Notes

[Note]
   *Editor's note-The ten-year solid waste management plan was upheld in King v. Gleason, 32 Md. App. 151, 359 A.2d 245 (1976).
   2008 L.M.C., ch. 5, §§ 3, 6 and 7 state:
   Sec. 3. Any regulation in effect when this Act takes effect that implements a function transferred to another Department or Office under Section 1 of this Act continues in effect, but any reference in any regulation to the Department from which the function was transferred must be treated as referring to the Department to which the function is transferred.  The transfer of a function under this Act does not affect any right of a party to any legal proceeding begun before this Act took effect.
   Sec. 6. Any responsibility or right granted by law, ordinance, regulation, delegation of authority, contract, or other document to the Department of Public Works and Transportation in connection with solid waste is transferred to the Department of Environmental Protection.
   Sec. 7. Any duty or authority involving solid waste assigned by the County's Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan to the Department of Public Works and Transportation and the Director of that Department are reassigned to the Department of Environmental Protection and the Director of that Department, respectively.  Any reference in that Plan to the Department of Public Works and Transportation or the Director of that Department must be treated as referring to the Department of Environmental Protection and the Director of the Department of Environmental Protection, respectively.
