Budget Monitor -- The Governor's FY 2006 Veto Message

July 7, 2005 On June 30th Governor Romney signed the fiscal year 2006 budget and issued his line item vetoes. The amount vetoed - $110 million - was less than one half of one percent of the total budget. While many of the vetoes will have real effects on individual's lives - by reducing resources to fight homelessness, denying dental benefits to women with young children, and eliminating funding for small raises for low-income human service workers - overall the Governor did not recommend deep cuts beyond those already implemented over the past five years.
