A Senatus consultum ultimum is an enactment of the Senate and is the ultimate decree of the Senate. When in effect, this decree will supersede all other governmental bodies and authorities, including a lex, and as such must be obeyed. A Senatus consultum ultimum can address any issue the Senate so chooses to address, unless prevented by the Constitution from doing so, or a higher legal authority.
