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 440 - Frederick County - State's Attorney - Salary.

This bill increases the salary of the Frederick County State's Attorney from 80 percent to 90 percent of the salary of a judge of the District Court of Maryland beginning with the next term of office.

House Bill 367, 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 440.
