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 277 - Harford County - Appointment of Deputy State's Attorneys.

This bill increases the number of deputy State's Attorneys that the Harford County State's Attorney may appoint from one to two.

House Bill 377, 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 277.

Parris N. Glendening
