Regarding this, can the president veto the federal budget?
The budget resolution is a “concurrent” congressional resolution, not an ordinary bill, and therefore does not go to the President for his signature or veto. Because it does not go to the President, a budget resolution cannot enact spending or tax law.
Also, can Congress override a presidential veto of the budget? Congress can override the veto via a two-thirds vote with both houses voting separately, after which the bill becomes law. The president may also veto specific provisions on money bills without affecting other provisions on the same bill.
Keeping this in view, what happens if the president vetoes the budget?
This veto can be overridden only by a two-thirds vote in both the Senate and the House. If this occurs, the bill becomes law over the President's objections. A pocket veto occurs when Congress adjourns during the ten-day period. The president cannot return the bill to Congress.
Can the budget pass without the president?
Without a budget, many government services stop If Congress can't agree on 12 separate appropriations bills, it can pass an Omnibus bill that includes multiple funding areas. If the President signs that, the budget becomes law and goes into effect.
