The Honorable Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr.
President of the Senate
Annapolis MD 21401
Dear Mr. President:
In accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, today I have vetoed Senate Bill 40 - Election Law - Study Commission on Public Funding of Campaigns in Maryland - Sunset Extension.
This bill extends the termination and reporting dates for the Study Commission on Public Funding of Campaigns in Maryland.
House Bill 29, 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 40.
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
