I was looking for solid evidence that would explain when the President vetos a law (bill, congress can over ride it with a 2/3 vote, but from the day the the president says I am vetoing it, is the bill considered dead untill congress revives it by voting? I am looking for information reguarding the days after the president vetos a law and when congress could posibly vote. What or how is the "vetoed" law classified?

There's a site maintained by the U.S. Government that tells about the Presidential Veto Procedure: http://www.house.gov/rules/95-1195.htm

They say on that site that "Most often, however, if a vote or other action is to occur, it will take place within a week or two of the veto being cast." There's much more to it, of course, please read the whole text.

You certainly get a better answer to your question if you send it to the Ask Librarian -service of the Library of COngress: http://www.loc.gov/rr/askalib/
