Defunct Executive Commissions, Committees, Task Forces, & Advisory Boards
In Maryland, executive commissions, committees, task forces, and advisory boards are created or authorized by action of the Governor or General Assembly. Often, these boards are assigned a specific responsibility or area of inquiry.
Through special study boards, the Governor draws upon the expertise of private citizens and public servants to help solve problems of government. These boards must complete their work by a prescribed date. They may receive staff or other administrative support from an executive department or agency.
