Pocket Veto

Don’t Let a Pocket Veto Destroy Your Meeting

Just read that Christie pocket vetoed this. With a pocket veto, he only had to wait 10 days and not sign it. The bill died. Had he vetoed it, he would have had to give a reason. With a pocket veto, he doesn't have to explain a thing.....


Wade-Davis Bill (1864). At the end of the Civil War, this bill created a framework for Reconstruction and the readmittance of the Confederate states to the Union. Congress passed the Wade-Davis Bill, but President Lincoln chose not to sign it, killing the bill with a pocket veto. Lincoln continued to advocate tolerance and speed in plans for the reconstruction of the Union in opposition to the Congress.
