Veto

The power of the head of the executive branch (e.g., the president, governor, or mayor) to kill a piece of legislation by refusing to sign it. A presidential veto can be overridden by a 2/3 majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

The Latin term “veto” translates as “I forbid.”
