Veto Override Procedure in the House and Senate

Summary

A bill or joint resolution that has been vetoed by the President can become law if two-thirds of the Members voting in the House and the Senate each agree to pass it over the President’s objection. The chambers act sequentially on vetoed measures; the House acts first on House-originated measures (H.R. and H.J. Res.) and the Senate acts first on Senate-originated measures (S. and S.J. Res.). If the first-acting chamber fails to override the veto, the measure dies and the other chamber does not consider it. The House typically considers the question of overriding a presidential veto under the hour rule, with time customarily controlled and allocated by the chair and ranking member of the committee with jurisdiction over the bill. The Senate usually considers the question of overriding a veto under the terms of a unanimous consent agreement.

Voting in the House

To override a veto, two-thirds of the Members voting, a quorum being present, must agree to repass the bill over the President’s objections. The Constitution requires that the vote be by the “yeas and nays,” which in the modern House means that Members’ votes will be recorded through the electronic voting system. The vote on the veto override is final because, in contrast to votes on most other questions in the House, a motion to reconsider the vote on the question of overriding a veto is not in order.

    I live in Florida and I sent my represenatives thi e-mail. At least the Senators my house represenative Bill Young web site contact me, did not work, so I called his DC office and told them how I felt.

    “This bill would have the effect of TURNING WHAT WAS ILLEGAL INTO LEGAL, POST FACT. A violation of the US CONSTITUTION!
    It is sneak voting at its worse. I oppose this law since it is not only a way to grand father the fraud and crimes perpetrated by the Bankers, Lawyers and their entities including MERS making it all legal after the fact.

    Before we provide a legal bail out on these criminals we need to clean their companies and close those who have ruined the American economy. I hope you side with reason and justice. The INVESTORS and the home owners were defrauded and now these criminals want our congress and senate to wash their hands of their crimes and to further victimize the American middle class.
    Do not let this happen.

    Thank you for your service.

    John Anderson. ”

    How do you find out who voted for this?

    I called Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Miami, Florida. Her staff informed me that they cannot tell me how she will be voting on this matter and frankly, acted like he did not know what I was talking about (which he does unless he has been working from the Moon). Anywho, I faxed a shame on you letter to her. I am deeply disappointed in our government. Unfortunately I have come to the conclusion that we are now in a lawless state and I am not sure what we can do about it as there is really nowhere to go for redress. Heartbreaking to say the least.

  3. MK says:

    I called my Congressman Ciro Rodriguez. The woman who took my comments said that she would let him know that I did not want the veto overridden.
