"The Board of Public Works is composed of the Governor, the State Comptroller, and the State
Treasurer. The Constitution requires the Board to meet on the first Wednesday of January, April, July,
and October in Annapolis and more often when necessary. As a matter of practice, meetings are
scheduled semi-monthly. The Board exercises such powers and duties as are prescribed in the Constitu-
tion or delegated to it from time to time by the General Assembly. The Board approves the
expenditures of all sums appropriated through State loans authorized by the General Assembly, as well
as the expenditures of all general and other funds appropriated for capital improvements except those
appropriated for State roads, bridges, and highways. The Board approves every new lease or renewal
for land, buildings, or office space before such contracts are executed by any department, board, com-
mission, State officer, or institution of the State. It may also designate the location of any State agen-
cy, after review by the Secretary of the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning.

The Board may borrow upon the credit of the State, at any time between the sessions of the General
Assembly, sums not to exceed $50,000 to meet temporary deficits in the Treasury; in addition, it may
borrow upon the credit of the State total amounts not exceeding SI,000,000 in anticipation of taxes lev-
ied for any year. All such loans shall bear interest at a rate determined by the Board, and shall mature
and be repaid at or before the end of the fiscal year in which the money is borrowed. Upon recommen-
dation of the Comptroller, the Board may adopt regulations covering matters of business administration
in the various departments, institutions, and agencies of the State, including the fixing of uniform rates
of mileage allowance and the terms and renewals of all bonds furnished by State officials and employees.
The sale, lease, or transfer of any real property belonging to any State agency or institution must be ap-
proved, and the conveyance signed, by the Board and the highest official of the agency or institution.
Where no agency or institution claims the property, the Board executes the conveyance. The Board of
Public Works has custody of the General Emergency Fund, which is used to supplement the budgets of
the agencies and institutions of the State. It also authorizes the disposal of the records of any agency or
institution of the State when such disposal has been approved by the Hall of Records Commission. The
Board of Public Works must also issue a license to anyone who seeks to dredge or fill in State wetlands.

The Board of Public Woiks is iequired to adopt and promulgate iules, legulatioiis, and piocedures fur
the administration of the State Public School Construction Program and to approve the allocations
which are to be paid to each of the counties and Baltimore City.

The Board is also required to appoint a coordinator whose duties are to provide for the consolidation
of administrative procedures relating to the issuance of permits for certain development and construction
projects (Const. 1867, Art. Ill, sec. 34; Art. XII, sees. 1-3; Art. XVII, sec. 2; Code 1957, Art. 15A, sees.
II, 12; Art. 23, sec. 206; Art. 27, sec. 705; Art. 31, sec. 2B; Art. 41, sees. 59-1, 190, 196, 215, 216, 218,
