What is unique about the format is that the document is optimized for portable tablet devices:
· From the Table of Contents, you can click on the statute name or number and you’ll jump to the statutory text
· From any page with the statutory text, you have two navigation options (in addition to simply scrolling as usual)Click on the words “Stafford Act” at the top, you’ll return to the Table of Contents page.
· Click on the words “Stafford Act” at the top, you’ll return to the Table of Contents page.
· Click on the Title # at the top, you’ll be returned to the start of that Title in the document (i.e., if you’re in Section 408, click “Title IV” and you’ll jump back to Section 401).
