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 208.

This bill prohibits the Maryland Department of the Environment from issuing a sewage sludge storage facility permit until the facility meets all relevant zoning and land use requirements of the county where the storage facility is to be located.

House Bill 165, 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 208.

Parris N. Glendening
