(from Ch. 85, par. 1006)
Ratification of previous adoptions by reference.
Any municipality which has heretofore enacted a code or public record by
reference thereto shall not be required to re-enact such code or public
record by reason of this act, and all previous incorporations by reference
which would have been valid if this act had then been in effect, are hereby
ratified and declared effective, provided, however, that the requisite
number of copies are forthwith filed with the clerk of such municipality,
if they have not already been so filed.
