MARYLAND MANUAL 289
A HISTORY OF THE 1966 SPECIAL SESSION
OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
The General Assembly of Maryland met in Special Session on
March 30,1966.
The session was called for the main purpose of considering the
enactment of an enabling act for the imposition of income or payroll
taxes by Baltimore City or any county in the State. Such a bill was
enacted at this session along with a number of less important
measures.
A HISTORY OF THE 1967 REGULAR SESSION OF
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF MARYLAND
The General Assembly met in regular session on January 18, 1967.
The session adjourned on March 28, 1967.
A total of 1,866 bills were introduced in 1967, of which 715 were
Senate bills and 1,151 were House bills. Of the 715 Senate bills, 336
were passed by both Houses and of this latter number 324 were
signed by the Governor and 12 were vetoed. Of the 1,151 bills intro-
duced into the House, 453 were passed by both Houses and of this
latter number 436 were signed by the Governor and 17 were vetoed.
A total of 139 joint resolutions were introduced, 66 being in the
Senate and 73 in the House. Of these totals, 31 Senate joint reso-
lutions and 26 House joint resolutions were passed by both Houses.
The budget bill enacted at this session for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1968, amounted to approximately $1,070,000,000. The bond
construction bill passed at this session was for a total amount of
$48,900,700.
Among the most important laws enacted at the 1967 session were
the tax revision program for increasing payments to political sub-
divisions and for imposing a graduated income tax, legislation to
establish procedures for the Constitutional Convention of 1967, a
revision of the State Election Laws, the Susquehanna River Compact
for the states of New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, provisions
for additional bridges across the Chesapeake Bay and for a second
tunnel under Baltimore Harbor, procedures for the exercise of home
rule by code counties, a revision of the air pollution laws, and the
regulation of revolving credit.
Because of the impending Constitutional Convention only two pro-
posed constitutional amendments were adopted. They were for setting
up "quick-taking" procedures for condemnation in Anne Arundel and
Prince George's Counties. Both were made contingent upon a new
Constitution if proposed by the Constitutional Convention.
A HISTORY OF THE
1967 SPECIAL SESSION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
The General Assembly met in Special Session on June 22, 1967.
The Session was called to correct a constitutional error in the tax
revision program enacted earlier at the regular Session in 1967. This
was accomplished and the Special Session was adjourned on the
same day.
