Explain why correcting the legislative drafting mistake, also known as “Scrivener’s Error” is a difficult process. How would you change Scrivener’s Error to more of a streamlined process? Would you propose statues or laws to identify the error(s) in order to reduce misinterpretation? Provide previous evidence showcasing the strict processes of correcting these so-called errors.
