Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution grants the President authority to disapprove legislation passed by Congress. A bill that is disapproved, or vetoed, is returned to Congress with a Presidential message outlining the reasons for vetoing the bill. Congress then must decide whether to override or sustain the veto.
