N.Y. Navigation Law Section 202
Application and saving clause

Any work or proceeding initiated under any existing law which is repealed through the enactment of this chapter shall be continued legally to its termination and conclusion subject to the provisions of and in accordance with the procedure prescribed by such law. It is the intent that upon the enactment of this chapter into law all proceedings undertaken thereafter relative to the navigable waters of the state, as defined in this chapter, shall be administered under the authority of and by the provisions contained in this chapter. Upon all waters where the United States authorities have established active control of navigation, any part of this chapter which is contrary to or in conflict with the United States navigation law, or with regulations issued pursuant thereto, shall be considered inoperative and the pertinent part of the United States law or regulation shall apply. It is the intent upon enactment of this chapter that no provision hereof shall affect or impair in any manner whatsoever any provision of chapter two hundred eighty-five of the laws of nineteen hundred forty. If any clause, sentence, paragraph or part of this chapter shall, for any reason be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder thereof but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph or part thereof, directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment shall have been rendered. Nothing contained in this chapter shall be construed to abridge the terms of office of the board of commissioners of pilots in the city of New York; nor to limit or restrict the powers of such board under article six, nor to confer a power or impose a duty upon the commissioner relating thereto.
