The Governor reorganized the Commission to
Study Sovereign Immunity in July of 1975 in
response to legislative initiatives seeking
revisions in the common law doctrine of sover-
eign immunity. In an effort to provide the Gen-
eral Assembly with functional reference materi-
al, the Governor directed the Commission to
explore the entire concept of sovereign immuni-
ty with particular emphasis on the practical and
fiscal implications of a sovereign immunity ab-
rogation in contract and tort. Pursuant to the
Governor's charge, the Commission undertook
an extensive survey to review the experience of
other states that had modified the doctrine of
sovereign immunity and to evaluate the impact
anticipated by various sectors of the Maryland
governmental communities in the event the doc-
trine was abrogated. A report was submitted to
the Governor and General Assembly in Novem-
ber 1976.
