are now prescribed or may hereafter be prescribed by rules or regu-
lations by the Court of Appeals or otherwise by law. One judge in
each of the first seven circuits shall constitute a quorum for the
transaction of any business; and the said judges, or any of them,
may hold special terms of their Courts, when in their discretion,
the business of the several counties renders such terms necessary.
All provisions of the Constitution of Maryland and all Acts of the
General Assembly relating to the Court of Appeals or any other
courts, and all rules heretofore adopted by the Court of Appeals,
not inconsistent with the provisions of the sections amended or
added by this amendment, shall remain in full force and effect un-
less and until amended or repealed by proper authority. All salaries
now prescribed by law for associate judges of the Circuit Courts
shall continue to apply to all judges (including chief judges) of the
Circuit Court. No member of the General Assembly at which either
of these amendments was proposed, or at which the number OR
SALARY of judges for any of the EIGHT circuits or for any of the
counties may be OR MAY HAVE BEEN increased or decreased by
the General Assembly from time to time, if otherwise qualified, shall
be ineligible for appointment or election as judge of the Court of
Appeals or any other court by reason of his membership in such
General Assembly.
In the event and to the extent of any inconsistency between the
provisions of any section amended or added by these amendments
and any of the other provisions of this Constitution or the provisions
of any existing law, the provisions of the sections amended or added
shall prevail, and such OTHER PROVISIONS SHALL BE REPEALED OR ABRO-
GATED to the extent of such inconsistency, except Section 35A of
Article III of this Constitution; provided, however, that in the event
of any inconsistency between the provisions of the sections thus
amended or added and any of the other provisions of THE SEC-
TIONS THUS AMENDED OR ADDED AND ANY OF THE
OTHER PROVISIONS OF this Constitution as amended by any
other amendments which may be adopted at the same time or times
as these amendments, i.e., at the election held in November, 1944, or
at the election held in November, 1954, OR AT THE ELECTION
HELD IN NOVEMBER, 1960, the changes made by these amend-
ments and all such other amendments to this Constitution shall all
be given effect.
SEC. 2. And be it further enacted, That the aforegoing section
hereby proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of this State
shall be, at the next general election, to be held in this State in the
year 1960, submitted to the legal and qualified voters thereof for
their adoption or rejection in pursuance of directions contained in
Article 14 of the Constitution of this State, and at the said general
election, the vote on the said proposed amendments shall be by
ballot, and upon each ballot there shall be printed the words "For
the Constitutional Amendment" and "Against the Constitutional
Amendment", as now prescribed 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 said Article
14 of the Constitution.
Approved April 28, 1959.
