The Honorable Michael E. Busch
Speaker of the House
Annapolis MD 21401
Dear Mr. Speaker:
In accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, today I have vetoed House Bill 234 - Local Fire and Police System - Reemployment of Retirees.
House Bill 234 exempts from a specified offset of an allowance specified retirees of the Local Fire and Police System who are reemployed by specified employers and alters the requirements for the reemployment of specified retirees of the Local Fire and Police System.
Senate Bill 92, 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 234.
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
