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.
