3. The repeal of any statute "including the repeal of any part of the
Code of Public General Laws or of the Code of Public Local Laws" shall
not have the effect to release or extinguish any penalty, forfeiture or lia-
bility incurred under such statute, unless the repealing act shall so ex-
pressly provide, and such statute shall be treated as still remaining in force
for the purpose of sustaining any proper action or prosecution for the
enforcement of such penalty, forfeiture or liability.
