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 404 - Municipal Corporations - Annexations - Limitations on Uses of Land and Densities of Development.

This bill authorizes a municipal corporation to impose specified limitations on the uses of land or densities of development, in an annexation agreement, on the zoning or rezoning of land under specified circumstances.

House Bill 912, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on May 11, 2004, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign Senate Bill 404.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
