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 19 - Motor Vehicle Administration - Chesapeake Bay Commemorative License Plate Program - Extension.

This bill extends the Chesapeake Bay commemorative license plate program to July 1, 2002.

House Bill 169, 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 Senate Bill 19.

Parris N. Glendening
