The Task Force to Study Lighting Efficiency and Light Pollution in Maryland organized in 2001 (Joint Resolution no. 12, Acts of 2001). The Task Force estimated the potential fiscal and energy costs and savings associated with the adoption of lighting practices that minimize inefficient lighting, light pollution, and energy waste while meeting important illumination and safety lighting requirements. The benefits of lighting to the public, and the consequences of light pollution in Maryland also were studied and documented by the Task Force.

In March 2002, the Task Force submitted its final report.
