1931 - Governor Floyd Olson
|Our library records prior to 1939 are incomplete; there may be vetoes that we are not aware of.|
||Full or Line (# of lines)
||Pocket Veto An act providing for supervision and regulation of transportation of persons and property for hire as common carriers on any public highway in this state by motor vehicle, and for the safe operation thereof.
||Handling the sewage of South St. Paul and potential pollution of the Mississippi River
||A bill for an act to divide the State of Minnesota into nine Congressional Districts.
Note - Governor Floyd B. Olson vetoed H.F. 1456, but there was some question as to whether his veto could apply to a redistricting plan. The decision went to court and his veto ultimately stood. See "History of Minnesota Congressional Redistricting", 2018 for further details.
Unlike counting full vetoes, the counting of line item vetoes is
inherently arbitrary. Library staff used these guidelines. If a lump-sum appropriation was broken down into several component items and
the entire lump sum was vetoed, it was counted as one item.
Appropriations divided into separate amounts for two fiscal years
were also counted as one item.
