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.

This Commission was originally created by the Governor in 1959 to
improve the Workmen's Compensation Law and to insure that changes
in the law are made to improve the workmen's compensation system
in accordance with the standards, but at the same time, to insure that
Maryland still remains competitive with the other states.
This Commission meets regularly and recommends to the Governor
and the Legislature improvements in the law. The changes considered
by this Commission are discussed with representatives of labor, man-
agement, and the insurance industry and has resulted in a greater
understanding between the various interests. Its recommendations
have been well accepted by the Legislature, as well as the working-
man and the employer.
