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 386 - Baltimore City - Tax Sales - Notice.

This bill decreases from four to two the number of times notice of a property tax sale must be advertised in Baltimore City. Notice of the tax sale must also be posted on the city's website four weeks prior to the sale. The newspaper notice must include a statement that the notice will be posted on the City's website along with instructions on how the public can access the website.

House Bill 800, 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 386.
