The Honorable Michael E. Busch
Speaker of the House
State House
Annapolis, MD 21401

Dear Mr. Speaker:

In accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, I have today vetoed House Bill 230 - Baltimore County Code - 2003 Edition - Legalization.

This bill legalizes the 2003 Edition of the Baltimore County Code, and any supplement, to the extent to which that code or supplement contains laws enacted by the General Assembly.

Senate Bill 134, 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 House Bill 230.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
