Compare and contrast the concepts of separation of powers and checks and balances
Transcript of Compare and contrast the concepts of separation of powers and checks and balances
between the three branches of government, along with the powers to check and balance the actions of the other branches. Each of the three branches of government carries out their own duties. The legislative branch (also known as The Georgia General Assembly) makes all the laws. The executive branch (which is headed by the governor) carries out and enforces the laws. The judicial branch (which is headed by the Georgia Supreme Court) is the branch that determines the constitutionality of the law. This is how the powers are separated between the three branches of government. If the Georgia General Assembly passes a law that the governor does not agree with, he or she has the power to veto it. If Congress gets enough votes, they have the option of overriding the veto. When the bill becomes a law, the Supreme Court must decide if the law is constitutional. If the law is unconstitutional, it is now null and void.
