Note - Governor Dayton issued his veto letter on May 19, before receiving the bill, but did not actually veto the bill until May 21.
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.
