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 70 - Montgomery County - Kensington Community Center Loan of 1993.

This bill changes the name of the project from the "Kensington Senior Community Center Loan of 1993" to the "Kensington Community Center Loan of 1993." The bill also extends the deadline by which the Mayor and Town Council of the Town of Kensington, as grantee, have to provide matching funds from June 1, 1995 to June 1, 2004.

House Bill 108, 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 70.

Parris N. Glendening
