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, today I have vetoed Senate Bill 650 - Vehicle Laws - Local Regulation of Parking - Motorcycles.

This bill prohibits a political subdivision, in the exercise of its authority to regulate parking, from adopting or enforcing an ordinance or regulation that prohibits the parking of more than one motorcycle in a space served by a single parking meter.

House Bill 923, 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 650.

Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
