Maryland Representatives:
Robert Garner, State Member
William A. Pate, Alternate
1666 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, D. C. 20009
By Chapter 415, Acts of 1965, the Governor and the Board of Public
Works were authorized to appoint a State member and an alternate
to the Appalachian Regional Commission to implement the Federal
Appalachian Regional Development Act of 1965. In addition to the
State's representatives and alternate, Maryland also has an elected
representative selected by the majority of the eleven states (Code
1957, 1965 Supp„ Art. 78A, sec. 13A).
The Commission was created by the Appalachian Regional Develop-
ment Act of 1965 (Public Law 89-4) to plan and coordinate projects
and programs authorized by the Act for the development of the
12-State Appalachian Region, which includes the Western Maryland
counties of Washington, Allegany, and Garrett. The Commission con-
sists of a Federal Co-Chairman appointed by the President and one
member from each participating State, who may be the Governor or
his designee. A State Co-Chairman is elected periodically by the
Programs for Appalachian development authorized by the Act
include the construction of a developmental highway system, access
roads, health centers, vocational educational schools and sewage treat-
ment works; the development of land, timber and water resources,
the rehabilitation of areas damaged by strip and surface mining; and
the establishment of local development districts to support economic
development efforts at the local level. The Act authorizes the appro-
priations of $1,092,400,000 to cover the Federal share of the cost of
these programs, of which $840,000,000 is earmarked for the construc-
tion of 2,350 miles of development highways and 1,000 miles of access
roads over 5-year period. The Commission has approved the construc-
tion of a total of 78.1 miles of developmental highways in Maryland.
The Commission is not an operating agency. Its major function is
the planning and coordination of programs and projects to be carried
out under the Act by the appropriate Federal and State departments
and agencies. The Commission can act only on those programs and
projects which are submitted to it by State members. Its decisions
require the affirmative vote of the Federal Co-Chairman and of a
majority of State members.
