The 2 repeal hereafter or by this chapter of any provision of 3 a statute, which repeals any provision of a prior statute, 4 does not revive such prior provision, The repeal here5 after or by this chapter of any provision of a 6 statute, which amends provision of a prior 7 statute, leaves such prior provision in force unless 8 the amendatory statute be a substantial re-enact9 ment of the statute amended. The repeal of a statute 10 or part thereof shall not affect or impair any act done 11 or right accruing, accrued or acquired, or liability, 12 penalty, forfeiture or punishment incurred prior to the 13 time such repeal takes effect, but the same may be 14 asserted, enforced, prosecuted or inflicted, as fully and 15 to the same extent as if such repeal had not been 16 effected; and all actions and proceedings, civil or 17 criminal, commenced under or by virtue of any pro18 vision of a statute so repealed, and pending immediately 19 prior to the taking effect of such repeal, may be prose20 cuted and defended to final effect in the same manner as 21 they might if such provisions were not so repealed.
