dean 1995 T O R I A L Line item veto Measure will allow president to eliminate spending items from appropriations bills Finally the President and Congress were able to agree on a bill A line item veto was signed into law this week by the president after receiving bipartisan support in Congress for the measure The bill a impart of the OOPs Contract With has also been support sjed by die president throughout his Administration It was pushed by Presidents Reagan and Bush and finally thank fully its law Hie measure s the President to veto specific spending measures pork barrel items without vetoing an entire appropriations bill Fortythree governors have lineitem veto power in their respective states and its long overdue at the federal level One thing the lineitem veto wifi mean is that a sitting President will not have the ability to shrug off criticism about huge appropriations bills signed into law Before presidents would hold up their hands and mere was nothing they could do short of vetoing the whole bill when outrageous spending items were included in a bill That excuse wont be there anymore Just as our Congressman inshould be held accountable for the appropriations measures passed and to the President the President will now be accountable for using and not using his lineitem veto power While legitimate arguments can be made that the lineitem veto sig Rep Larnar Smith rightly pointed out that a twothirds majority in Congress can still override that veto Those upset with the lineitem veto may also have other reasons to despair No longer will their frivolous spending measures often designed to jgain favor among their constituents back home go unnoticed Democratic Sen Robert Byrd of West Virginia made an impassioned speech on the Senate floor denouncing the lineitem veto as a pow er grab by the president To most Senate watchers however Byrd is known as the porkbar rel king tunneling millions of dollars in federal spending projects to West Virginia Hes beloved in that state which makes sense con sidering the money hes directed there Well see if that continues in the linetime veto era Todays editorial was written by Doug Write The New Braunfels
