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.
