An Act construction of act in case of invalidity of any provision.
 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              If any provision of the Massachusetts liquor control act (Chapter 138), or its application to any person or circumstance, is determined by a court to be invalid or unconstitutional, the remaining provisions shall be construed in accordance with the intent of the legislature to further limit rather than to expand commerce in alcoholic liquor and to enhance strict regulatory control over taxation, distribution and sale of alcoholic liquor through the three-tier regulatory system imposed by the Massachusetts liquor control act upon all alcoholic liquor and cereal malt beverages.
