The president can choose not to act on the bill. If Congress is in session, the bill becomes law after 10 days.
Two-thirds (67%) of both Houses are needed to override the President’s veto.In the House: 369 needed for override. Senate: 67.
If Congress is not in session, the bill dies after 10 days. This is called a “pocket veto.”
If the bill has been vetoed and Congress is still in session, the bill then goes back to the house where is started, in our case, the Senate.If two-thirds of the Senate agree with the bill, that is called overriding the President's veto.
If the Senate votes to override the veto, then the House of Representatives must override it also. If both houses vote to override the veto, then the bill becomes a law without the President's approval.
