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 114 - Clerks of Circuit Courts - Auditor's Reports and Bonds - Recording and Indexing.

This bill repeals the requirement that each circuit court clerk record, index and maintain audit reports of the distribution of proceeds of a sale of real or personal property if ratified by the court and all bonds in any proceeding in the court.

Senate Bill 199, 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 114.
