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 433 - Local Government Tort Claims Act - Limits on Liability.

This emergency bill clarifies that the monetary limits on the liability of a local government under the Local Government Tort Claims Act apply to claims against local governments when named as defendants.

House Bill 942, 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 433.

Parris N. Glendening
