What if there was another law that required them to be registered? It seems like the law states the circumstances under which they MUST register, but not the circumstances that allow them to be exempt from registering.
Thank you Dave, I see your reasoning. It appears that I interpreted the first sentence differently. I thought it was more or less explaining one part of the law, but I see based on the way it is phrased "The law ... is" does seem to imply that "the following" is the entirety of the law in the city of Weston. So based on the way it's phrased, there are absolutely 0 other laws concerning campaign contributions in this town, besides that one very specific tenant. Would you say that is accurate?
Yeah, you've got it!
If they wanted to leave open the possibility of other laws, they'd say something like "Part of the law of Weston..." or "One of the laws of Weston..."
Saying that "The law is as follows..." is what seals it.
Awesome, thanks! This has helped a lot, because I have now noticed a trend that this is one of a few questions (such as the violent/nonviolent inmates one) where I have undervalued the power of "the [insert noun]". It seems important to note that this is actually a very powerful statement similar to saying "the only" or "all of the" or "the entirety of" etc.
Yep, you've got it. It's not by accident that I put the lesson on this language in the very first video on LR.
