Best Answer

In addition to the Congress and the President, it is important to realize that the departments of the Executive Branch are lobbied. Cabinet Departments and various government agencies are responsible for "faithfully executing" the laws. Often, the interpretation of these agencies won't change until their is a court case asking for a judicial interpretation of a law. Additionally, both the Judicial Branch and the general populous are lobbied when it comes to proposed laws. You will often see television commercials, hear radio ads, or receive emails from special interest groups trying to mobilize you to contact members of Congress to voice your opinion. The judicial branch is lobbied directly by amicus curiae, or friend of the court briefs from parties interested in a specific case.

Can the president recommend legislation to congress?

The US President can certainly make a draft of a law he would like to see the Congress to pass. A quick example is this: the president wants a bill created to allocate $100,000,000 for a mars exploration project. As this is a "money" bill, he could give the draft to a member of the House of Representatives. He can also make it clear that the bill is a priority. He cannot do anything more then that. He cannot make "legislation". If the bill passes the House & is approved by the Senate, then the President can sign the bill into law.
