Report to Governor & General Assembly due Jan. 1, 2021 (Chapter 207, Acts of 2020).

In July 2020, the Task Force on the Economic Future of Western Maryland was established by the General Assembly (Chapter 207, Acts of 2020).

The Task Force first will study the current economic situation in Western Maryland. Then, it is to consider and make recommendations for improving the local economies of Allegany, Garrett and Washington counties. This will include how to strengthen technology-based and tourism-based industries in Western Maryland, and how to overcome barriers to the expansion of small businesses in the area.
