Legislative Reports
The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) produces numerous legislative reports and Joint Chairmen’s Reports (JCRs) in response to legislative and budgetary requirements. DHMH’s reports inform public officials and Marylanders about the Department’s plans and progress toward improving the health of Marylanders through Departmental programs and initiatives. These reports may also contain statistical tables, explain research studies, and foster accountability for the programs for which the Secretary of Health and Mental Hygiene has oversight.
The Maryland Department of Legislative Services (DLS) maintains a central repository of legislative reports and JCRs through its online DLS Library Catalog. Please follow these instructions to access legislative reports and JCRs of interest:
• Visit the Maryland General Assembly home page at www.mgaleg.maryland.gov and click on the Search DLS Library Catalog link.
• Enter key words that represent the report you wish to locate in the “Quick Search” box and click on the “Search” tab.
• Click on the little box with a picture of a chain link to access the report.
