The state comptroller said Tuesday he is starting an alcohol task force to review state laws because the state is more “restrictive” on craft breweries than every other state in the country.

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot said he wants to see reform in Maryland alcohol laws. He said the task force, called Reform on Tap, will meet at breweries across the state and discuss concerns about existing laws as well as ideas for new legislation to propose to the General Assembly. Stakeholders such as breweries would make up the task force.

BETHESDA – The National Institutes of Health (NIH) formed a task force last week to outline the agenda for nutrition research.

The Nutrition Research Task Force (NRTF) comes from the NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) as a means of developing a multidisciplinary integrated approach to nutritional research.

“We started to look for ways to integrate and coordinate nutritional research across the field,” said Dr. Christopher Lynch, director of NIDDK’s Office of Nutritional Research who also serves as the spokesperson for the task force.
