If any part, section, subsection, paragraph, sentence, clause, phrase, or item of this act or the application thereof to any person or circumstance is for any reason declared unconstitutional, such decisions shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this act which shall remain in force as if such act had been passed with the unconstitutional part, section, subsection, paragraph, sentence, clause, phrase, item or such application thereof eliminated; and the General Assembly hereby declares that it would have passed this act if such unconstitutional part, section, subsection, paragraph, sentence, clause, phrase, or item had not been included herein, or if such application had not been made.
