saving clause

saving clause
In a statute, an exception of a special thing out of the general things mentioned in the statute. Ordinarily a restriction in a repealing act, which is intended to save rights, pending proceedings, penalties, etc., from the annihilation which would result from an unrestricted repeal. That provision in a statute which rescues the balance of the statute from a declaration of unconstitutionality if one or more clauses or parts are invalidated. It is sometimes referred to as the severability clause. Such clause continues in force the law repealed as to existing rights. Dade County v. Wiseheart, Fla.App., 198 So.2d 94, 97.
