Title: Three Branches of Government


1
Three Branches of Government
  • Executive Branch

2
YOUR Branch GOES HERE
  • Who is in your branch of government
  • Headed by the president.
  • The vice president is next in command
  • The cabinet-
  • is made up of the heads of the fifteen major
  • departments of the government

EXECUTIVE BRANCH
  • What does your branch do?
  • The president carries out federal laws and
    recommends new ones
  • He directs national defense and foreign policy
  • He performs ceremonial duties
  • Powers include directing government, commanding
    the Armed Forces, dealing with international
    powers, acting as chief law enforcement officer,
    and vetoing laws.

EXECUTIVE BRANCH
  • How does your branch interact with the other
    branches ?
  • In order for the Legislative Branch to pass a
    bill into law, the President (Executive Branch)
    must sign it. The President can check the
    Legislative Branch by vetoing it not signing a
    bill into law.
  • The President nominates candidates for Supreme
    Court Justices (Judicial Branch). In doing this,
    he checks the Judicial Branch by nominating
    candidates that would balance the power in the
    Supreme Court (or tip it into his favor).

5
YOUR Branch GOES HERE
  • What does your branch do to help a bill become a
    law?
  • While it is the legislative branch that passes
    bills, the president must sign them into effect.
    And though not in the Constitution, every
    president since Washington has made "executive
    orders", which are basically just laws passed by
    the president which bypass congress. Executing,
    or implementing laws, is the main job of the
    executive branch.
