      The repeal of any statute shall not have the effect to release or
    extinguish any penalty, forfeiture, or liability incurred under
    such statute, unless the repealing Act shall so expressly 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. The
    expiration of a temporary statute shall not have the effect to
    release or extinguish any penalty, forfeiture, or liability
    incurred under such statute, unless the temporary statute shall so
    expressly 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.
