Sec. § 0.023
Construction of reenacted, amended or revised laws as continuation of prior law; effect of reference to repealed law that is in substance reenacted.

The provisions of any law or statute which is reenacted, amended or revised, so far as they are the same as those of prior laws, shall be construed as a continuation of such laws and not as new enactments. If any provision of a law is repealed and in substance reenacted, a reference in any other law to the repealed provision shall be deemed to be a reference to the reenacted provision.
