Marvin Mandel, Governor                       1981

This bill amends the alcoholic beverages laws relating to the
selling or delivering of alcoholic beverages on Sundays in Worcester

I have been informed by the sponsor of this bill that he in-
tended to increase the penalties for anyone convicted of selling or
delivering alcoholic beverages on Sundays in Worcester County.
However, it is possible to construe this bill as completely prohibiting
the sale of alcoholic beverages in Worcester County on Sundays.
Since this was not the sponsor's intent, the sponsor has requested
that the bill be vetoed.

Consequently, I have decided to veto House Bill 1440 at the re-
quest of the sponsor.


/s/ Marvin Mandel,


House Bill No. 1457—State Agency Budgets

AN ACT to repeal and re-enact, with amendments, subsection
245(c) of Article 41 of the Annotated Code of Maryland (1971
Replacement Volume), title "Governor—Executive and Administra-
tive Departments," subtitle "Administrative Procedure Act," to pro-
hibit the adoption or amendment of rules which increase expendi-
tures beyond budgetary allowance by an agency without the ap-
proval of the General Assembly or its designee.

June 9, 1972.

Honorable Thomas Hunter Lowe
Speaker of the House of Delegates
State House
Annapolis, Maryland 21404

Dear Mr. Speaker:

In accordance with Article II, Section 17, of the Maryland Con-
stitution, I have today vetoed House Bill 1457.

This bill would preclude an executive agency from adopting or
amending rules in such manner as to increase its expenditures be-
yond the agency's budgetary allowance without the approval of the
General Assembly or its designee.

I fully appreciate and support the important role played by the
General Assembly in our budgetary processes and share its concern
over any departures from the budget enacted by it. We must all
recognize, however, that State operations and programs, involving
budgetary considerations, are becoming increasingly affected by ac-
tions of the Federal Government and by State and Federal court
decisions over which the legislative and executive branches of the
State Government have little or no control.

We have, in the past few years, seen too many examples of
changes in federal laws or regulations requiring immediate amend-
ments to State rules and regulations necessitating increased ex-
penditures. Similarly, we have seen judicial decisions having the
same effect. Unfortunately, these imposed changes often occur dur-
ing a time of the year when the General Assembly is not in session.
