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 333 - Register of Wills - Salary.

This bill alters a limit on the maximum salary that the Board of Public Works may set for a register of wills and provides that the Act does not apply to the salary or compensation of an incumbent register of wills. Senate Bill 284, 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 333.

Very truly yours,
Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.
