A presidential veto occurs when the president withholds his signature from a bill presented to him, after it has been passed by both houses of Congress, and returns it to Congress (specifically, to the house of origin), along with his objections to the bill. Congress may then, if it chooses, attempt to override the veto. For the override effort to be successful, it must be by 2/3 vote in both houses. This procedure is provided for in Article I, section 7 of the Constitution. If the president withholds his signature but does not return the bill to Congress, it automatically becomes law after 10 days (excluding sundays), unless Congress by its adjournment makes bill return impossible. Under those unusual circumstances, the president withholding of signature is a pocket veto, which kills the bill.
the President can use a veto to reject a bill passed by congress (gradpoint)

WHY OVERPASSES ARE NOT TO BE USED FOR SHELTERS
The 17th Amendment to the US constitution requires that vacancies in the senate be filled by special election. In most states, the state governor can appoint an interim senator to fill a vacancy in the state's senate seat until a special election is held. However, in Oregon and Wisconsin the seat remains vacant until a replacement is elected.
