Did Fallin botch her veto?

During yesterday's meeting of the House Special Investigative Committee, looking into the Oklahoma Department of Health scandal, State Rep. Josh Cockroft (R-Wanette) turned up an interesting question: did Governor Fallin botch her veto of the special session budget bill to the point that no agency is currently operating with a legal budget?

Fallin's veto of the measure left off a crucial word that Cockroft, chairman of the committee, is concerned might have had the effect of vetoing the entire budget, which would create a massive legal crisis if it's the case.
