There can be over 7000 law proposed each year but only a handful ofthem will make it pass the initial committee. A bill must pass thecommittee before it is consider by either the house or the senate.
Answer . None. The President of the United States does not pass laws, that is the job of the legislative branch. The President has the ability to veto laws that the Congress has passed, but he can be over ruled by a 2/3rds majority.. Actually, it is the Presidential act of signing a bill passe…d by Congress that transforms that bill into law . It is emphatically the province of the President to pass laws and not Congress. What the Congress passes are bills , which have no legal authority unless passed by the President, or unless Congress over rules a Presidential veto with a 2/3 super majority vote.. As to your original question, the number of laws passed in America probably varies year to year. (MORE)
Answer . None. Laws are passed by Congress and approved or vetoed by the President.

When a bill is introduced in a legislature, it is referred to acommittee of that house, where the members if that committee and ofsub-committees working under it will consider the bill and whataction to take on it. Each committee will hold public hearings in abill that has been referred to it, will …consider amendments to thebill, and ultimately will decide whether to recommend to the House(or Senate) that they vote Yes or No on the bill or, the committeemay be able to stall action on the bill and "pigeonhole" it. TheHouse and Senate will follow the recommendations of theircommittees in a very large percentage of the votes on bills. Eachhouse of Congress must have a majority of members present toconduct official business; this is called a quorum. When a bill isbeing voted upon in either house of Congress, a majority of Yesvotes out of all the votes being cast is required to pass the bill.The bill must be passed in identical form by a majority in eachhouse, and then it is sent to the President. If he signs the bill,it will become a law. If he exercises his right to veto the bill,he will refuse to sign it, give his reasons, and send it back tothe house in which it was first introduced. Congress has the powerto override a Presidential veto if they can muster a 2/3 vote ineach house, but this is extremely hard to do. If the Presidentneither signs nor vetoes the bill within 10 days after he receivesit, one of two things will happen, depending upon whether Congressis still in session at the end of the 10 days after the Presidentreceived the bill. If Congress is still in session, the bill willbecome a law without the President's signature. If Congress hadadjourned during the 10 days, the bill will not become a law. Thislatter situation is nicknamed the "pocket veto", because thePresident figuratively speaking puts the bill in his pocket andignores it. The theory behind the pocket veto possibility is thatthe President should always have 10 days to decide whether to signa bill or not, and if Congress has adjourned before the 10 days areup, it means the President is unable to send the bill back toCongress with a formal veto.

Not enough that matter. This country is falling apart rapidly, and all Congress can do, it seems, is vote on how much they are going to earn next year and cut social security and medicare benefits. Those of us who are approaching those "golden years" are gaining more gray hairs every day, horrified …by the prospect of not being able to collect our earned payments and benefits, or make a decent living. Congress members do not collect social security - they have their own retirement benefits - millions of dollars a year income guaranteed for life. . ________________________________________________________________________ .

It is completely impossible to say how many autistic babies are born each year in the US - firstly because there is no test for autism in babies, secondly because many autistic people do not receive diagnosis, and thirdly because many autistic people do not disclose their diagnosis or allow their di…agnosis to go onto their records. Currently diagnostic rates in children in the US is at 1 in 88 children - as a note this does not mean that autism is on the rise, this means that more children are being diagnosed due to increased awareness of autism and better diagnostics.
