The Honorable Casper R. Taylor, Jr.
Speaker of the House
State House
Annapolis MD 21401

Dear Mr. Speaker:

In accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, I have today vetoed House Bill 235.

This bill extends the sunset date for provisions of the Business Occupations and Professions Article related to the State Board of Barbers from July 1, 2001 to July 1, 2011.

Senate Bill 216, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on May 13, 1999, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign House Bill 235.

Parris N. Glendening
