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 525 - Baltimore County - Property Tax - Neighborhood Preservation and Stabilization Credits.

This bill extends until June 30, 2005 the qualifying period for participation in the Neighborhood Preservation and Stabilization Act program in designated areas of Baltimore County.

Senate Bill 462, 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 525.
