    Sec. 40. Severability.
    (a) If any provision of this Act or its application to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity does not affect other provisions or applications of this Act that can be given effect without the invalid provision or application.
    (b) If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that the provisions of this Act and of the Escrow Act conflict and cannot be harmonized, then the provisions of the Escrow Act shall control.
    (c) If any Section, subsection, subdivision, paragraph, sentence, clause, or phrase of this Act (excluding the amendatory provisions of Section 300) causes the Escrow Act to no longer constitute a qualifying or model statute, as those terms are defined in the Master Settlement Agreement, then that portion of this Act shall not be valid.
