State’s highest court backs Dayton’s veto of Legislature’s funding

media frenzy

The Minnesota Supreme Court on Thursday upheld Gov. Mark Dayton’s line-item veto of the Legislature’s 2018-19 operating budget.

Capping a legal battle that began in June, the ruling found that Dayton acted within his constitutional authority when he exercised the line-item veto in an effort to bring lawmakers back to the negotiating table over a handful of bills he had signed into law.

“We had hoped [the Supreme Court] would end this debacle, but they have not,” House Speaker Kurt Daudt (R-Crown) said during a Legislative Coordinating Commission meeting.

Thursday’s ruling deals a major blow to legislative leaders who are scrambling to fund the House and Senate until the 2018 session convenes Feb. 20. Since lawmakers have access to other sources of funding, the court found the governor did not violate the state’s constitution by effectively abolishing the Legislature.
