HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Gov. Steve Bullock has vetoed nine more bills and issued a line-item veto for a tenth from the recently ended legislative session.

One would have required Fish, Wildlife and Parks to dedicate up to 20 percent of the price of a land purchase to maintenance for that particular piece of land. Bullock says that denies the agency the flexibility to use that money for its biggest needs.

Another would have required additional public scoping before FWP could make large land purchases.

Another called for an increase to the coal-severance tax allocation. Bullock says that would have decreased the amount available to fix the public employees’ pension system.

Other bills dealt with renewable resource tax classifications and credits, school grants and accreditation standards and Medicaid fraud.
