May 22, 1997

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 1022.

This bill alters the circumstances under which a fraternal benefit society is deemed to
have a representative form of government; increases the amount of a bond a society is
required to file with the Maryland Insurance Commissioner; increases the amount of
specified premiums a society must collect, provides that an amendment to the laws of a
society is deemed approved if not disapproved by the Commissioner within a specified
period of time, and alters various other requirements concerning fraternal benefit

Senate Bill 504, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on April 29,
1997, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign House
Bill 1022.


Parris N. Glendening
