Highlight

The word 'or' is disjunctive in nature and ordinarily indicates an alternative between different things or actions. Terms or phrases separated by 'or' have separate and independent significance.
When the letter of the law is clear and free from ambiguity, a court need look no further than the statutory language, and it is neither necessary nor appropriate to delve into legislative history to determine legislative intent.
