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 864 - Anne Arundel County - Alcoholic Beverages Licenses - Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

This bill allows specified persons at Baltimore-Washington International Airport to hold one airport concessionaire license for multiple locations within the airport terminal building, even if they already hold specified other alcoholic beverages licenses.

Senate Bill 488, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me April 13, 2004, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign House Bill 864.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
