ACT CLASSIFYING THE COUNTIES OF PENNSYLVANIA,

AN ACT Dividing the counties of this Commonwealth into eight classes ; designating the mode of ascertain

ing and changing the classification of countles; and providing for the regulation of their affairs according to their respective classes.

Whereas, One of the justices of the Supreme Court in a concurring opinion expressed the thought that counties had never been classified as had cities; and

Whereas, The General Assembly has heretofore for the purposes of legislation on particular subjects classified counties without regard to any uniformity or general classification, many of which acts have been declared unconstitutional; and

Whereas, The great diversity in population and the physical condition of the several counties requires separate laws for their government and the regulation of their affairs; therefore,

Section 1. Be it enacted, &c., That for the purposes of legislation and the regulation of their affairs, counties of this Commonwealth now in existence and those hereafter erected shall be divided into eight classes as follows:

Those having a population of one million five hundred thousand inhabitants and over, shall constitute the first class.

Those having a population of eight hundred thousand and more but less than one million five hundred thousand inhabitants, shall constitute the second class.

Those having a population of two hundred and fifty thousand and more but less than eight hundred thousand inhabitants, shall constitute the third class.

Those having a population of one hundred fifty thousand and more but less than two hundred and fifty thousand inhabitants, shall constitute the fourth class.

Those baving a population of one hundred thousand and more but less than one hundred fifty thousand inhabitants, shall constitute the fifth class.

Those having a population of fifty thousand and more but less than one hundred thousand inbabitants, shall constitute the sixth class.

Those having a population of twenty thousand and more but less than fifty thousand inhabitants, shall constitute the seventh class.

Those having a population of less than twenty thousand inhabitants, shall constitute the eighth class.

Section 2. The classification of counties shall be ascertained and fixed according to their population by reference, from time to time, to the last preceding decennial United States census. Whenever it shall appear by any such census that any county has attained a population entitling it to an advance in classification as herein prescribed, it shall be the duty of the Governor, under the great seal of this Commonwealth, to certify that fact accordingly, which certificate shall be forwarded to the recorder of deeds of the proper county, and be recorded in his office.

Section 3. The affairs of counties shall hereafter be legislated for, and regulated by, the general laws of this Commonwealth applicable to all counties or to particular classes as herein fixed and appointed. All laws hereafter adopted by the General Assembly for one or more of the classes herein fixed and appointed shall be deemed to be general laws.

Section 4. All acts and parts of acts of Assembly relative to the several counties of this Commonwealth in force prior to the adoption of this act shall remain in force in the same manner and with the same effect in the several counties as prior to the adoption of this act. (Act of July 10, 1919, P. L. 887.)
