Continuation of prior statutes.
The provisions of this
Act insofar as they are the same or substantially the same as those of any
prior statute, shall be construed as a continuation of such prior statute
and not as a new enactment.

or an Article or a Section of such an Act, which is continued in this Act,
such reference shall refer to the Act, Article, or Section thereof so continued
in this Act.
