The provisions of this Chapter are severable, and it is the intention to
confer the whole or any part of the powers herein provided for. If any clause,
section or provision of this Chapter shall be declared unconstitutional or
invalid for any reason or cause, the remaining portion of this Chapter shall be
in full force and effect and be valid as if such invalid portion thereof had not
been incorporated herein. It is hereby declared to be the legislative intent
that this Chapter would have been adopted had such an unconstitutional provision
not been included herein.
