Annual Report to Governor due Oct. 1 (Chapter 20, Acts of 1972; Code Economic Development Article, sec. 10-319).

[photo, World Trade Center (a pentagonal building), 401 East Pratt St., Baltimore, Maryland] The Maryland Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority was created in 1970 (Chapter 408, Acts of 1970). The Authority assists hospitals, related health-care organizations, and educational institutions with financing for construction, site acquisition, and capital equipment. Private nonprofit health and higher educational facilities may use the Authority as a vehicle to issue tax-exempt bonds and thereby pay a lower rate of interest. The Authority is funded from interest earnings on investments, and fees charged to participating borrowers.

The Authority consists of nine members. Eight are appointed to five-year terms by the Governor. The State Treasurer serves ex officio. Annually, the Governor designates the chair and vice-chair. With the Governor's approval, the Authority names the Executive Director (Code Economic Development Article, secs. 10-301 through 10-356).
