Helpful references to both the Pennsylvania and related federal provisions are provided throughout for those who wish to more fully examine explanations and text of the applicable law. Also, detailed Tables of Contents, Law and Regulations Finding Lists, a Topical Index, and an organized presentation of the content combine to make pinpointing critical information quick and easy.
