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 847 - State Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators - Sunset Extension and Program Evaluation.
This bill extends the sunset date for the State Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators from July 1, 2003 to July 1, 2013 and requires another sunset evaluation on or before July 1, 2012. The bill also provides that a nursing home administrator may not supervise, direct, induce or help an unlicensed individual to practice as a nursing home administrator.
Senate Bill 718, 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 847.
