In October 2012, the Harriet Tubman Statue Commission was established by the General Assembly (Chapter 723, Acts of 2012). At the same time, the General Assembly authorized the Governor to present a statue of Harriet Tubman to the United States Government, and request that the statue be placed in Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, DC.

The Commission represents the State in selecting the sculptor for the Harriet Tubman statue and is to raise private funds to cover all expenses associated with the commissioning, transportation, placement, and unveiling of the statue.

Appointed by the Governor, the Commission consists of ten members.

In 2017, a bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate (S. 402) to direct the Joint Committee on the Library to enter into an agreement with the Harriet Tubman Statue Commission of the State of Maryland for the acceptance of a statue of Harriet Tubman for display in a prominent location in the United States Capitol.
