thereof. The validity of emergency legislation shall not be affected if enacted prior to the
completion of advertising thereof. These provisions concerning publication shall not apply
to Baltimore City. All such local laws enacted by the Mayor of Baltimore and City Council
of the City of Baltimore or the Council of the Counties as hereinbefore provided, shall be
