In 1996, Congress passed the Line Item Veto giving President Clinton the authority to veto portions of appropriations bills. Though the Supreme Court struck down the law in Clinton v. City of New York (1998), the merits of an expansion of presidential power to include the line item veto persists. This module is primarily taught in an upper-level high school AP U.S. Government and Politics class. Students are typically familiar with the otherwise difficult language of the texts because of previous class content. For more literacy activities and modules, visit: https://coretools.ldc.org
