The Honorable Michael E. Busch
Speaker of the House
Annapolis MD 21401
Dear Mr. Speaker:
In accordance with Article II, Section 17 of the Maryland Constitution, today I have vetoed House Bill 443 - Housing Authority of Baltimore City - Collective Bargaining.
This bill authorizes collective bargaining powers for the Housing Authority of Baltimore City.
Senate Bill 590, 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 443.
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
