cil of the County, and all references in the Constitution and laws of
this State to the Mayor of Baltimore and City Council of the City of
Baltimore or to the County Commissioners of the Counties, shall be
construed to refer to the Mayor of Baltimore and City Council of the
City of Baltimore and to the President and County Council herein
provided for whenever such construction would be reasonable. From
and after the adoption of a charter by the City of Baltimore, or any
County of this State, as hereinbefore provided, the Mayor of Balti-
more and City Council of the City of Baltimore or the County Council
of said County, subject to the Constitution and Public General Laws
of this State, shall have full power to enact local laws of said City
or County including the power to repeal or amend local laws of said
City or County enacted by the General Assembly, upon all matters
covered by the express powers granted as above provided; provided
that nothing herein contained shall be construed to authorize or
empower the County Council of any County in this State to enact laws
or regulations for any incorporated town, village, or municipality
in said County, on any matter covered by the powers granted to said
town, village, or municipality by the Act incorporating it, or any
subsequent Act or Acts amendatory thereto. Provided, however, that
the charters for the various Counties shall [provide] specify the
number of days, not to exceed forty-five, which may but need not be
consecutive, that the County Council of the Counties [shall not] may
sit [more than one month] in each year for the purpose of enacting
legislation for such Counties, and all legislation shall be enacted
[during the month] at the times so designated for that purpose in
the charter, and all laws and ordinances so enacted shall
be published once a week for three successive weeks in at
least one newspaper published in such Counties, so that the taxpayers
and citizens may have notice thereof. This provision shall not apply
to Baltimore City. All such local laws enacted by the Mayor of
Baltimore and City Council of the City of Baltimore or the Council
of the Counties as hereinbefore provided, shall be subject to the same
rules of interpretation as those now applicable to the Public Local
Laws of this State, except that in case of any conflict between said
local law and any Public General Law now or hereafter enacted the
Public General Law shall control.
SEC. 2. And be it further enacted, That the foregoing amend-
ment to Article XIA, title "Local Legislation", Section 3, hereby pro-

election to be held in November, 1956, be submitted to the qualified
voters of the State of Maryland for their adoption or rejection in
pursuance of the directions contained in Article XIV of the Constitu-
tion of Maryland, and at the said general election the vote on the
proposed amendment to the Constitution shall be by ballot, and upon
each ballot there shall be printed the words "For Constitutional
Amendment" and "Against Constitutional Amendment", as now pro-
vided by law, and immediately after said election due returns shall
be made to the Governor of the vote for and against said proposed
amendment, as directed by Article XIV of the Constitution and
further proceedings had in accordance with said Article XIV.
Approved April 25, 1955.
