SPIRO T. AGNEW, Governor                        1561

to carry out the provisions of this subtitle. The duties of the secretary
shall be prescribed by the commission and shall include the super-
vision of all the administrative activities of the commission except
those relating to engineering and financial matters, acting as liaison
between the commission and the public, and in general to promote
relations for the commission; the duties of the treasurer, in accord-
ance with directions of the commission, shall include, but not be
limited to, administrative performance and authority to maintain a
proper and effective utilities accounting system for all financial
transactions of the commission, and to perform such other duties re-
specting the financial affairs of the commission as may be required
by law or by directive of the commission. All acts, orders and reg-
ulations heretofore passed by said commission while sitting in the
District of Columbia are hereby ratified and confirmed and are to be
given the same force and effect as if passed in the State of Maryland.
Said commission shall annually publish in at least one newspaper in
Montgomery County, and one in Prince George's County, a full and
true account of its receipts, expenses and expenditures; said com-
mission shall employ a certified public accountant, certified to prac-
tice as a public accountant in the State of Maryland, to audit its
books and accounts. Said commission shall always keep available
and open to public inspection during business hours, at its principal
office, a detailed audit and financial statement of its accounts. The
commission shall file with the county commissioners of Prince
George's County and the county council of Montgomery County, an-
nually, a certified copy of such detailed audit and financial statement.

(B)    Said commission is authorized to formulate and adopt a pen-
sion or retirement plan for its employees including the right to con-
tract with any established insurance company or insurance com-
panies for a group, annuity, retirement or pension plan, and to con-
tribute so much thereto as it may deem equitable, or be required to
pay under any contract, and such contribution or payment shall be
charged as expenses of the several departments of the commission in
the same proportion that the receipts of the respective departments
bear to the total receipts of the commission.

(C)    The General Assembly of Maryland hereby finds, determines
and declares that the term "Municipal Corporation" in Article 11E
of the Constitution of Maryland does not embrace or include the
Washington Suburban Sanitary District which was incorporated by
Chapter 122 of the Acts of the General Assembly of Maryland of
1918. That the Washington Suburban Sanitary District cannot be
classified in any group e* OF Municipal Corporations as required
by said Article HE, and that said Article 11E therefore has no
application to the Washington Suburban Sanitary District.

Sec. 2. And be it further enacted, That this Act is hereby declared
to be an emergency measure and necessary for the immediate pres-
ervation of the public health and safety, and having been passed
by a yea and nay vote supported by three-fifths of all the members
elected to each of the two houses of the General Assembly of Mary-
land, the same shall take effect from the date of its passage.

Approved May 4, 1967.
