This law applies to clarify a specific case in the Lex Arminia de edictis.

1. Due to the passing of potestas et imperium, when there is a change of governor [1] in a province, all of his provincial apparitores (such as scribae, legati, etc.) are automatically relieved from their duties. If the new governor [1] desires to keep a previous apparitor, he must re-issue an edictum nominating him or her.

2. Confirming lex Arminia de edictis, all provincial edicta are automatically revoked when there is a change of governor [1], and the new magistrate does not confirm them in his/her imperium.

3. When the term of governor [1] of a province is extended by the Senate, there is no need to re-issue the edicta of the previous year; the same magistrate is the issuer.

[1] The original version said "Propraetor or Proconsul". In fact, the constitution well mentions "governors" to be appointed by the senate at the head of Nova Roma provinces. Currently, the governors are called legati pro praetore, except for provinces ruled by a praetor or consul, former praetor or consul. In this case, the governor has the title of, for example, "praetor [name of the province at the Latin genitive case]". Italia, not been currently considered as a 'province', is ruled by a praefectus Italiae.
