HISTORY: 141 v H 349 (Eff 3-6-86); 148 v S 179, § 3 (Eff 1-1-2002); 149 v S 3. Eff 1-1-2002; 150 v S 5, § 1, eff. 7-31-03.
 

The provisions of § 7 of S.B. 5 (150 v  - ) read as follows: 

SECTION 7. (A) Section 2919.24 of the Revised Code is presented in Section 1 of this act as a composite of the section as amended by Am. Sub. S.B. 3 of the 124th General Assembly and Am. Sub. S.B. 179 of the 123rd General Assembly. The General Assembly, applying the principle stated in division (B) of section 1.52 of the Revised Code that amendments are to be harmonized if reasonably capable of simultaneous operation, finds that the composites are the resulting versions of the sections in effect prior to the effective date of the sections as presented in Section 1 of this act. 

 

Effect of Amendments

S.B. 5, Acts 2003, effective July 31, 2003, in (A)(3), inserted "and, if applicable, to send a notice of intent to reside," and made minor stylistic changes.
