The Honorable Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr.
President of the Senate
State House
Annapolis MD 21401

Dear Mr. President:

In accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, I have today vetoed Senate Bill 323.

This bill requires the Maryland Department of the Environment to provide public access to all "ambient air monitoring data" through the Internet by January 1, 2000.

House Bill 502, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on May 13, 1999, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 323.

Parris N. Glendening
