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 548 - Sales and Use Tax - Supplies Supporting Breast-Feeding.

This bill exempts from the sales and use tax equipment that is manufactured for the purpose of initiating, supporting or sustaining breast-feeding.

Senate Bill 252, 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 548.

Parris N. Glendening
