History

What are the "checks and balance" between the three branches, executive, legislature, and judicial? I know that the executive can sign bills to make them laws but I don't know what the other two branches relate to that with the "checks and balance." Thanks for helping!

  1. Congress makes the laws, but it is checked by the President who must sign each law. However, if the President vetoes it, Congress can override a veto when each house passes the legislation by a 2/3 majority.

    The Supreme Court can decide if a law is unconstitutional. It's checked because the President appoints the justices with the consent of Congress.

  2. Thank you Ms. Sue. I appreciate your helping me!
