I may be wrong but this is my understanding of the Line Item Veto:
Please correct me if I'm wrong.....

Lets say Congressman Jones wants to enact a seatbelt bill through congress......When a bill enters the respective houses of congress, a lot of congressmen will say I'll only vote yes on that bill if this stipulation is added as a piggy back..... example: Congressman Smith wants to legalize partial birth abortions, so he places a line stipulation that if this bill passes so will his bill.....
The line item veto is a way for the checks and balances to pass a law/bill into action without passing the piggyback stipulations.......

The line veto bill has its good points and it has its faults..... but lets not get into that here.
