In Maryland, State employee holidays include each statewide general election day, and each other day that the President of the United States or the Governor designates for general cessation of business (Chapter 347, Acts of 1996; Code State Personnel and Pensions Article, sec. 9-201).

Several holidays formerly observed for State employees were abolished as such in 1996. These included Lincoln's Birthday, Maryland Day, Good Friday, and Defender's Day (Chapter 347, Acts of 1996).
