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 265.

This bill requires the Harford County Board of Education to transfer any land, school site, or building that is no longer needed for school purposes to Harford County, Maryland. Under current law, the board of education must transfer such properties to the county council.

House Bill 352, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on April 27, 1999, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 265.

Parris N. Glendening
