Transcript of Three Branches Of Government

The Three Branches of Government
The Executive Branch
The Executive Branch is the branch that enforces the laws. If the President vetoes a law, then it will not become an official law, unless the Legislative Branch overrides it.

Local Power: (Wellington Only) Chocolate Rose
State Power: (Colorado Only) BeauJo's Pizza
National Power: (US Only) TCBY
The Legislative Branch
The Legislative Branch in our country is the branch that makes/writes the laws. It is broken into two houses: the House of Representatives and the Senate. The House of Representatives is elected based on Population while the Senate is elected by Equal Representation. Together, these two houses make up Congress.
The Judicial Branch
The Judicial Branch is made up of nine judges, who review the laws that the Legislative Branch wrote. If the law goes against the rules of our Constitution, then the judges can declare the law unconstitutional. If this happens, they send the bill back to the Legislative Branch, and it never becomes and official Law.
