President Mori line item vetoes $4.84 million from Congressional projects totaling $5.1 million

FSMIS (June 26, 2014): In a Congressional project bill totaling $5.1 million, Federated States of Micronesia President Manny Mori vetoed nearly all items except for a funding of $260,000 for some administrative costs of the 8th Micronesian Games.

In providing a detailed statement on his decision to veto most of the budget items, President Mori raised that in a ten-years period, Congress has appropriated a total of $40 million for public projects without any "verifiable report" showing sustainable, tangible benefits. In the last five months, Congress appropriated $10 million for public projects.

Consult the President's veto message linked below for detail.
