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 681 - Commission of Juvenile Justice Jurisdiction - Extension of Sunset.

This bill extends the termination date for the Commission on Juvenile Justice Jurisdiction from September 30, 2000 to September 30, 2001. The commission must submit a supplemental report updating the results of its investigation and study, together with any resulting policy recommendations, to the Governor and the General Assembly by September 30, 2001.

Senate Bill 614, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on May 11, 2000, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign House Bill 681.

Parris N. Glendening
