order to operate, and (2) impossibility of
accurately estimating what amounts will be
needed to pay claims and their allocated
operational expenses.
The assets of the MAIF are derived from
four sources: (1) A transfer of all the
assets of the UCJF as of the close of busi-
ness on December 31, 1972. The purpose
of this transfer is to allow the processing
and payment of claims which had been pre-
viously filed against the UCJF, or which
could have been previously filed against the
UCJF but for its merger into MAIF. (2)
For 1973 only, every person registering a
vehicle in this State was required to pay a
fee of $1.50. This fee was to replace the
$40.00 uninsured motorist fee previously
paid by uninsured motorists to UCJF, and
is committed exclusively to the payment of
claims against uninsured motorists. Since the
number of uninsured claims will probably
be reduced by virtue of compulsory insur-
ance, this one-time fee may not be necessary
in the future. (3) By virtue of Chapter 241
(1976), each insurer authorized to write
automobile liability and physical damage
insurance in this State may be assessed up
to 4% of its net direct written premiums.
The MAIF Board of Trustees determines
whether or not it will have an operating
deficit. If so, MAIF certifies this amount to
the Industry Automobile Insurance Asso-
ciation. This organization represents the in-
surance industry and was created by Chap-
ter 241, Acts of 1976. Assessment monies
may be used for the general purposes of
the Fund, however, premium and investment
income may be used only for payment of
claims and administrative expenses of the
Fund arising out of policies issued by the
Fund. The Fund is required to keep separate
records of income and expenses directly
attributable to the processing and payment
of uninsured claims. (4) Monies collected
from premiums and earnings from invest-
ments (Code 1957, 1968 Repl. Vol., 1975

The Blind Industries and Services of
Maryland, established by Chapter 566, Acts
of 1908, adopted its present name by Chap-
ter 164, Acts of 1973. It is a State-aided

operate training and employment centers for
the training, rehabilitation, and employment

tion and under authority of the Federal
