Hierarchical Applicability of Legislation
Standing legislation applies to all people within the scope of that
legislature, and constrains legislation made by any legislature with a
scope contained by the scope of the legislature which created the
legislation. The legislation of a particular legislature does not
constrain or apply to legislation created by a legislature whose scope
contains and is larger than, or does not overlap with, the scope of
the particular legislature. A particular legislature must, therefore,
amend or repeal statutes which are rendered inconsistent by the passage
of a statute created by a legislature whose scope is larger than and
contains the scope of the particular legislature.
