What happens after President veto?
Simply so, what happens after a veto?
If the Congress overrides the veto by a two-thirds vote in each house, it becomes law without the President's signature. Otherwise, the bill fails to become law unless it is presented to the President again and the President chooses to sign it.
Likewise, when was the last time a presidential veto was overridden? Since 1969, Congress has been more successful, overriding about 1 out of every 5 (18.3%) regular vetoes. See Table 1. Of the 37 vetoes exercised by President Clinton, all but one were regular vetoes, which were returned to Congress and subject to congressional override votes.
In this regard, what is the effect of a president's veto?
The President, however, can influence and shape legislation by a threat of a veto. By threatening a veto, the President can persuade legislators to alter the content of the bill to be more acceptable to the President. Congress can override a veto by passing the act by a two-thirds vote in both the House and the Senate.
How many vetoes does a president get?
