Two things come to mind: (1) virtually every bill will have (or should have) a severability clause, which says something to the effect of "should any provision or clause of this law be found unconstitutional or unenforceable, it shall be severed, leaving all remaining clauses intact;" and (2) if they're amending the bill, delaying it, or what have you, that will still need to go through some legislative process. Exactly what? I'm not sure.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
