55. Technically correct
Law comes from all three branches of government. For example, when a judge rules a law unconstitutional it is making law (this otherwise ok law cannot be used). Obviously legislature passes statutes that are either ratified by the executive or passed over veto. Executive branch agencies make regulations that have the power of law (sometimes pursuant to laws passed by the legislature). Plus the president has executive orders which have the force of law.
