Maryland Manual 1994-1995 Executive Commissions /581

EXECUTIVE COMMISSIONS, COMMITTEES,
TASK FORCES, & ADVISORY BOARDS

Executive commissions, committees, task forces, and advisory boards are created or authorized by the
Governor, either on the Governor's initiative or at the request of the General Assembly. Through these units
of government, the Governor draws upon the expertise of private citizens and public servants. They often are
assigned a specific area of inquiry or responsibility and must complete their work by a prescribed date.

Annual Report & consolidated budget for asbestos
management in State facilities to Governor &
General Assembly due Oct. 1.

The Asbestos Oversight Committee was estab-
lished by the Governor in November 1987 (Execu-
tive Order 01.01.1987.22). After the creation of
the Committee, representation was sought from the
Departments of Health and Mental Hygiene, Pub-
lic Safety and Correctional Services, and Transpor-
tation, as well as the University of Maryland System
and the Office of the Attorney General. The Com-
mittee coordinates asbestos management involving
State employees and facilities.
The Committee reviews, evaluates, and promul-
gates asbestos policy, procedures, and practices con-
sistent with the Code of Maryland Regulations
(COMAR),
the Maryland Occupational Safety and
Health Law, and regulations of the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency and federal Occupa-
tional Safety and Health Administration. The
Committee also sets priorities for project proposals
to abate asbestos hazards and establishes guidelines
and criteria for abatement contracts.
