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 503 - Comptroller - Local Government Audit Requirements.

This bill alters the time period for which the Legislative Auditor may authorize an incorporated city or town with annual revenues of less than $50,000 to have an audit from once every two years to once every four years.

House Bill 1181, 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 503.

Parris N. Glendening
