SECTION 1. BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF
MARYLAND, (Three-fifths of all the members elected to each of the
two Houses concurring), That it be proposed that the Constitution
of Maryland read as follows:
Article IV - Judiciary Department
10.
(A) The Clerks of the several Courts, created, or continued
by this Constitution, shall have charge and custody of the
records and other papers, shall perform all the duties[, and be
allowed the fees,] which appertain to their several offices, as
the same now are, or may hereafter be regulated by Law. And the
office and business of said Clerks, in all their departments,
shall be subject to the visitorial power of the Judges of their
respective Courts, who shall exercise the same, from time to
time, so as to insure the faithful performance of the duties of
said officers; and it shall be the duty of the Judges of said
Courts respectively, to make, from time to time, such rules and
regulations as may be necessary and proper for the government of
said Clerks, and for the performance of the duties of their
offices, which shall have the force of Law until repealed, or
modified by the General Assembly.
(B) THE OFFICES OF THE CLERKS SHALL BE FUNDED THROUGH THE
STATE BUDGET. ALL FEES, COMMISSIONS, OR OTHER REVENUES
ESTABLISHED BY LAW FOR THESE OFFICES SHALL BE STATE REVENUES,
UNLESS PROVIDED OTHERWISE BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
SECTION 2. AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That the General
Assembly determines that the amendment to the Constitution of
Maryland proposed by this Act affects multiple jurisdictions and
that the provisions of Article XIV, Section 1 of the Constitution
concerning local approval of constitutional amendments do not
apply.
SECTION 3. AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED, That the aforegoing
section proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of Maryland
shall be submitted to the legal and qualified voters of this
State at the next general election to be held in November, 1986
for their adoption or rejection in pursuance of directions
contained in Article XIV of the Constitution of this State. At
that general election, the vote on this proposed amendment to the
Constitution shall be by ballot, and upon each ballot there shall
be printed the words "For the Constitutional Amendments" and
"Against the Constitutional Amendments," as now provided by law.
Immediately after the election, all returns shall be made to the
Governor of the vote for and against the proposed amendment, as
directed by Article XIV of the Constitution, and further
proceedings had in accordance with Article XIV.
Approved May 21, 1986.
