Consolidating Statute Law and Legal Definition
Consolidating statute is a statute that collects the legislative provisions on a particular topic and embodies them in a single statute, often with minor amendments and drafting improvements. The courts generally presume that a consolidating statute leaves prior caselaw intact.
A consolidating statute re-enacts and repeals particular legal subject matter which was previously contained in several different statutes. Its purpose is to state the combined effect of different statutes and so simplify the presentation of the law.
