Assessing Business Climate in Maryland

Don Rush

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland panel examining ways to improve the state's business climate is scheduled to meet.

The Maryland Economic Development and Business Climate Commission will meet Wednesday in Annapolis.

Panel members are slated to discuss an overview of the state's budget and revenue structure. The commission was formed last year by the presiding officers of the Legislature.

It is tasked with examining the state's current economic development structure and incentive programs and make recommendations. The panel issued its first report in February. Another report is scheduled to be sent to lawmakers in September on state and local business-related taxes and tax incentives.

The panel is chaired by former Lockheed Martin CEO Norman Augustine.
