Military and emergency laws; obsolete provisions. Repeals provisions of Title 44 deemed obsolete by the Code Commission. Provisions related to the Naval Militia are repealed as no evidence of the existence of the Naval Militia in Virginia can be found. The bill repeals other provisions related to ancient privileges retained by the Corps, authority of the Adjunct General to adopt a seal, provision of health insurance that is supplied elsewhere, and use of armories. An unused section requiring a loyalty oath by persons employed or associated with an emergency services organization is repealed. Also repealed are several wartime-specific provisions enacted during World War II. These provisions deal with air raid precautions, issuing agents for the sale of obligations of the United States, health and sanitation rules, acquisition of motor vehicle tires, and a 1944 provision regarding powers of attorney and agency agreements that expired six months after the end of World War II.
