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 610.

This bill authorizes the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services to post on the Internet its central registry of individuals convicted of certain crimes against children, sexually violent or other sexual offenses, in accordance with regulations established by the Department.

House Bill 229, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on May 13, 1999, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 610.

Parris N. Glendening
