Cuomo cuts through budget

Gov. Andrew Cuomo made 202 line item vetoes to the state budget late Wednesday night.

I haven't gone through the vetoes yet, but the entire list is available below.

According to the sate Division of Budget the vetoes were for the following reason:

- Three were added back improperly

- Eight were unconstitutional alterations where the original appropriation will remain

- Four were new "007" member items, which come from repurposed member items

- One was a duplicate item

- Eleven were spent for intended purpose and contractual obligations meant

- One hundred twenty were cashed out and no money was left for program

- Fortyfive were items first appropriated in 2005 or earlier for which disbursements have not been made since 2005

- Ten were for federal items where federal funding has expired
