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 514 - Natural Resources Recreational and Commercial Crabbing.

This bill prohibits the Department of Natural Resources from adopting certain commercial crabbing regulations and establishes new provisions relating to the establishment of a recreational crabbing license and a recreational crabbing boat license.

House Bill 772, 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 514.

Parris N. Glendening
