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 161 - Election Law - Baltimore County Republican Party Central Committee.

This bill changes the method of electing members of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee by providing for the election of four members from each Baltimore County council district and one chairman to be elected at-large. It expands the membership of the Central Committee from 24 members to 29.

House Bill 1025, 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 161.

Parris N. Glendening
