            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing an amendment to section 7 of article 4 of the constitution, in
  relation to legislative bills

  Section 1. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That section 7 of  arti-
cle 4 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:
  S  7.  Every  bill  which  shall  have  passed the senate and assembly
shall[, before it becomes a law,] be presented to  the  governor  WITHIN
THIRTY DAYS OF RECEIPT BY THE HOUSE OF ORIGIN, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, IF THE
BILL IS RETURNED TO THE HOUSE OF ORIGIN AFTER MAY FIRST, THEN IT MUST BE
PRESENTED  TO  THE  GOVERNOR  WITHIN  FORTY-FIVE  DAYS;  if the governor
approve, he or she shall sign it; but if not, he or she shall return  it
with  his  or  her objections to the house in which it shall have origi-
nated, which shall enter the objections at large  on  the  journal,  and
proceed  to  reconsider it. If after such reconsideration, two-thirds of
the members elected to that house shall agree to pass the bill, it shall
be sent together with the objections, to the other house,  by  which  it
shall  likewise  be  reconsidered;  and if approved by two-thirds of the
members elected to that house, it shall become a law notwithstanding the
objections of the governor. In all such cases the votes in  both  houses
shall  be  determined  by  yeas  and  nays, and the names of the members
voting shall be entered on the journal of each  house  respectively.  If
any  bill shall not be returned by the governor within ten days (Sundays
excepted) after it shall have been presented to him  or  her,  the  same
shall  be a law in like manner as if he or she had signed it, unless the
legislature shall, by their adjournment, prevent its  return,  in  which
case  it shall not become a law without the approval of the governor. No
bill shall become a law after the final adjournment of the  legislature,
