The Department of Legislative Reference was originally created by
Chapter 565, Acts of 1906, to serve the City of Baltimore; the scope
of the Department was enlarged to serve the State as well by Chapter
474, Acts of 1916. By Chapter 453, Acts of 1965, the Department was
transferred to the Legislative Department. The Department collects,
compiles, and indexes information on all questions of proposed legisla-
tion. It investigates and reports on the laws of Maryland and other
states at the request of the Governor, any committee or member of the
General Assembly, or any State agency. At the request of a member of
the General Assembly, the Department prepares or aids in the drafting
of any law or resolution. During sessions of the General Assembly,
the Department maintains offices in the State House at Annapolis.
Each department of the State government must transmit to the
Department of Legislative Reference at least two copies of each of
its reports, which are used for exchange and reference purposes. The
Department keeps a complete index and a complete file on all bills
introduced in the General Assembly from 1908 to the present. It also
keeps copies of the codes and laws of other states, and it maintains
a library of books, pamphlets, reports, periodicals, and clippings on
matters of current public and political interest. The Department also
has supervision of the Archives of Baltimore (Code 1957, Art. 41, sees.
140-44).
