11) the validity of court decisions entered regarding the constitutionality of any provision of the prior law;
before the effective date of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly (July 1, 2003). Those rights, liabilities, penalties, violations, proceedings, bonds, notes, loans, other forms of indebtedness, tax levies, funds, patents, contracts, easements, leases, permits, licenses, certificates of registration, grants of authority, and limitations of authority continue and shall be imposed and enforced under prior law as if the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly had not been enacted.
    (b) The recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly does not:
        (1) extend or cause to expire a permit, license, certificate of registration, or other grant or limitation of authority; or
        (2) in any way affect the validity, scope, or status of a license, permit, certificate of registration, or other grant or limitation of authority;
issued under the prior law.
    (c) The recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly does not affect the revocation, limitation, or suspension of a permit, license, certificate of registration, or other grant or limitation of authority based in whole or in part on violations of the prior law or the rules adopted under the prior law.

IC 10-10-1-5

Recodification of prior law
    
Sec. 5. The recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly shall be construed as a recodification of prior law. Except as provided in section 2(1) and 2(2) of this chapter, if the literal meaning of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly (including a literal application of an

erroneous change to an internal reference) would result in a substantive change in the prior law, the difference shall be construed as a typographical, spelling, or other clerical error that must be corrected by:
        (1) inserting, deleting, or substituting words, punctuation, or other matters of style in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly; or
        (2) using any other rule of statutory construction;
as necessary or appropriate to apply the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly in a manner that does not result in a substantive change in the law. The principle of statutory construction that a court must apply the literal meaning of an act if the literal meaning of the act is unambiguous does not apply to the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly to the extent that the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly is not substantively identical to the prior law.
As added by P.L.2-2003, SEC.1.

IC 10-10-1-6
References to repealed statutes
    
Sec. 6. Subject to section 9 of this chapter, a reference in a statute or rule to a statute that is repealed and replaced in the same or a different form in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly shall be treated after the effective date of the new provision as a reference to the new provision.
As added by P.L.2-2003, SEC.1.

IC 10-10-1-7
References to citations
    
Sec. 7. A citation reference in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly to another provision of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly shall be treated as including a reference to the provision of prior law that is substantively equivalent to the provision of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly that is referred to by the citation reference.
As added by P.L.2-2003, SEC.1.

IC 10-10-1-8

References to prior rules
    
Sec. 8. (a) As used in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly, a reference to rules adopted under any provision of this title or under any other provision of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly refers to either:
        (1) rules adopted under the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly; or
        (2) rules adopted under the prior law until those rules have been amended, repealed, or superseded.     (b) Rules adopted under the prior law continue in effect after June 30, 2003, until the rules are amended, repealed, or suspended.
As added by P.L.2-2003, SEC.1.

IC 10-10-1-9
References to prior law
    
Sec. 9. (a) A reference in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly to a citation in the prior law before its repeal is added in certain sections of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly only as an aid to the reader.
    (b) The inclusion or omission in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly of a reference to a citation in the prior law before its repeal does not affect:
        (1) any rights or liabilities accrued;
        (2) any penalties incurred;
        (3) any violations committed;
        (4) any proceedings begun;
        (5) any bonds, notes, loans, or other forms of indebtedness issued, incurred, or made;

            (A) permits;
            (B) licenses;
            (C) certificates of registration;
            (D) grants of authority; or
            (E) limitations of authority; or
        (11) the validity of court decisions entered regarding the constitutionality of any provision of the prior law;
before the effective date of the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly (July 1, 2003). Those rights, liabilities, penalties, violations, proceedings, bonds, notes, loans, other forms of indebtedness, tax levies, funds, patents, contracts, easements, leases, permits, licenses, certificates of registration, grants of authority, and limitations of authority continue and shall be imposed and enforced under prior law as if the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly had not been enacted.
    (c) The inclusion or omission in the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly of a citation to a provision in the prior law does not affect the use of a prior conviction, violation, or noncompliance under the prior law as the basis for revocation of a license, permit, certificate of registration, or other grant of authority under the recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly, as necessary or appropriate to apply the

recodification act of the 2003 regular session of the general assembly in a manner that does not result in a substantive change in the law.
