1858 VETOES


SENATE BILL NO. 165


May 6, 1953


Honorable George W. Della
President of the Senate
State House
Annapolis, Maryland


Dear Mr. President:


Senate Bill No. 165 is a companion measure to Senate Bill
No. 164 and would relieve from toll charges on the Susque-
hanna River Bridge, motor vehicles owned by either Cecil
or Harford Counties or agents thereof, or vehicles used as
an ambulance or fire truck operated for public use on a non-

It would consequently be in violation of the terms of the
trust indenture dated October 1, 1948, whereby there can
be no reduction of tolls on this bridge until at least two years
after the opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The At-

unconstitutional as impairing the obligation of a contract.

It should be noted that provision has heretofore been made
by agreement of the State Roads Commission and the Trus-
tees whereby fire apparatus and ambulances belonging to
fire companies cross the bridge without payment of tolls.

Respectfully,

(s) THEODORE R. MCKELDIN,

Governor
