Governor and Lieutenant Governor at the same time, the General
Assembly must convene and fill the office of Governor by a majority
vote of all the members in joint session. The chosen Governor then
nominates a Lieutenant Governor with the same confirmation.
The President of the Senate serves as acting Governor if the
Lieutenant Governor is not able to serve as acting Governor. If there
is a vacancy in the office of President of the Senate when he is author-
ized to serve as acting Governor, the Senate must convene and fill the
vacancy (Chapter 532, Acts of 1970; Const. 1867, Art. II, sees. 1A,
1B, 6 and 7A).

The State Department of Legislative Reference was originally
created by Chapter 665, Acts of 1906 to serve the City of Baltimore.
The scope of the Department was enlarged so that it would also
serve the State by Chapter 474, Acts of 1916. By Chapter 463, Acts
of 1965, the State's portion of the Department was transferred to
the Legislative Branch. The present Department dates its present
organization from Chapter 671, Acts of 1966, which separated this
Department of the State government from the Department of the
same name in Baltimore City.
The Department collects, compiles, and indexes information on all
questions of proposed legislation. It investigates and reports on the laws
of Maryland and other states at the request of the Governor, any
committee or member of the General Assembly, or any State agency.
At the request of a member of the General Assembly, the Department
prepares or aids in the drafting of any law or resolution. During
sessions of the General Assembly, the Department maintains offices
in the State House at Annapolis. Each department of the State gov-
ernment must transmit to the Department of Legislative Reference
at least two copies of each of its reports, which are used for exchange
and reference purposes. The Department keeps a complete index and
a complete file on all bills introduced in the General Assembly from
1918 to the present. It also keeps copies of the codes and laws of
other states, and it maintains a library of books, pamphlets, reports,
periodicals, and clippings on matters of current public and political
interest (Code 1957, 1971 Repl. Vol., Art. 40, sees. 48-53).
