The Maryland Public Broadcasting Commis-
sion, originally created by Chapter 202, Acts of
1966, as the Maryland Educational-Cultural Tele-
vision Commission, had its functions expanded by
Chapter 645, Acts of 1967, when it became
known as the Maryland Educational-Cultural
Broadcasting Commission. The Commission was
created to develop, operate, and maintain a sys-
iem of State, regional, and local facilities to pro-
vide educational and cultural television and radio
programming throughout Maryland.
The Commission consists of eleven members
appointed by the Governor for five-year terms. The
Governor designates the Chairperson and the Vice
Chairperson of the Commission. One of the
members must be the State Superintendent of
Schools and two other members are designated by
the State Board of Education. Members are chosen
because of their interest in public education, librar-
ies, art, music, drama, higher education, the televi-
sion and radio industries, or other categories to be
chosen by the Governor to bring special competence
to the Commission's membership (Code Education
Article, sees. 24-201 through 24-206).
