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 450 - Cecil County - Dog and Kennel Licenses.

This bill excludes Cecil County from specified provisions of law relating to dog and kennel licenses and requires that the fees, terms, and forms for dog and kennel licenses in Cecil County be determined by the County Commissioners of Cecil County. House Bill 852, 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 450.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
