Maine Revised Statutes

§3282. Provisions severable

The provisions of chapters 855, 855-A, 855-B, 855-C and 855-D are severable and, if any of the provisions shall be held unconstitutional by any court of competent jurisdiction, the decision of such court shall not affect nor impair any of the remaining provisions. If any of the provisions of said chapters shall be in violation of the provisions of the Federal Social Security Act as in effect on April 1, 1974, such provision shall be null and void and the department shall, in that event, take such action as is consistent with the intent of this Act and as is necessary to continue participation by the State of Maine in the program authorized by Title XVI of the United States Social Security Act, as amended. If any of the provisions of this Act shall be in violation of any amendment to the Social Security Act which shall take effect subsequent to April 1, 1974, the department shall recommend to the Legislature legislation which is necessary or desirable to conform the laws of the State to such amendments.
