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 1075 - Coordination of Immunization Services Act of 2001.

This bill creates the Immunet Program within the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The Immunet Program is a computerized information and reminder system used to improve the timely and appropriate delivery of immunizations.

Senate Bill 626, 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 1075.

Parris N. Glendening
