90th Legislature, 2017 1st Special Session SS Chap 4 SF1 5/30/2017 Omnibus state government appropriations bill.
Note - On July 19, 2017 Ramsey County Judge John Guthmann struck down Governor Mark Dayton's veto of the state House and Senate budgets. Governor Dayton appealed that decision. A Minnesota Supreme Court order on September 8, 2017 required the Governor and the Legislature to select a mediator to assist in resolving the issues regarding the governor's line item vetoes. On September 12, 2017, retired Hennepin County Judge Rick Solum was selected as mediator. After two days of discussions, the mediator declared that the parties had reached an impasse and ended the mediation on September 22, 2017. In a 5-1 decision issued November 16, 2017, the Minnesota Supreme Court upheld Governor Dayton's line-item veto of the Legislature's operating budget, overturning the lower court decision that deemed Dayton's action unconstitutional.

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.
