As ratified by the voters at the general
election held in November of 1976, the
Office of State Prosecutor and the State
Prosecutor Selection and Disabilities will be
established by Chapter 612, Acts of 1976
as independent units within the office of the
Attorney General.
The State Prosecutor will be nominated
by the State Prosecutorial Selection and Dis-
abilities Commission and appointed by the
Governor, with the advice and consent of
the Senate, for six year terms.
The State Prosecutor may investigate
criminal offenses under State election laws;
criminal offenses under State conflict of
interest laws; violations of State bribery laws
in which an official or employee of the State
or of a political subdivision of the State was
the offerer or offeree or intended offerer or
offeree of a bribe, and offenses constituting
criminal malfeasance, misfeasance, or non-
feasance in office committed by an officer
of the State or of a political subdivision of
the State.
Requests for investigations of these of-
fenses may come from the Governor, the
Attorney General, the General Assembly, a
state's attorney, or on the initiative of the
State Prosecutor. At the request of the Gov-

ernor, the Attorney General, the General
Assembly, or a state's attorney, the State
Prosecutor may investigate criminal activity
conducted partly in this State and partly in
another jurisdiction, or in more than one
political subdivision of the State. Upon find-
ing an alleged violation, the State Prosecutor
will make a confidential report of these find-
ings together with any recommendations for
prosecution to the Attorney General and the
state's attorney having jurisdiction to prose-
cute the matter. Within 45 days after receipt
of the State Prosecutor's findings and rec-
ommendations, if the state's attorney does
not file charges and commence prosecution
in accordance with the recommendations,
the State Prosecutor may prosecute these
offenses. If the State Prosecutor finds that no
violations of criminal laws have occurred or
does not recommend prosecution, the State
Prosecutor will report these findings to the
person requesting the investigation. At the
request of the person who was the subject
of the investigation, the State Prosecutor's
report may be made available to the public
as soon as possible.
The same Act also provides for a State
Prosecutor Selection and Disabilities Com-
mission, which will consist of the Attorney
General (ex officio but with voting power)
and six persons appointed by the Governor,
These individuals will include representa-
tives of the Maryland State Bar Association,
the Maryland State's Attorneys' Association,
and individuals recommended by the Presi-
dent of the Senate and the Speaker of the
House of Delegates. (These recommended
individuals cannot be members of the Gen-
eral Assembly or full-time State employees.)
Members serve four year terms (Code 1957,
