Legistics
More Than One Sentence in a Section or Subsection

A section or subsection should normally consist of a single sentence. However, more than one sentence may be used when

  • (a) the additional sentence is subordinate to the first or otherwise deals with the same idea;
  • (b) making it into a separate subsection would put undue emphasis on it; and
  • (c) the section or subsection does not become too long.
