The Honorable Casper R. Taylor, Jr.
Speaker of the House
Annapolis MD 21401
Dear Mr. Speaker:
In accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, I have today vetoed House Bill 614 - Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision.
This bill repeals Maryland's Uniform Act for Out-of-State Parolee Supervision and replaces it with the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision. The bill establishes the purpose of the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision and provides for the creation of an interstate compact commission and a State council. The bill specifies the powers, duties, and membership requirements of the commission and the State council. The bill also provides for appointment of a compact administrator.
Senate Bill 85, 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 614.
Parris N. Glendening
