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 124.

This bill prohibits an employer from depriving crime victims or victims' representatives of employment because of their rightful attendance at criminal or juvenile proceedings.

House Bill 303, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on May 27, 1999, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 124.

Parris N. Glendening
