Annual Report to Governor due June 30.
In June 2010, the Governor's Commission on Small Business was authorized (Executive Order 01.01.2010.13). The Commission was to make recommendations to the Governor and General Assembly on how to sustain and expand the growth of small businesses in Maryland.

The Commission reviewed and analyzed current State regulations. With the Maryland Economic Development Commission, it recommended what policies the State needs for small businesses. Further, the Commission worked to implement the recommendations of the Small Business Task Force; listen to small businesses concerning existing barriers to their growth; and undertake an outreach initiative to small businesses.

To support development and job creation in growth industries, the Commission advocated for skills upgrades and full employment. In addition, it identified public/private partnership opportunities that supplement current programs and financial incentives for small businesses; and recommended how to improve access to resources for minority businesses, and involve youth in entrepreneurship.

Inactive since December 2014.
