§252. New legislation; incorporation in Revised Statutes; resolution of conflicting acts

A. At the close of each legislative session the Louisiana State Law Institute shall prepare printer's copy, either for a supplement to the Revised Statutes of 1950, or for a volume to be called "Louisiana Revised Statutes", containing the text of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950 as they may have been amended, and omitting therefrom or noting therein, those sections that have been repealed. There shall also be incorporated therein, in an appropriate place and classification, the text of all the new legislation of a general and public nature, assigning to these laws an appropriate Title, Chapter, and Section number, and indicating the source of the legislative acts from which they are taken.

B. When a conflict between two or more legislative acts affecting the same subject matter in the same provision of law cannot be resolved for the purpose of incorporating the text into the Revised Statutes, the Louisiana State Law Institute shall so notify the secretary of the Senate and the clerk of the House of Representatives prior to preparing the printer's copy. The secretary and the clerk shall certify jointly which of the conflicting legislative acts was enacted last and jointly shall direct the institute to incorporate into the Revised Statutes the text of the provision of law last enacted.

C. The Louisiana State Law Institute shall also prepare and attach to the printer's copy a list, by number and title only, of the local, special, and private acts enacted at that session of the legislature.
