In June 2007, the Maryland Green Building Council was authorized (Chapters 115 & 116, Acts of 2007). [An earlier Maryland Green "Buildings" Council had convened in 2001-02.]
The Council is to evaluate current high performance building technologies. It will recommend what cost-effective green building technologies the State could possibly require to be used in the construction of State facilities. Also, the Council is to compile a list of building categories in which green building technologies should not be used.
In its annual report, the Council is to recommend an implementation plan for a State higher performance building program.
Of the Council's sixteen members, the Governor appoints six to two-year terms. Ten members serve ex officio (Code State Finance & Procurement Article, sec. 4-809).
