Veto Explanation:  I am vetoing this item to make a technical change to the line item structure because insufficient revenue is available to support this appropriation until legislation is enacted transferring this sheriff's department to the commonwealth. It is also inappropriate to fund a county sheriff's department entirely with state funds. I am proposing supplemental appropriations today to provide state funding upon enactment of such transfer legislation.
