   10  other state, territory, or country of bribery, forgery, perjury,
   11  larceny, or any other offense that is a felony in this state or
   12  which if it had been committed in this state would be a felony,

   16  rights pursuant to s. 4., Art. VI of the State Constitution and
   17  s. 98.0751 for a person who has completed all terms of sentence
   18  for a felony conviction for an offense other than murder or a
   19  felony sexual offense.
   20         Section 6. If any provision of this act or an act passed by
   21  the Legislature relating to the implementation of s. 4, Article
   22  VI of the State Constitution is held to be invalid, the
   23  invalidity does not affect the provisions of this act which can
   24  be given effect without the invalid provision or application,
   25  and to this end this act is severable.
