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 502.

This bill extends the time for providing matching funds and alters the purposes of the proceeds of the bonds for the Bethesda Academy of the Performing Arts.

House Bill 266, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on April 27, 1999, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 502.

Parris N. Glendening
