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 830 - Commissioner of Financial Regulation - Investigative and Enforcement Powers.

This bill authorizes the Commissioner of Financial Regulation to conduct investigations to determine whether a person has violated a provision of law, regulation, rule or order over which the Commissioner has jurisdiction. The bill authorizes the Commissioner to administer oaths, subpoena witnesses and require the production of documents for an investigation House Bill 727, 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 830.
