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 140 - Maryland Prepaid College Trust and Maryland College Investment Plan.

This bill enhances the Maryland Higher Education Investment Program and encourages more families to prepare for future higher education expenses. The bill also creates The Maryland College Investment Plan.

House Bill 11, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me today, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 140.

Parris N. Glendening
