Best Answer

If both houses of Congress agree on a bill, it is sent to the President. The President can then can do one of three things:

1. sign and make it a law

2. veto it which means to send it back to Congress with his objection.

3. Just hold it. If he does this , it automatically becomes a law after 10 days unless Congress adjourns before the days are up. Otherwise, it dies as if it had been vetoed.

What happens to a bill if the president uses a pocket veto?

It is dead, just as if he had used the traditional veto. There is one major difference. A bill that is pocket vetoed does not automatically go back to Congress for consideration of an override of the veto. Such a bill must be re-introduced as a new bill at the start of the next Congressional session. Then it gets treated as a new bill, meaning it canbe passed by simple majority, sent to the president for approval and vetoed (or not) in the usual fashion. Then it goes back to Congress for consideration of an override of the veto.
