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 117 - Public Service Commission - Hazardous Liquid Pipelines.

The bill authorizes the Public Service Commission to act on behalf of the U.S. Department of Transportation to implement the federal Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Act with respect to intrastate pipelines in Maryland that carry hazardous liquids.

House Bill 1422, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 117.

Parris N. Glendening
