Annual Report to Governor & General Assembly (Chapter 6, Acts of 2007; Code Economic Development Article, sec. 11-109).
In January 2007, the Governor convened the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Subcabinet to coordinate planning for the growth that will accompany the realignment, authorized by Congress, of federal military bases in Maryland. The Subcabinet was established by statute effective June 1, 2007 (Chapter 6, Acts of 2007).
All State action to support the missions of military installations in Maryland are coordinated and overseen by the Subcabinet. This includes related initiatives in the areas of workforce readiness, business development, education, health care facilities and services, community infrastructure and growth, environmental stewardship, workforce housing, and transportation.
The Subcabinet consists of the Lieutenant Governor, who serves as chair, and nine ex officio members. Authorization for the Subcabinet continues until December 31, 2011 (Code Economic Development Article, secs. 11-101 through 11-109).
The Local Government Subcommittee of the Base Realignment and Closure Subcabinet formed in August 2007.
