At both the state and federal level, vetoing laws is an essential form of checks and balances. Vetoing Laws demonstrates the ins and outs of how laws are vetoed, what happens after a veto, and why wielding vetoes has both symbolic and tangible implications. The book also employs primary sources to describe the origin of the veto, in accordance with the aims of the C3 Framework for Social Studies State Standards. Modern examples of vetoes are included, such as President Obama's veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
