SECTION 5. Section 101.82 of the Revised Code as amended by this act is subject to the referendum.

If, however, a referendum petition is filed against the section as amended, the section as amended, unless rejected at the referendum, takes effect at the earliest time permitted by law.

SECTION 6. The uncodified sections of law contained in this act, and the items of law of which the uncodified sections of law contained in this act are composed, are not subject to the referendum. Therefore, under Ohio Constitution, Article II, Section 1d and section 1.471 of the Revised Code, the uncodified sections of law contained in this act, and the items of law of which the uncodified sections of law contained in this act are composed, go into immediate effect when this act becomes law.

SECTION 7. An item that composes the whole or part of an uncodified section contained in this act has no effect after June 30, 2003, unless its context clearly indicates otherwise.

SECTION 8. If any item of law that constitutes the whole or part of a codified or uncodified section of law contained in this act, or if any application of any item of law that constitutes the whole or part of a codified or uncodified section of law contained in this act, is held invalid, the invalidity does not affect other items of law or applications of items of law that can be given effect without the invalid item of law or application. To this end, the items of law of which the codified and uncodified sections of law contained in this act are composed, and their applications, are independent and severable.
