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 833 - Insurance - Regulation of Insurance Producers - Written Documentation of Appointment.

This bill authorizes an insurer to cancel a specified policy of homeowner's insurance under specified circumstances; and generally relating to the cancellation of a policy of homeowner's insurance.

Senate Bill 533, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me on May 26, 2004, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign House Bill 833.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
