cil of the counties may sit in each year for

the purpose of enacting legislation for such

counties, and all legislation shall be enacted

at the times so designated for that purpose

in the charter, and all laws and ordinances

so enacted shall be published once a week

for three successive weeks in at least one

newspaper published in such counties, so

that the taxpayers and citizens may have

notice thereof. This provision 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 subject to the same rules

of interpretation as those now applicable to

the Public Local Laws of this State, except

that in case of any conflict between said

local law and any Public General Law now

or hereafter enacted the Public General

Law shall control.

Sec. 4. From and after the adoption of a

charter under the provisions of this Article

by the City of Baltimore or any county of

this State, no public local law shall be

enacted by the General Assembly for said

city or county on any subject covered by

the express powers granted as above pro-

vided. Any law so drawn as to apply to two

or more of the geographical subdivisions of

this State shall not be deemed a Local Law,

within the meaning of this Act. The term

"geographical sub-division" herein used shall

be taken to mean the City of Baltimore or

any of the counties of this State.

Sec. 6. The power heretofore conferred

upon the General Assembly to prescribe the

number, compensation, powers and duties

of the County Commissioners in each

county, and the power to make changes in

Sections 1 to 6 inclusive, Article XI of this

Constitution, when expressly granted as

hereinbefore provided, are hereby trans-

ferred to the voters of each county and the

voters of City of Baltimore, respectively,

provided that said powers so transferred

shall be exercised only by the adoption

or amendment of a charter as hereinbefore

provided; and provided further that this

Article shall not be construed to authorize

the exercise of any powers in excess of those

conferred by the legislature upon said

counties or city as this Article sets forth.

See Art. XI -B, Sec. I and Sec. 2 at Section

1.16 for the power of the General Assembly

by public local law to authorize the Mayor

and City Council of Baltimore to acquire

and sell land for land development.
