            SECTION 5.               If any sentence, clause or section or any part of this Resolution is for any reason found to be unconstitutional, illegal or invalid, such unconstitutionality, illegality or invalidity shall not affect or impair any of the remaining provisions, sentences, clauses or sections or parts of this Resolution.  It is hereby declared as the intent of the Authority that this would have been enacted had such unconstitutional, illegal or invalid sentence, clause or section or part thereof not be included herein.
