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 537 - Law Enforcement Officers' Pension System - Membership - Martin State Airport Firefighters.

This bill includes firefighters for the Martin State Airport employed by the Military Department in the Law Enforcement Officers' Pension System.

Senate Bill 533, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign House Bill 537.

Parris N. Glendening
