Making A Law
A petition to the President to decline to sign a Bill until the matter can be put before the people in a referendum requires the assent of a majority of the members of the Seanad (and not less than one-third of the members of the D�il).

In cases where the Government requires that a Bill be signed earlier than the fifth day after it has been presented to the President, as is laid down in the Constitution, the Government needs the concurrence of the Seanad.

A private Bill, where it is intended to promote the particular interest or benefit of any person or locality, as distinct from a measure of public policy, must be introduced in the Seanad. After it has been passed by the Seanad the Bill is dealt with in the D�il and, when and if agreed to, it is sent to the President for signing.
