Best Answer

For a law to be passed in Congress it needs majority support of the House of Representatives (which is made up of 435 members from districts of similar size) and majority support in the Senate (each state is allocated two members, regardless of population so 100 Senators in total). It also needs to be signed by the President.

You may be thinking of a constitutional amendment, which does need support a certain number of states.

Laws start out in the House of Representatives as Bills. Once two thirds of the members of the House (the size changes) a bill progresses to the Senate. Inside the Senate there are 100 members. In order for any law to pass the Senate, 67 members must vote "Yay" for the bill.

Once the bill leaves the Senate, it arrives on the Presidents desk. If the President signs it, the bill now becomes an act and law.

If the President Vetoes the bill, it's sent back to the House for more arguments and the process starts over. If both houses form a quorum and two-thirds of both houses vote to override the Presidents veto, the Bill skips the president and becomes a law.

None. That's not how it works. The states don't vote directly on the passage of laws.

Can Congress pass a law that overrides state law?

The short answer is yes, but before it can pass a law they have to have the authority to do so. Congress can only pass a law if the United States Constitution has expressly given that area to them to control or regulate. Recently Congress has taken an expansive view of the Commerce Clause to regulate commerce between the states to expand their authority. The United States Constitution states that any powers not reserved for the federal government is provided to the states.
