> Sigh. Another "pocket veto".
I had to search in Wikipedia for the this term, it says:
"A *pocket veto* is a legislative maneuver that allows a president
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President> or other official with veto
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veto> power to exercise that power over a
bill by taking no action (instead of affirmatively vetoing it)."
I translated to Spanish to understand better, but I see no correlation as
we officially don't have officials with veto power".
Are you sure you were referring to this?
I'll look into it, but I suspect that the 4 "abstains" should have been a 3.
