In May 2017, the Governor established the Committee on Paid Leave Policy under the Governor's Executive Council (Executive Order 01.01.2017.08).

The Committee assessed Maryland workers' access to paid leave and the extent to which providing such leave would impose burdens and hardships on Maryland businesses. Moreover, to understand needs, challenges, and opportunities relating to the provision of paid leave, the Committee surveyed employers and workers across Maryland. That survey engaged a cross-section of industries and employees representing the overall economy and workforce of Maryland.

On November 28, 2017, the Committee submitted its report to the Governor.
