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, today I have vetoed House Bill 99 - Estates - Modified Administration - Final Report and Distribution - Extension.

This bill creates provisions by which the initial time periods for filing a final report and for making distribution of an estate in a modified administration may be extended.

Senate Bill 310, 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 99.

Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
