Legislative Veto

Legislative Veto This was a clause written into statutes that permitted the reversal of official actions taken by the president or executive agencies by majority vote of Congress or the Senate. About 200 laws included such provisions (including the War Powers Resolution, 1973) by 1983, when the Legislative Veto was ruled unconstitutional in Immigration and Naturalization Service v. Chadha.
