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 715 - Fraud - Telecommunication Service Providers.

This bill prohibits the possession, use or transfer of unlawful telecommunications devices and access devices, and the theft of telecommunication service.

Senate Bill 379, 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 715.

Parris N. Glendening
