Looks like it is time for another crash course on how this works…
Veto Override Procedure in the House and Senate
A bill or joint resolution that has been
vetoed by the President can become law if two-thirds of the Members
voting in the House and the Senate each agree to pass it over the
President’s objection. The chambers act sequentially on vetoed
measures; the House acts first on House-originated measures (H.R. and
H.J. Res.) and the Senate acts first on Senate-originated measures (S.
and S.J. Res.). If the first-acting chamber fails to override the veto,
the measure dies and the other chamber does not consider it. The House
typically considers the question of overriding a presidential veto
under the hour rule, with time customarily controlled and allocated by
the chair and ranking member of the committee with jurisdiction over
the bill. The Senate usually considers the question of overriding a
veto under the terms of a unanimous consent agreement.
Voting in the House
To override a veto, two-thirds of the
Members voting, a quorum being present, must agree to repass the bill
over the President’s objections. The Constitution requires that the
vote be by the “yeas and nays,” which in the modern House means that
Members’ votes will be recorded through the electronic voting system.
The vote on the veto override is final because, in contrast to votes on
most other questions in the House, a motion to reconsider the vote on
the question of overriding a veto is not in order.
