portant have been acts increasing maximum temporary total disabil-
ity payments to $40.00 weekly; increasing maximum permanent total
disability payments to 340.00 weekly; and increasing the maximum

The Medical Board for Occupational Diseases was established by
Chapter 465, Acts of 1939. The Governor appoints the members of
the Board for six-year terms with the approval of the Senate, from
lists of nominees submitted by the Deans of the schools of medicine
of the University of Mainland and the Johns Hopkins University
and the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. Each of these
agencies submits a list of three persons, two of whom are experienced
in occupational diseases, and one of whom is an experienced physician
in good professional standing. Two must have had at least five years
practice in the treating, diagnosis, and care of industrial diseases,
and the third must have been trained in roentgenology and must have
had five years practice and experience. The Governor designates the
Chairman of the Board. The Board hears and adjudicates all claims
for compensation for disability caused by an occupational disease.
The decisions of the Board are subject to review by the Workmen's
Compensation Commission (Code 1957, Art. 101, sees. 22-29).
