Disposition of the Biennial Act 1737

  • The Biennial Act of Carolina referring the biennial meeting of Assemblies & regulation of elections & members.
    • It seems that these assemblies have powers that the Crown never gave to them.
    • The power to convene Parliaments is the exclusive privilege of the Crown & this act is an attempt to deprive him of it.
    • The Council of Trade & Plantations should show its disapproval of this law because it encroaches on royal prerogative.
