Exective Branch of the Goverment

In the United States, the executive branch carries out federal laws. It is led by the president, whose duties include signing bills into laws[or vetoing them]; enforcing laws; comanding the armed forces; making treaties with foriegn goverments; appointing judges, ambassadors, and other important officials; and preforming ceremonial functions

Checks and Balances

Before a bill becomes a law, both the Senate and the House of Representatives must approve it to identical form.

The President has the power to sign the bill into a law or veto it. If the president vetoes a bill, Congress can Override the veto by a two-thirds vote of both houses.

The Supreme Court has the power to declare a law passed by Congress to be unconstitutional.
