I think so, because this passage refers to sections 7 and A. Double
section signs (or 'ss') are a common device for citation of multiple
sections in legal texts. Correct usage seems to be described in "The
Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation" (rule 3.4). I am still
searching for a copy of this or a similar book to quote from, however.
Anyway, the passage you are referring to does not employ even a single
section sign, which is at variance with the style elsewhere in the
