#HalLAWeen Art: Severability

"The standard for determining the severability of an unconstitutional provision is well established: `Unless it is evident that the Legislature would not have enacted those provisions which are within its power, independently of that which is not, the invalid part may be dropped if what is left is fully operative as a law.'"
 -Alaska Airlines, Inc. v. Brock, 480 U.S. 678, 684 (1987), Google Scholar.
