    All you need to know right here: ThisNation.com--What is an Executive Order?

    But to answer your question briefly, yes, Congress can negate an EO. Imagine an Executive Order which said, "All Congressmen must wear funny hats and clown noses" (obscure reference). That exceeds Executive powers.

    Requires two thirds vote of both houses of congress but yes, it can be done.
