            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.  and requiring two-thirds approval for
  messages of necessity

  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 AND TWO-THIRDS OF THE MEMBERS ELECTED  TO  EACH  BRANCH  OF  THE
LEGISLATURE  ASSENT  TO SUCH FACTS THAT NECESSITATE SUCH IMMEDIATE VOTE,
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.
