to bills not to be construed as expressing legislative

intent.

Chapter, article or section headings, headlines or headnotes

of any act of the Legislature, whether in the act at the time of

passage or inserted by the clerk of the House of Delegates in

editing, compiling and publishing the acts of the Legislature, are

hereby declared to be mere catchwords and shall not be deemed or

construed to be titles of such chapters, articles or sections, or

as any part thereof, or as indicating or expressing legislative

intent or purpose.

Abstracts of bills or of changes proposed in existing

statutes, explanatory notes and declarations of purpose

accompanying bills at the time of introduction in the Legislature

or appended or attached thereto after introduction, and included

with copies of such bills printed or otherwise reproduced by the

Legislature or either house thereof, are hereby declared not to be

a part of such bills or of reports of committees thereon, and shall

not be construed or interpreted as indicating or expressing

legislative intent.
