The Maryland Savings-Share Insurance Corporation was created by
Chapter 131, Acts of 1962, to insure savings and loan and building
and loan associations throughout the State. Membership in the Cor-
poration is on a voluntary basis, and is available to all savings and
loan associations throughout the State that meet the qualifications
of the Maryland Savings-Share Insurance Corporation. The Corpora-
tion is funded by the member savings and loan associations.
The Corporation consists of eleven directors, eight of whom are
elected by the member associations and are representatives of the
member savings and loan associations. All terms after the initial
selection are for four years. The Governor appoints three directors
for four-year terms. The Corporation selects its own Chairman and
adopts its own rules, by-laws and regulations (Code 1967, 1965 Supp.,
Art. 23, sees. 161MM-161XX).

The Department of Labor and Industry, established by Chapter 211,
Acts of 1884, as the Bureau of Statistics and Information, is one of the
oldest governmental agencies in this field in the United 'States, ante-
dating the U. S. Department of Labor by one year. After 1892, the
Department was known as the Industrial Bureau. A reorganization
in 1916 renamed it the State Board of Labor and Statistics, and con-
centrated in it powers to enforce all the factory acts. The General
Assembly made further changes by Chapter 747, Acts of 1939, and
created the present Department by Chapter 938, Acts of 1946.
Primarily a law enforcement agency, the Department is under the
direction of a Commissioner appointed by the Governor for a four-
year term. The Department enforces all laws and regulations affecting
workers and employers and promotes harmony between industry and
labor through mediation and arbitration of labor disputes and the
holding of consent elections (Code 1967, 1966 Supp., Art. 27, sees.
324-333; Art. 38, sec. 3; Art. 66, sees. 161-170; Art. 77, sees. 231-
233; Art. 89, sees. 1-13, 25-67; Art. 100, sees. 1-66, 81-93; Art. 101,
sec. 47).
In addition to offering the services of Apprenticeship and Training,
(Chapter 910, Acts of 1966), the Department is responsible for
enforcement of the following laws: Occupational Safety, Minimum
Wage (Chapter 697, Acts of 1965), Child Labor, Hours of Labor for
Females, Work—Hours of in Factories, Factory Inspection and Indus-
trial Registration. The Department is also responsible for the licensing
of Workshops and Homeworkers, and for the licensing and regulation
of Fee Charging Employment Agencies.
