The Commission on Maryland's Fiscal Structure was created in 2002 (Chapter 343, Acts of 2002). The Commission reviewed and evaluated Maryland's fiscal structure. It was to recommend changes to the processes by which levels of spending and capital debt affordability are determined, and the annual State budget is developed and enacted. Current taxes, including those levied on income, sales, property, and business, were to be examined to ensure the equity, efficiency, and progressiveness of the State's tax structure.
Future funding needs for education, transportation, and health care and the State's ability to meet those obligations also were to be addressed by the Commission, as were inefficiencies in State government, its services and operations. Finally, the Commission was to consider changes in the tax structure to make Maryland more competitive in economic development.
The Commission was terminated on June 1, 2003 before completing its final report (Chapter 203, Acts of 2003).
