Obsolete Reporting Requirements - Study N-50

    Statutes requiring a government agency to issue a report are common. While many such statutes require ongoing reporting, a large number require a single report, to be prepared by a specified date. Once the required report has been prepared, the provision requiring that report is obsolete. Obsolete provisions of this type clutter the codes without serving a useful purpose. The Legislature occasionally cleans out these type of obsolete provisions.
    The Law Revision Commission recommends the deletion of a number of obsolete reporting requirements from the codes. The Commission's recommendation would be implemented by SB 111 (Knight). SB 111 was introduced in 2003 but was made into a two-year bill, due to procedural delays. It was amended in January 2004 to conform to legislation enacted in 2003.
