308 MARYLAND MANUAL [Art. 2, Sec. 18]

which shall have passed the House of Delegates and the
Senate, shall before it becomes a Law, be presented to the
Governor of the State; if he approve, he shall sign it; but
if not, he shall return it, with his objections, to the House
in which it originated, which House shall enter the objec-
tions at large on its Journal, and proceed to reconsider the
bill; if after such reconsideration, three-fifths of the mem-
bers elected to that House shall pass the bill, it shall be sent
with the objections to the other House, by which it shall
likewise be reconsidered, and if passed by three-fifths of the
members elected to that House, it shall become a Law; but in
all such cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined
by yeas and nays; and the names of the persons voting for
and against the bill shall be entered on the Journal of each
House respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the
Governor within six days (Sundays excepted), after it shall
have been presented to him, the same shall be a Law in like
manner as if he signed it; unless the General Assembly
shall, by adjournment prevent its return, in which case it
shall not be a Law. The Governor shall have power to dis-
approve of any item or items of any bills making appropria-
tions of money, embracing distinct items, and the part or
parts of the bill approved shall be the law, and the item or
items of appropriations disapproved shall be void, unless
repassed according to the rules or limitations prescribed for
the passage of other bills over the Executive veto1.

SEC. 18. It shall be the duty of the Governor, semi-
annually (and oftener, if he deem it expedient) to examine
under oath the Treasurer and Comptroller of the State on
all matters pertaining to their respective offices; and inspect
and review their Bank and other Account Books.

SEC. 19. He shall, from time to time, inform the Legis-
lature of the condition of the State and recommend to their
consideration such measures as he may judge necessary
and expedient.

SEC. 20. He shall have power to grant reprieves and
pardons, except in cases of impeachment, and in cases, in
which he is prohibited by other Articles of this Constitu-
tion ; and to remit fines and forfeitures for offences against
the State; but shall not remit the principal or interest of
any debt due the State, except in cases of fines and for-
feitures; and before granting a nolle prosequi, or pardon,

'Thus amended by Chapter 194, Acts of 1890, ratified November S, 1891.
