(1) Nothing in ORS 176.750 (“Energy resources” defined) to 176.815 (Cooperation with local governments) is intended as a delegation of legislative responsibility for the appropriation or authorization of expenditure of public funds, as provided in the Constitution and laws of this state.

(2) The powers vested in the Governor under ORS 176.750 (“Energy resources” defined) to 176.815 (Cooperation with local governments) are in addition to, and not in lieu of, emergency powers vested in the Governor under ORS chapter 401 or any other law of Oregon.

(3) It is the intent of the Legislative Assembly that if ORS 176.750 (“Energy resources” defined) to 176.815 (Cooperation with local governments) and 176.990 (Penalties) are held unconstitutional as applied to contracts executed before February 26, 1974, ORS 176.750 (“Energy resources” defined) to 176.815 (Cooperation with local governments) and 176.990 (Penalties) nevertheless are effective with respect to contracts executed on or after February 26, 1974, and with respect to renewals or extensions of existing contracts on or after February 26, 1974.
