Assuming the sections are enclosed in <section> tags (since you didn't say 
anything about what your markup is), like so in CSS2.1:

   section { border-bottom-style: solid; border-bottom-width: 2px }
   section + section { border-bottom: none; }

Or in CSS3 you can be more explicit:

   section { border-bottom-style: solid; border-bottom-width: 2px;
             border-bottom-color: initial }
   section + section { border-bottom: none; }
