Article XIV - amendments to the Constitution
1.
The General Asseibly may propose Amendments to this
Constitution; provided that each Amendment shall be embraced
in a separate bill, embodying the Article or Section, as the
same will stand when amended and passed by three-fifths of
all the members elected to each of the two Houses, by yeas
and nays, to be entered on the Journals with the proposed
Amendment. The requirement in this section that an
amendment proposed by the General Assembly shall be embraced
in a separate bill shall not be construed or applied to
prevent the General Assembly from (1) proposing in one bill
a series of amendments to the Constitution of Maryland for
the general purpose of removing or correcting constitutional
provisions which are obsolete, inaccurate, invalid,
unconstitutional, or duplicative; or (2) embodying in a
single Constitutional amendment one or more Articles of the
Constitution so long as that Constitutional amendment
embraces only a single subject. The bill or bills proposing
amendment or amendments shall be PUBLICIZED, EITHER BY
PUBLISHING, [published] by order of the Governor, in at
least two newspapers, in each County, where so many may be
published, and where not more than one may be published,
then in that newspaper, and in three newspapers published in
the City of Baltimore, once a week for four weeks
