§63-1-4. Effect of repeal on persons in office, and on
practitioners of professions and occupations.
All persons who, at the time such repeal takes effect, shall
hold any office under any of the acts hereby repealed, shall
continue to hold the same according to the tenure thereof, except
those offices which may have been abolished, and those as to which
a different provision is made by this code. Nor shall any person
who has been duly licensed or registered to practice any profession
or engage in any occupation before this code takes effect be
required to submit to further examination or take out a new license
or registration to practice such profession or engage in such
occupation under the provisions of this code, except where the
periodic renewal of such license or registration is required
hereunder and then only to the extent so required.
