A bill (S.B. 117) that would have limited the use of Social Security numbers by companies has been vetoed by Maryland Governor Robert L. Ehrlich.

Opponents of the bill had argued that it would have prohibited companies from using the Social Security numbers of consumers on electronic transmissions even with the owner's approval.
