The Honorable Casper R. Taylor, Jr.
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 98 - Sales and Use Tax - Exemptions - Energy for Residential Condominiums.

This bill exempts from the sales and use tax sales of electricity, steam or artificial or natural gas for use in residential condominiums.

Senate Bill 14, which was passed by the General Assembly and signed by me, accomplishes the same purpose. Therefore, it is not necessary for me to sign House Bill 98.

Parris N. Glendening
