Abstract

Discusses the definition, purpose, and history of the legislative veto. The author states, “The purpose behind legislative vetoes, to maintain the balance of power between the executive and legislative branches of government, however, is laudable given the historical growth of executive power at the expense of congressional influence and control in governmental decision making. Congress, to maintain a balance of power with the Executive, must reassert its constitutional authority through means, which will be both constitutionally acceptable and operationally effective. The legislative veto, however, fails to achieve these goals.”
