THE FIRST VETO ON THIS DAY IN 1792


President George Washington
cast the first presidential veto. The
measure was for apportioning representatives among the states
and Washington, who came from the southern state of Virginia,
ultimately decided that the plan was unconstitutional because,
in providing for additional representatives for some states, it
would have introduced a number of representatives higher
than that proscribed by the Constitution.
