Sen. Torrey Westrom: Dayton's line item veto good for rural interests
ST. PAUL -- Recently, Governor Mark Dayton signed the Omnibus Legacy Bill, House File 1183, but line item vetoed the section regarding the Metropolitan Regional Parks funding.

His veto was in line with the recommendations of the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council, made up of multiple citizens and legislators.
