In the fall of 1996, the House Speaker appointed the Special Committee on Competitive Taxation and Economic Development. The Committee held hearings across the State to hear citizens' views on Maryland's tax structure and burden, and secured expert advice on taxation and economic development. The Committee compared Maryland's tax structure and burden with other states and recommended changes.
The Committee was composed of ten members each from the House Appropriations Committee, the House Economic Matters Committee, and the House Ways and Means Committee. On January 13, 1997, the Committee reported its findings to the House Speaker.
