Final Report to Governor & General Assembly due Jan. 1, 2025 (Chapter 455, Acts of 2023).
The Commission is to review, evaluate, and make recommendations on current State funding sources and the structure of the Maryland Transportation Trust Fund; and short– and long–term construction and maintenance funding needs for transit, highway, pedestrian, bicycle, heavy rail, shipping, air travel, and other transportation needs. Also under consideration will be methods that other states use to fund state transportation operating and capital programs, including toll revenue, vehicle–miles–traveled fees, fees on zero–emission vehicles, and non–transportation–related revenue options. To meet transportation funding needs, the Commission is to review options for public–private partnerships, including those with local governments. It further will guage changes in transportation technology and trends that will impact transportation infrastructure needs and costs to the State; and evaluate practices for prioritizing project funding, as well as options to better consider needs, including local and legislative priorities. In addition, the Commission is to consider the structure of regional transportation authorities and their ability to meet transportation needs in various regions of the State; options to sustain long–term revenue sources for transportation; and ways to improve the Department of Transportation’s ability and capacity to deliver major capital projects.
Thirty-one members constitute the Commission. Of these, twenty-one members are appointed by the Governor, three by the Senate President, and three by the House Speaker. Four members serve ex officio. The Governor names the Chair after consultation with the Senate President and House Speaker.
