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 391 - Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Foundation - Easement Sale Application.

This bill repeals the requirement that an application to sell an easement must be submitted to the Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Foundation by July 1 of the fiscal year in which the application is to be considered, and provides instead that the application deadline be determined by the board of trustees.

House Bill 999, 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 391.
