In July 2008, the Task Force on Student Physical Fitness in Maryland Public Schools was created (Chapter 473, Acts of 2008).

The Task Force considered whether Maryland public schools should provide weekly a minimum amount of physical activity or education for students. Further, the Task Force studied how much such a minimum amount of physical activity or education per week would cost, and what impact it might have on childhood obesity and related health issues. To reach its conclusions, the Task Force analyzed the results from school systems currently requiring weekly amounts of physical activity or education.

In November 2008, the Task Force submitted its report. Authorization for the Task Force ended June 30, 2009.
