Occasionally the Legislature passes a law which is repealed "by its own terms" when it is enacted. Such is the case with Education Code section 49414.7, which authorized nonmedical employees to provide medical assistance to pupils who suffer from seizures due to epilepsy. Education Code section 49414.7 was passed in 2011. This statute remains in effect until January 1, 2017 unless the Legislature extends this statute.
