J. MILLARD TAWES, GOVERNOR                             1735

Whereas, Conflicts of interest legislation should carefully balance
the public interest in the integrity of State officials and personnel
with the bona fide private interests of such persons; and

Whereas, The beneficial purpose of such legislation is to preclude
State officials and personnel from engaging in conduct which might
create a reasonable impression among the public that such conduct
is in violation of the public trust; and

Whereas, Conflicts of interest legislation must recognize that
under our democratic form of government, public officials and em-
ployees should be drawn from all of our citizens; that citizens who
serve our State cannot and should not be expected to be without
personal interest in State decisions and policies; that citizens who
are State officials and employees have a right to private interest of
a personal, financial and economic nature; that standards of conduct
should separate those conflicts of interest which are unavoidable in a
free society from those conflicts of interest which are substantial
and material, or which bring the government into disrepute; now,
therefore, be it

Resolved by the General Assembly of Maryland, That the Legis-

mittee to study the advisability of State-wide legislation regulating
conflict of interests by State officers and personnel, whether ap-
pointed, elected or employed, and report its findings together with
any recommendations it may have to the General Assembly of Mary-
land at the beginning of the 1962 legislative session.

Approved May 3, 1961.

No. 36
(House Joint Resolution 51)

House Joint Resolution congratulating the Kennedy Administration
on the establishment of the Peace Corps.

Whereas, There exists in newly developing countries a critical
need for skilled assistance to aid the people in their efforts to achieve
a better life; and

Whereas, the overwhelming response to the Peace Corps indicates
many Americans enthusiastically welcome the opportunity to under-
take a job in which they can be of service to others; and

Whereas, the Peace Corps represents a bold, imaginative program
which will enable Americans to work actively towards the improve-
ment of conditions in many areas of the world; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, by the General Assembly of Maryland, that the Kennedy
Administration be congratulated on its establishment of the Peace
Corps; and be it further

Resolved, That the Secretary of State be directed to send a copy
