veto a bill passed by congress
A bill is "enacted" on the same day it is signed by the President. The "effective date," however is written into the text of the bill. Some bill are effective immediately and some Congress picks a later date - could be 2 months or a year or more.
Nobody wants to tell the truth. The Patriots Act was passed in only one month.
The common system of measurement in the US is the Imperial system. There was a bill for metrification of measurements that was passed by Congress, but it does not dictate how long the process should take.
No. He can veto a bill however. You said a law that congress has passed. I take it that they must have passed the law over his veto or a previous President must have signed it. Is that correct? The Presidents cannot rewrite a bill, but many will write a message to Congress explaining the reason for vetoing a bill. This way Congress has the ability to rewrite and vote for a bill that meets with the President's approval, rather than trying to override the veto or guess at what type of law will be accepted by the President.
Depends on the bill. But most of the time, it does take a while for the bill to be passed. Some can go threw faster than others.
Once the President receives a measure passed by Congress he can sign the bill into law. If it is not signed and Congress adjourns before ten days of the President receiving the bill, it does not become a law. This is called a pocket veto. The President can veto the bill, send it back to Congress with his reasons for the veto. If Congress overrides the veto with a two-third majority vote, the bill becomes law.
about one month
The moment it is signed.
An action that Congress can take when the president vetoes a bill is that if it is vetoed it goes back from where the bill was once started and based on a 2/3 majority vote it will be passed if not it is discard and the subject wont come up till a few years later when it is introduced again.
over 2 years
The four actions that the President may take upon receiving a measure passed by Congress include signing it into law, vetoing it, pocket veto the law, or he can do nothing. If he chooses to do nothing, the bill will eventually expire.

If Congress passed a bill, the president :can sign the bill making it an official law.He can veto (refuse to sign it) and send it back to congress with his objectionsHe can do nothing. In this case, the bill becomes law without his signature unless Congress adjourns before he has had ten days to study the bill. If he has not had the required ten days before Congress adjourns, the bill dies (called a pocket veto).
There is no such thing as an average time for the passage of a bill in Congress. The time required for the passage of a bill is dependent on many factors such as the bill being tied up in committee, the amount of debate, a veto by the president or filibusters.
The Constitution gave the president four options once a bill passes Congress. He/she can sign the Bill into a law, or take no action , or use a pocket veto a bill, or use a regular veto.
He may sign the bill or refuse to sign the bill (a veto) He May Also Make Laws. He May Make Changes In health Care Or Anything Else. He May NOT Change Any Laws.
The process for a pocket veto is the same as far as the passing of any other bill by the House and Senate. The bill is passed and then it is sent to the president for him to sign. That is where the the process changes. If the bill is presented to the president and under the constiution he has 10 days to sign or reject the bill. If the congress is not in cession then he can just take no action on the bill and then it is died due to the "Pocket Veto" It can only be used if congress is not on cession. If congress is in cession and the president does not act on a bill within the 10 days then it becomes law with the president having to sign it.
He can sign the bill into law, he can veto (reject it, sending it back to Congress) or do nothing with it. If it is vetoed, there is a chance that the Congress could overide his veto (if enough of them support the law) However, if he does nothing with it (known as a pocket veto) it can be held up until it is too late in the legislative session for them to try to override a veto.
It recommends that it should be passed or will be passed.

At this point, the bill is sent to the President. If he or she signs it, the bill becomes law. If the President vetoes the bill, it is sent back to congress. Now, it will take a 2/3 vote in both the Senate and House of Representatives to override the President's veto and make the bill a law. (It is very hard to get a 2/3 vote.) There is also a pocket veto where the President does nothing and just lets the bill die. (Look up pocket veto.)
