            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing an amendment to section 14 of article 3 of  the  constitution,
  in  relation  to prohibiting the passage of bills between the hours of
  midnight and eight o'clock a.m.

  Section 1. RESOLVED (if the Senate concur), That section 14 of article
3 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:
  S 14. No bill shall be passed or become a law:
  A. unless it shall have  been  printed  and  upon  the  desks  of  the
members,  in  its  final  form, at least three calendar legislative days
prior to its final passage, unless the governor, or the acting governor,
shall have certified, under his or her hand and the seal of  the  state,
the  facts  which  in  his  or her opinion necessitate an immediate vote
thereon, in which case it must nevertheless be upon  the  desks  of  the
members  in  final  form,  not  necessarily  printed,  before  its final
passage; [nor shall any bill be passed or become a law,]
  B. except by the assent of a majority of the members elected  to  each
branch of the legislature;
  C.    BETWEEN  THE HOURS OF MIDNIGHT AND EIGHT O'CLOCK A.M.; PROVIDED,
HOWEVER THAT THIS PROVISION MAY BE WAIVED UPON THE ASSENT OF  TWO-THIRDS
OF THE MEMBERS ELECTED TO EACH BRANCH OF THE LEGISLATURE; and
  D.  upon  the  last  reading  of a bill, no amendment thereof shall be
allowed, and the question upon its final passage shall  be  taken  imme-
diately thereafter, and the ayes and nays entered on the journal.
  S  2.  RESOLVED (if the Senate concur), That the foregoing be referred
to the first  regular  legislative  session  convening  after  the  next
succeeding general election of members of the assembly, and, in conform-
ity with section 1 of article 19 of the constitution, be published for 3
months previous to the time of such election.
