Annual Report to Governor & Legislative Policy Committee due Dec. 31.

In 1987, the Joint Committee on Workers' Compensation Benefit and Insurance Oversight began as the Workers' Compensation Benefit and Insurance Oversight Committee (Chapter 590, Acts of 1987). The Committee received its present name in 1991 (Chapter 55, Acts of 1991; Chapter 225, Acts of 2007).

The Committee evaluates and examines the structure for workers' compensation and benefits in Maryland. The Committee also monitors the effects on that structure of the changes enacted by Chapters 590 and 591, Acts of 1987. To enable the Committee to carry out its function, the Maryland Insurance Commissioner and the State Workers' Compensation Commission submit an annual report to the Committee, cooperate with and keep the Oversight Committee fully informed as to the condition of workers' compensation benefits and insurance in Maryland.

Sixteen members constitute the Committee. They are appointed by the Senate President and House Speaker, who name the chair (Code State Government Article, sec. 2-10A-03).
