438 MARYLAND MANUAL [Art. 2, Sec. 13]

1 SEC. 13. All civil officers appointed by the Governor and
Senate, shall be nominated to the Senate within fifty days
from the commencement of each regular session of the Leg-
islature; and their term of office, except in cases otherwise
provided for in this Constitution, shall commence on the
first Monday of May next ensuing their appointment, and
continue for two years, (unless removed from office), and
until their successors, respectively, qualify according to

SEC. 14. If a vacancy shall occur, during the session of
the Senate, in any office which the Governor and Senate
have the power to fill, the Governor shall nominate to the
Senate before its final adjournment, a proper person to fill
said vacancy, unless such vacancy occurs within ten days
before said final adjournment.

SEC. 15. The Governor may suspend or arrest any mili-
tary officer of the State for disobedience of orders, or other
military offense; and may remove him in pursuance of the
sentence of a Court-Martial; and may remove for incompe-
tency, or misconduct, all civil officers who received appoint-
ment from the Executive for a term of years.

SEC. 16. The Governor shall convene the Legislature, or
the Senate alone, on extraordinary occasions; and when-
ever from the presence of an enemy, or from any other
cause, the Seat of Government shall become an unsafe place
for the meeting of the Legislature, he may direct their
sessions to he held at some other convenient place.

SEC. 17. To guard against hasty or partial legislation
and encroachments of the Legislative Department upon the
co-ordinate Executive and Judicial Departments, every Bill
which shall have passed the House of Delegates, and the
Senate shall, before it becomes law, be presented to the
Governor of the State; if he approves 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 objections
at large on its Journal and proceed to reconsider the Bill; if,
after such reconsideration, three-fifths of the members
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 it pass by three-fifths of the mem-
bers 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

1 Thus amended by Chapter 99, Acts of 1956, approved by the voters November
6. 1956.
