The Governor appointed this council by Execu-
tive Order in 1970 to succeed the Governor's Sci-
ence Resources Advisory Council.
The Governor's Science Advisory Council pro-
vides the Governor with objective scientific or tech-
nological advice as the Governor deems necessary
and appropriate. The Council identifies broad fu-
ture problems in all fields to which scientific ap-
proaches should be applied, formulates recom-
mendations to alleviate these problems, and defines
problem areas for which committees could find
solutions or recommendations for action. The
Council also defines scientific areas needing addi-
tional research or data analysis, reviews available
resources to perform such analysis, and recom-
mends the approach to be used. The Council fur-
ther works to improve scientific education and
identifies areas for graduate studies, particularly
those studies that will be of value to the State.
At the Governor's request or with the
Governor's approval, the Council provides scien-
tific and technological advice to the principal exec-
utive departments of State government. It also
serves as a liaison with scientists of other states or
agencies in coordinating approaches to common

In February 1989, the Governor appointed the
Executive/Legislative Committee to Examine Si-
mulcasting in Maryland.
With regard to the horse racing industry, the
Committee will consider whether Maryland should
authorize expansion of simulcasting to ofF-track
locations in the State, and if so, how many and
where such facilities should be authorized. The
Committee also will examine whether ownership
and control of off-track simulcasting facilities
should be vested in current racetracks, in other
private interests, or in State or local government. In
addition, the Committee is to study how revenues
and proceeds from off-track simulcasting facilities
would be distributed.
The Committee will report to the Governor by
