Gov. Andrew Cuomo late Thursday night formally announced his line item vetoes in the 2017-18 state budget, striking 154 individual lines of spending from the plan.

The measures Cuomo has vetoed underscore just how much of the budget is, in some respects, a copy-and-paste document. The vetoes included 13 items that were re-appropriations and have been fully expended.

Cuomo also vetoed 75 items in the budget that are more than seven years old and have had their funding disbursed.

An additional 58 appropriations were for areas that have already received enough state funding within agency spending. And eight measures were deemed to be unconstitutional.
