hodgepodge act. A statute that deals with incongruous subjects.
¡°Hodge-Podge Act…. Such acts, besides being evident proofs of the ignorance of the makers of them, or of their want of good faith, are calculated to create a confusion which is highly prejudicial to the interests of justice…. In many states bills, except general appropriation bills, can contain but one subject, which must be expressed in the title.¡± 1 John Bouvier, Bouvier’s Law Dictionary 1444 (8th ed. 1914).
