Maryland’s State Government conducts itself under the rules of the Maryland State Constitution. The Maryland Government possesses sole authority over issues completely within the state, except as circumscribed by the U.S. Constitution.  The governor of Maryland has more power over the state budget than most other state governors in the nation.  In addition, Maryland counties enjoy more independence than the majority of those in the U.S.

Maryland’s judicial system provides for one U.S. District Court in every county and Baltimore City; furthermore, there is a Maryland Circuit Court in every County and Baltimore City.  Maryland’s intermediate appellate court is called the Court of Special Appeals, and Maryland’s highest state court is called the Court of Appeals.  Maryland’s Court of Appeals judges are the only state judges in the country to don red robes.
