      RELATES TO: KRS Chapter 318


      NECESSITY, FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: The office is directed by KRS 318.130 through the State Plumbing Code Committee to adopt and put into effect a State Plumbing Code. This administrative regulation relates to the sovereignty of each section as it relates to other sections of the code. As KRS 446.090 provides for severability of statutes, so does this administrative regulation provide for the severability of plumbing code provisions.


      Section 1. Sections Declared Independent. If any part of this code shall be held unconstitutional, the remaining parts shall remain in force, unless the remaining parts are so essentially and inseparably connected with and dependent upon the unconstitutional part that it is apparent that the General Assembly or the office would not have enacted the remaining parts without the unconstitutional part, or unless the remaining parts, standing alone, are incomplete and incapable of being executed in accordance with the intent of the General Assembly.
