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 721 - Department of Aging - Innovations in Aging Services Program.

This bill creates the Innovations in Aging Services Program within the Department of Aging and establishes a 14-member Innovations in Aging Services Advisory Council.

Senate Bill 535, 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 721.

Parris N. Glendening
