(1) If any clause, sentence, paragraph or part of this chapter and ORS chapters 398 and 399 or the application thereof to any person or circumstances shall, for any reason, be adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder of this chapter and ORS chapters 398 and 399, and the application thereof to other persons or circumstances, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which judgment shall have been rendered and to the person or circumstance involved. It is hereby declared to be the legislative intent that this chapter and ORS chapters 398 and 399 would have been adopted had such invalid provisions not been included.

(2) In so far as the provisions of this chapter and ORS chapters 398 and 399 are inconsistent with the provisions of any other Act, general or special, or of any local law, the provisions of this chapter and ORS chapters 398 and 399 shall be controlling. [1961 c.454 §§3,4]
