(a) Consistent with the Charter and applicable State and federal law, this Chapter 21 shall not apply to the extent its requirements would conflict with those laws or otherwise interfere with the discharge of functions placed under the direct jurisdiction of a department by the Charter. Nothing in this Chapter shall be interpreted or applied so as to create any requirement, power, or duty in conflict with any State or federal law.
(b) If any section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase, or word of this Chapter 21, or any application thereof to any person or circumstance, is held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a decision of a court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions or applications of this Chapter. The People of San Francisco hereby declare that they would have adopted this Chapter and each and every section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase, and word not declared invalid or unconstitutional without regard to whether any other portion of this Chapter or application thereof would be subsequently declared invalid or unconstitutional.
(c) The Board of Supervisors may amend this Chapter 21 by ordinance if the amendment furthers the purposes of this Chapter and to reflect changes in state law.
