Best Answer

Congress can propose an amendment to the constitution as long as there is a two thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives as well as the Senate. The only other way to propose an amendment would be through a constitutional convention with a two thirds vote from all the states' legislatures.

What branch can propose amendments to overrule judicial decisions?

Legislative (the House of Representatives and Senate) can propose Amendments to the Constitution. The Judicial branch's power is to declare laws unconstintutional, so if an amendment is made to the Constitution, then the law is no longer unconstitutional, thus, in a sense, overturning a decision of the Supreme Court. Congress can also deliberately write laws to circumvent Supreme Court decisions.
