Report to Governor & General Assembly due (1st draft completed June 1999).

The Task Force to Study Anti-Asian Violence was created in 1995 (Chapter 311, Acts of 1995) and reformed in 1997 (Chapter 395, Acts of 1997). The Task Force charge was to devise a plan to prevent and reduce the incidence of violence against Asian Americans. The Task Force also examined the problem of anti-Asian violence in Maryland and legal remedies for it; reviewed the efforts of other states to combat violence; and developed public education programs to counteract biased anti-Asian sentiments.

The Office of Asian-Pacific American Affairs staffed the Task Force. Authorization for the Task Force expired January 1, 1998 (Code 1957, Art. 41, sec. 18-308).
