Wikipedia

  1. Pocket veto

    A pocket veto is a legislative maneuver that allows a president or other official with veto power to exercise that power over a bill by taking no action (keeping it in their pocket), thus effectively killing the bill without affirmatively vetoing it. This depends on the laws of each country; the common alternative is that if the president takes no action a bill automatically becomes law.

  1. pocket veto

    A pocket veto is a legislative mechanism used by the President or other executive authority to indirectly veto a bill. It occurs when the President does not sign a bill within ten days and Congress adjourns during that period. Without the President's signature, the bill cannot become law. This action is known as a 'pocket veto' because it's as if the President has put the bill in their pocket and forgotten about it. It's a way to veto a bill without actually having to reject it publicly.
