   *Editor's note—This Chapter is cited in Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission v. Mardirossian, 184 Md. App. 207, 964 A.2d 713 (2009).
   2021 L.M.C., ch. 1, § 2, states:  Sec. 2. Transition.  Section 1 of this Act must not apply to a county highway project if, prior to the effective date of the Act, construction funding has been appropriated for the project, and the project has been submitted to the Planning Board under mandatory referral.
   2010 L.M.C., ch. 6, § 2(b), states: Any amendment to County Code Chapter 22A made by Section 1 of this Act applies to any enforcement action that begins after this Act takes effect [ March 26, 2010] even if the alleged violation on which the enforcement action is based was committed before this Act took effect.
   2005 L.M.C., ch. 32, § 2, repeals 1992 L.M.C., ch. 4, § 2, set forth below.
   1992 L.M.C., ch. 4, §§ 2, 3, 4 and 5 read as follows (1992 L.M.C., ch. 4, § 3 was amended by 2013 L.M.C., ch. 4, § 2):
   Sec. 2. Setting of in lieu fees and maximum administrative civil penalty.
   Until altered by law or resolution, the fee in lieu of afforestation or reforestation is 30 cents per square foot of the area of required planting and the maximum administrative civil penalty authorized is $1.00 per square foot of the area found to be in noncompliance.
   Sec. 3. Contingency on Commission resolution.
   Until express authority for Planning Board administration and enforcement of Article II, as enacted in Section 1 of this Act, is provided under State law, this Act is contingent on and does not become effective until the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission adopts a resolution under Section 20-207 of the Land Use Article of the Maryland Code allocating the functions provided under this Act to the Montgomery County Planning Board.
   Sec. 4. Administrative Actions.
   The Chief Administrative Officer is expressly authorized to initiate all necessary budgetary, personnel, and other administrative actions to implement this Act. Until a County Arborist is appointed, the responsibility of the Arborist under this Act to approve proposed commercial logging and timber harvesting operations, review proposed variances, and review certain reports, must be exercised by the Director of the Department of Environmental Protection or the Director's designee.
   Sec. 5. Effective Date; Delayed Provisions.
   Except as provided in Section 3 and this Section, this Act takes effect 91 days following the date that it becomes law, Section 22A-26 (Regulations) as enacted by Section 1 of this Act takes effect on that date. All other provisions of this Act take effect on July 1, 1992.
   These requirements by State law: 1992, ch. 643, and Park and Planning Resolution No. 92-07.
