49. lappuse - The President may approve any appropriation and disapprove any other appropriation in the same bill. In such case he shall, in signing the bill, designate the appropriations disapproved ; and shall return a copy of such appropriations, with his objections, to the House in which the bill shall have originated ; and the same proceedings shall then be had as in case of other bills disapproved by the President.
69. lappuse - The Governor shall have power to disapprove of any item or items of any bill, making appropriations of money, embracing distinct items, and the part or parts of the bill approved shall be the law, and the item or items of appropriation disapproved shall be void, unless repassed according to the rules and limitations prescribed for the passage of other bills over the Executive veto.
64. lappuse - But the power in question has a further use. It not only serves as a shield to the executive, but it furnishes an additional security against the enaction of improper laws. It establishes a salutary check upon the legislative body, calculated to guard the community against the effects of faction, precipitancy, or of any impulse unfriendly to the public good which may happen to influence a majority of that body.

He shall have power to convene the Legislature, or the Senate only, on extraordinary occasions. At extraordinary sessions no subject shall be acted upon, except such as the Governor may recommend for consideration.
147. lappuse - ... consultation with party leaders, by his use of liaison officers, by his supervision over the budget, by special messages to Congress, or even by radio appeals to the people, the President can exercise no little influence over details in appropriations. Or to use the language of President Taft: "* * * there are other ways of killing a cat than by choking it with butter, and it is a great deal easier it does not rock the boat so much to use one's influence with the legislators to prevent...
139. lappuse - The veto power does not include the right to veto a part of a bill. The lack of such a power in the President has enabled Congress, at times, to bring to bear a pressure on him to permit legislation to go through that otherwise he would veto. Appropriation bills are necessary for the life of the Government, and if Congress, by putting a 'rider' of general legislation on one of these, says, 'We will throttle the Government, unless you consent to this,' it puts the President in an awkward situation.
