What branch of government has veto power?
The US President, who is head of the Executive Branch of government, has sole authority to veto bills. Congress may override his (or her) veto if two-thirds of the members of both the Senate and House vote to do so; however, this is a rare occurence.
Describe one way the Executive Branch of your national government can check the power of the Legislative Branch?
The Legislative branch (Congress) can override a veto with a two-thirds vote from both the Senate and the House of Representatives. This power is a check on the Executive branch of government, and is designed to ensure the President doesn't overstep his (or her) authority or prevent vital legislation from passing into law.
There are checks and balances within the three branch government. The checks and balances the Legislative Branch has are : they have to approve appointments of Supreme Court Justices. [JUDICIAL BRANCH] They can also override a veto. (a president can veto a bill which is a rejection to the law.) [EXECUTIVE BRANCH] The checks and balances of the Executive Branch are: can veto bills( reject a law ) [LEGISLATIVE BRANCH]. Can nominate Supreme Court Justices…
No. The legislative branch can over-ride a veto of the Chief Executive (e.g.: President or Governor), but they have no power of veto over themselves. The Legislative Branch proposes the bills that are forwarded to the Executive Branch for the Executive's signature or veto. There is no provision in the Consltitution for the Legislative Branch to veto its own bill.
