Legislative Process and Presidential Veto: The Case of Argentina(2021_2_40_002)


What kinds of congressional amendments invoke presidential vetoes? To which parts of bills does the president tends to exercise his/her line-item veto authority? Most of the studies on presidential vetoes analyze the cases of the United States, where the president does not hold line-item veto authority, while there is a limited number of empirical studies that focus on Latin America. Through the textual analysis of bills approved by the Congress of the Argentine Nation, this study intends to unpack the impacts of each stage of the legislative process on the president's decision to exercise his/her veto authority.
