BE it enacted, by the General Assembly of Maryland, That no member of
congress, or person holding an office of trust or profit under the
United
States, shall be capable of having a seat in the general assembly, or

state, or as elector of the senate, or of his
office held under this state as aforesaid, shall be void: Provided, that no person who is now, or may be at
the time when this act becomes part of the constitution, a member both of congress and of the legislature of
this state, or who now holds, or may hold at the time when this act becomes part of the constitution, an
office as aforesaid, both under this state and the United States, shall be affected by this act, if, within fifteen
days after the same shall become part of the constitution, he shall resign his seat in congress, or his office
held under the United States. And if this act shall be confirmed by the general assembly after the next
election of delegates, in the first session after such new election, according to the constitution and form of
government, that in such case this alteration and amendment of the constitution and form of government
shall constitute and be valid as part thereof, and every thing therein contained repugnant to or inconsistent
