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 264 - Memorial Day - Moment of Remembrance.

This bill requires the Governor each year to issue a proclamation encouraging the citizens of the State of Maryland to observe a moment of remembrance at 2:00 p.m. on Memorial Day to commemorate the heroic acts and efforts of Marylanders who have served and died in the United States armed forces.

House Bill 111, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on April 25, 2000, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 264.

Parris N. Glendening
