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 556 - Port of Cambridge - Operation and Maintenance by Maryland Port Administration - Jurisdiction.

This bill repeals the requirement that the Maryland Port Administration operate and maintain the Port of Cambridge. It gives the Maryland Port Administration the authority to sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of the port facility in accordance with State procurement law.

House Bill 572, 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 556.

Parris N. Glendening
