227,646 Section 646. 144.60 (title) and (1) of the statutes are repealed.
Note: This section repeals the "short title" of the hazardous waste management statutes. The repealed provision is as follows:
"144.60 (1) Title. Sections 144.60 to 144.74 shall be known and may be cited as the "Hazardous Waste Management Act"."
The use of short titles is an obsolete drafting style. A short title is entirely nonsubstantive and, therefore, adds nothing to the management statutes. Users of these statutes may continue to refer to them as the "hazardous waste management act" or by any other name that seems appropriate.
