Governor Branstad Thursday vetoed millions of dollars in state spending the legislature approved last month, saying some of the appropriations are unsustainable.
He trimmed back the more than seven billion dollar state budget for the fiscal year that started this week.
The vetoes cut education spending for K-12 schools, community colleges, and the Regents Universities.
Education advocates call the K-12 cuts shameful. Regents President Bruce Rastetter says they’ll begin considering what tuition levels should be next spring.
