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 672 - Dorchester County - Sheriff - Salary.

This bill establishes the salary for the Sheriff of Dorchester County for specified calendar years, and provides that the Act does not apply to the incumbent.

House Bill 1444, 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 672.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
