703-1-fy22

With the issuance of the 2021 book, the starting subsection in section 703 started at 703.01 instead of 703.00. This broke the references throughout the book. A section number was also skipped.

This change is editorial and changes the numbering back to 2019 book instead of chasing all the references throughout the 2021 book.
