Report to Governor & General Assembly due Sept. 30, 2014.

The Commission on the Establishment of a Maryland Women in Military Service Monument originally was authorized in July 2006, and appointed in July 2007 (Chapters 281& 282, Acts of 2006). The Commission was to identify and recommend the funding, design, construction, and placement of a monument dedicated to women from Maryland who served in the uniformed forces of the United States. Authorization for the Commission expired September 30, 2007; however, an extension was authorized to March 3, 2008. The Commission submitted its interim report on December 31, 2007, and its final report on March 3, 2008.

In June 2009, the Commission was re-established (Chapters 537 & 538, Acts of 2009). It will coordinate and monitor efforts to erect a monument to Maryland women who have served in the military, and may enter into a memorandum of understanding with the federal government, a unit of State government, county government, or a municipality.

Authorization for the Commission extends through September 30, 2014, or until a monument to honor Maryland women in military service is completed and erected, if that occurs before September 30, 2014.
