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 855 - Harford County - Alcoholic Beverages - Stadium License - Sale of Liquor.

This bill alters the privileges of the stadium (on-sale) alcoholic beverages license in Harford County to include liquor to be sold during events and increases the license fee from $5,000 to $10,000.

House Bill 874, 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 855.
