    After being introduced, a bill is referred to the appropriate committee for review. In that case, the bill becomes law even though the president vetoed it. For Congress to pass a bill, both houses must pass exactly the same bill. If Congress adjourns before 10 days are up and the President takes no action, then the bill dies and Congress may not vote to override. It includes the House of Representatives and the Senate Congress. For anyone interested in the year history of the House, this is a great place to start.

    The House of Representatives are elected every two years. For each house to pass a bill, more than half of its members must vote in favor of passing the bill. Each bill must be passed by both the Senate and the House of Representatives. The first Congress is an idealistic place—the beating heart of American democracy.

    The Senate holds additional powers relating to treaties and the appointments of executive and judicial officials. The legislative branch, also called the congress, consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate. In addition, only one-third of the Senate stands for election during an even year. The complex system can be outlined as follows: Checks of the Legislative Checks on the Executive Power to override vetoes Power to confirm the President's appointment of a Vice President when a vacancy in the Vice Presidency occurs Power to tax and allocate tax revenues for executive activities Oversight and investigation of executive activities Senate Power to approve treaties Senate Power to approve Presidential nominees House Impeachment, or accusation of a federal official for bribery, treason, or another high crime Senate Trial of Impeachment Power to set size and structure of courts Senate Power to approve Presidential nominees for judgeships House Impeachment.

The Senate, with its tradition of unlimited debate, fancies itself the "world's greatest deliberative body.

Congress and the Executive Branch: Balancing Power

People will disagree with the fact that the legislative branch has the most power. There are also six nonvoting members representing the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the other four territories of the United States. The consent of the House of Representatives is also necessary for the ratification of trade agreements and the confirmation of the Vice President.

By Section. The Legislative Branch is the part of the government that writes up and votes on laws, also called legislation. InTennessee returned Johnson to the same Senate seat he had earlier occupied from The congress has the power to pass laws. The House of Representatives consists of elected members that are divided among the fifty states in proportion to their population.

Each chamber then votes again to approve the conference report. Members will speak for or against the bill and then the Congress will vote. Who decides how much of your paycheck gets taken away for taxes?

And is it fair for so many of us—like Mark Twain—to view the legislative branch with such cynicism and disdain? They only have implied power. Conversely, if a president receives a bill and does nothing within 10 days while Congress is in session, the bill automatically becomes law.

The Speaker of the House is the leader of the House of Representatives. Government Oversight Another important function of the legislative branch is oversight of the executive branch. Before the ratification of the 17th Amendment inthe Senators were chosen by the state legislatures, rather than the people.
