    (d) The General Assembly finds and declares that:
        (1) This amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly
    
manifests the intention of the General Assembly to remove the repeal of this Section.
        (2) This Section was originally enacted to protect,
    
promote, and preserve the general welfare. Any construction of this Section that results in the repeal of this Section on December 31, 2016 would be inconsistent with the manifest intent of the General Assembly and repugnant to the context of this Code.
    It is hereby declared to have been the intent of the General Assembly that this Section not be subject to repeal on December 31, 2016.
    This Section shall be deemed to have been in continuous effect since August 3, 2012 (the effective date of Public Act 97-895), and it shall continue to be in effect henceforward until it is otherwise lawfully repealed. All previously enacted amendments to this Section taking effect on or after December 31, 2016, are hereby validated.
    All actions taken in reliance on or pursuant to this Section in the procurement of artistic or musical services are hereby validated.
    In order to ensure the continuing effectiveness of this Section, it is set forth in full and re-enacted by this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly. This re-enactment is intended as a continuation of this Section. It is not intended to supersede any amendment to this Section that is enacted by the 100th General Assembly.
    In this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly, the base text of this Section is set forth as amended by Public Act 98-1076. Striking and underscoring is used only to show changes being made to the base text.
    This Section applies to all procurements made on or before the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 100th General Assembly.
