I was reading an article titled “Pennylvania’s SORNA Update Spring 2018” written by Aaron Marcus Esq. as some of you know, he deals extensively with Megan’s Law issues.
He says in his article that the General Assembly CAN reenact an expired statute IF the re-enactment contains every single word of the previous expired statute. He doesn’t address what if they add every word and then ADD MORE words.
So I am confused as I thought once a statute expired, that’s it. There is no such thing as a re-enactment. Apparently, I was mistaken.
My question would be does adding every word of an expired statute to ACT 10 of 2018 AND then ADDING more words, does that make the new statute illegal?
