What happen if both houses of congress pass a bill and the president does nothing and congress is at recess?

In that situation the bill is considered vetoed and is of no effect. This is called the President's "pocket veto." For a bill to become law the President must do two things. He must sign it and return it to Congress within 10 days of passage. A bill, whether signed by the President or not, cannot be returned to Congress if it is in recess. If Congress recesses before the President signs and returns the bill it cannot be returned; therefore the two requirements for a bill to become law cannot be met. When this happens, if Congress wants the bill passed, Congress will introduce another version of the bill, pass it and send it to the President who would then have to formally veto it or sign and return it.
