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 852 - Maryland Condominium Act - Meetings of Council of Unit Owners - Quorum.

This bill provides for alternative quorum provisions for meetings of the council of unit owners of a condominium.

Senate Bill 258, 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 852.

Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
