Acts ch. 136, sec. 6 had a citation to &quot;Sections 6 to 11 of this Act&quot; in the introductory clause and <br>subsection (13) of this statute, it is clear that &quot;Sections 6 [this statute] to 10 [codified <br>as KRS 205.5625] of this Act&quot; was intended, since there was no Section 11 in the Page 2 of 2 enacted version.
