Joint Legislative Council prefatory note: This bill was prepared for the Joint Legislative Council's Special Committee on the Recodification of Ch. 938, stats., the Juvenile Justice Code.
The special committee is directed to recodify ch. 938, stats., the Juvenile Justice Code. The special committee is instructed that the recodification may include a study of the possible reorganization of certain parts of the chapter to fit in a logical manner with the rest of the chapter, renumbering and retitling of certain sections and subsections, consolidating related provisions, modernizing language, resolving ambiguities in language, codifying court decisions, and making minor substantive changes.
The bill:
1. Reorganizes individual sections, or portions of sections, in ch. 938, stats., by combining them with other sections, dividing single sections into 2 or more sections, and internally reorganizing single sections.
2. Makes nonsubstantive editorial changes to modernize language and for consistency with current drafting style.
3. Revises section titles, where appropriate, and provides for subsection titles throughout the chapter.
4. Clarifies ambiguous language.
5. Makes substantive changes the special committee concluded are relatively noncontroversial.
The special committee explicitly intends that, unless expressly noted, the bill makes no substantive changes in the statutory provisions treated by this bill. Substantive changes in the bill are identified by Notes to the provisions substantively affected. If a question arises about the effect of any modification made by this bill, the special committee intends that the revisions in the bill be construed to have the same effect as the prior statutes.
