Editors' Notes

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)(1) and (3) and the first sentence of 15-110(b).
In subsection (a) of this section, the reference to “members” is substituted for the former reference to “persons” to conform to the terminology used throughout this subtitle.
Also in subsection (a) of this section, the former reference to members “constitut[ing]” the Board “of License Commissioners for the county” is deleted as surplusage.
In subsection (c)(2) of this section, the reference to the terms being staggered “as required by the terms provided for members of the Board on July 1, 2016” is added as standard language. This addition is not intended to alter the term of any member of the Commission.
In subsection (d) of this section, the reference to “misconduct in office, incompetence, or willful neglect of duty is substituted for the former reference to “the causes in this section prescribed” for clarity.
Also in subsection (d) of this section, the former reference to the County Commissioners removing a member of a board of license commissioners “appointed by them” is deleted as unnecessary because all of the members are appointed by the County Commissioners.
Former Art. 2B, § 15-101(i), which provided that the provisions of former Art. 2B, § 15-104 apply in Cecil County, is deleted as unnecessary in light of the reorganization of this revised article.
Defined terms: “Board” § 17-101
“County” § 17-101
