in pari materia
In relation to the same matter, subject, or object. Winston v State, 186 Ga 573, 198 SE 667, 118 ALR 719. Statutes which relate to the same thing or to the same subject or object are in pari materia, although they were enacted at different times and it is a fundamental rule of statutory construction that such statutes should be construed together for the purpose of learning and giving effect to the legislative intention. 1 Am J2d Admin L § 40; 50 Am J1st Stat § 348.
