LEGISLATIVE NOTES
Revisor's Note (Acts 2016, c. 41):
This section is new language derived without substantive change from former Art. 2B, §§ 15-104(a-1)(4), 15-109(i), and 15-112(a)(2).
In subsection (b)(1)(i) and (2)(i) of this section, the references to the “chair” are substituted for the former references to the “Chairman” because SG § 2-1238 requires the use of words that are neutral as to gender to the extent practicable.
In subsection (b)(2)(i) of this section, the reference to each “other” member of the Board is added for clarity.
In subsection (b)(2)(ii) of this section, the requirement that expenses be paid by the “County” is substituted for the former requirement that expenses be paid by the “Commissioners” for accuracy.
In subsection (c)(1)(iii) of this section, the reference to “assistants” is substituted for the former reference to “assistance” for clarity.
Defined terms: “Board” § 17-101
“County” § 17-101

CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS
Article III, § 35, of the Maryland Constitution, provides:
“Extra compensation may not be granted or allowed by the General Assembly to any public Officer, Agent, Servant or Contractor, after the service has been rendered, or the contract entered into; nor may the salary or compensation of any public officer be increased or diminished during his term of office except those whose full term of office is fixed by law in excess of 4 years. However, after January 1, 1956, for services rendered after that date, the salary or compensation of any appointed public officer of the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore may be increased or diminished at any time during his term of office; except that as to officers in the Classified City Service, when the salary of any appointed public officer of the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore however, increased or decreased, it may not again be increased or decreased, as the case may be, during the term of such public officer.”
