Section 11-65-47

Applicability of chapter; severability of provisions.

Insofar as the provisions of this chapter may be inconsistent with the provisions of any other law concerning activities and actions authorized by this chapter, the provisions of this chapter shall control, it being specifically declared that any other provisions of existing law that prohibit or regulate horse racing or greyhound racing and gambling or pari-mutuel wagering thereon shall not be applicable to any activities or actions authorized by and regulated pursuant to the provisions of this chapter.

The provisions of this chapter are expressly declared to be severable. If any provision of this chapter shall be adjudged to be invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction (including, without limitation thereto, any particular allocation of net commission revenues or other provision which, if not severed from this chapter, would cause it to be a local act in violation of any constitutional limitation or condition applicable to local acts), such provision shall be severed from this chapter in order to effectuate the legislative intent that such judgment shall not affect, impair, or invalidate the remainder of this chapter, and the operation of such judgment shall be limited to the provision thereof directly involved in the action in which such judgment shall have been rendered.
