(a) If any provision of this article or the application thereof shall for any reason
be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall
not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder of said article, but shall be confined
in its operation to the provision thereof directly involved in the controversy in
which such judgment shall have been rendered, and the applicability of such provision
to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby.
(b) If any provision of this article or the application thereof shall be made invalid
or inapplicable by reason of the failure of the Legislature to enact any statute therein
addressed or referred to, or by reason of the repeal or any other invalidation of
any statute therein addressed or referred to, such failure to reenact on such repeal
or invalidation of any such statute shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder
of the said article, but shall be confined in its operation to the provision thereof
directly involved with, pertaining to, addressing or referring to the said statute,
and the application of such provision with regard to other statutes or in other instances
not affected by any such invalid or repealed statute shall not be abrogated or diminished
in any way.
