University of Baltimore Law Review


As local legislative powers expand, the demarcation between state and local legislative powers has become increasingly unclear. Purported inconsistencies between state and local laws have surfaced. This Comment analyzes the conflict and preemption doctrines in Maryland and synthesizes the general rules applicable to these doctrines. Concluding that the Court of Appeals of Maryland utilizes a rational approach in this area of municipal law, the author urges caution in employing implied preemption.
