HERBERT R. O'CONOR, GOVERNOR. 1973
SENATE BILL 564.
AN ACT to repeal Sections 37-38, of Article 1 of the Code of
Public Local Laws of Maryland (1930 Edition), title "Alle-
gany County", sub-title "Boundary Line", relating to the
election in 1906 as to the boundary line between Allegany
and Garrett Counties.
This bill provides for the repeal of Sections 37 and 38 of
Article 1 of the Code of Public Local Laws (Allegany County).
These sections relate to an election scheduled to have been held
in 1906 for the purpose of establishing the boundary line be-
tween Allegany and Garrett Counties. The Attorney General
has advised me that, according to the records in the office of
the Land Commissioner this election was never held. The
Attorney General has further advised me that the repeal of
these sections might cause serious difficulties with respect to
the existing boundary line between the two counties, and since
the law as it now stands does no harm, its repeal might give
rise to serious controversies. I believe that this matter should
receive serious study and be made the subject of legislation at
some future session of the General Assembly.
Under the circumstances, I feel that it would be unwise to
do other than veto this measure.
SENATE BILL 568.
AN ACT to repeal Sections 163-165A of Article 1 of the Code
of Public Local Laws of Maryland (1930 Edition), title
"Allegany County", sub-title "Election Districts", sub-head-
ings "Judges and Clerks", and "Advertisements", relating to
judges and clerks of election and notices and advertise-
ments as to elections.
This bill provides for the repeal of Sections 163 through
165A of Article 1 of the Code of Public Local Laws (Allegany
County). These sections relate to judges and clerks of elec-
tions and notices and advertisements relating to elections.
Reference to the Code of Public Local Laws discloses that these
sections relate also to Washington and Frederick Counties.
After a review of this bill, the Attorney General has sug-
gested the possibility of serious difficulties arising in the other
counties should the above numbered sections be repealed. I
feel that the matter should be studied more in detail, and that
the relation of this measure to the laws of Washington and
Frederick Counties and the state-wide election laws should be
