  • The president gets the bill. If he likes it, he can sign it, and it becomes law. If he does not, he vetoes it. It then goes back to congress, where a 2/3 majority votes to override the veto, making it a law. If they can't find time for the bill in 10 days, it becomes a law if congress is in session. If not, the bill is automatically vetoed, known as a pocket veto.
