Update 5:20 p.m.
ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed a bill cutting the state budget more than $900 million Thursday night, his first major action since taking office.
Democrat Dayton, sworn in on Jan. 3, rejected the Republican-written bill that would have cut $824 million from the next two-year state budget and $100 million from the budget that ends June 30. Republicans said it was the first step in fixing a $6.2 billion deficit.
