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 472 - Dorchester County - Economic Development Bonds.

This bill authorizes the County Commissioners of Dorchester County to issue up to $3 million in general obligation bonds for the renovation and repair of public school facilities, improvements to Woods Road and other economic development projects in the county.

House Bill 428, 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 472.

Parris N. Glendening
