Maryland Task Force Reports

The Library's array of Maryland legislative task force and commission reports is a unique subset of its collection of state government publications. These task force reports merit special mention, however, because of their special place in the legislative history research process.

Task force and commission reports date from the mid-20th Century and continue to the most recent acquisitions. Before the establishment of legislative bill files in 1975, these legislative reports were some of the only sources to include some indication of legislative intent.

These reports are available for study to anyone visiting the Library. Many have been scanned or were published online and are available online at the Digital Collections of the Maryland State Law Library and via links in the library catalog. Users may also wish to take advantage of the Library's Document Delivery Service.
