                                  from

                   THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

                              transmitting

    NOTIFICATION OF THE VETO OF H.J. RES. 64, THE ``MAKING FURTHER 
     CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2010, AND FOR OTHER 
                               PURPOSES''




  January 13, 2010.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on Appropriations and ordered to be printed
                       Memorandum of Disapproval

    The enactment of H.R. 3326 (Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2010, Public Law 111-118), which was signed 
into law on December 19, 2009, has rendered the enactment of 
H.J. Res. 64 (Continuing Appropriations, FY 2010) unnecessary. 
Accordingly, I am withholding my approval from the bill. (The 
Pocket Veto Case, 279 U.S. 655 (1929)).
    To leave no doubt that the bill is being vetoed as 
unnecessary legislation, in addition to withholding my 
signature, I am also returning H.J. Res. 64 to the Clerk of the 
House of Representatives, along with this Memorandum of 
Disapproval.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, December 30, 2009.
