DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad has vetoed tens of millions of dollars in state spending that legislators had approved, with some of the biggest cuts targeting environmental protection and recreation projects.

Branstad trimmed state money for the Resource Enhancement and Protection fund, which helps pay for trails, parks and other outdoor recreation, to $16 million. The Legislature had approved $25 million.

Branstad also cut $18.6 million for construction at Iowa State University's agricultural and biosystems engineering complex, $14 million for routine maintenance or major repairs of state buildings and $8 million for renovation of the University of Iowa's dental science building. He also cut another $10 million for projects ranging from university buildings to radon testing at schools.
