Historical List
General Assembly Members

The following list of General Assembly sessions was derived from the official journals of the Assembly prior to 1776 and then from journals of the Senate and the House of Delegates. The initial date is that on which the assembly was called to begin, not necessarily the actual day that either house convened with a quorum. The ending date refers to the calendar day of adjournment, not the "legislative day" in those cases where that distinction was made.

The frequency with which the Maryland General Assembly meets in Annapolis is determined by the state constitution.[ 1 ] From 1790 to 1847, regular sessions were annual. From 1847 until 1949, they were biennial (every two years) and, from 1950 to the present, they have been annual. Calling special sessions is the discretionary constitutional responsibility of the governor. Special sessions can occur at any time.  See also additional notes
