(7) If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that the provisions of this chapter and of the Idaho tobacco master settlement agreement act conflict and cannot be harmonized, then such provisions of the Idaho tobacco master settlement agreement act, chapter 78, title 39, Idaho Code, shall control. If any section, subsection, subdivision, paragraph, sentence, clause or phrase of this chapter causes the Idaho tobacco master settlement agreement 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 chapter shall not be valid. If any section, subsection, subdivision, paragraph, sentence, clause or phrase of this chapter is for any reason held to be invalid, unlawful or unconstitutional, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this chapter or any part thereof.
