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 376 - Garrett County - Gross Weight of Vehicles - County Roads.

This bill authorizes the County Commissioners of Garrett County to establish the authorized gross maximum weight of a specified vehicle using any part of Table Rock Road and Wilson Run Road that is owned and maintained by the county. It also establishes that a specified gross maximum weight may not exceed 87,000 pounds. House Bill 466, 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 376.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
