  Judiciary

            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing  an  amendment to section 14 of article 3 of the constitution,
  in relation to requiring the assent of a two-thirds  majority  of  the
  members elected to each branch of the legislature prior to the immedi-
  ate vote on any legislation which has not aged for three days

  Section 1. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That section 14 of arti-
cle 3 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:
  S  14.  No  bill  shall be passed or become a law 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 opin-
ion necessitate an immediate vote thereon, in which case it must  never-
theless  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, except by the assent of a majority of the members elected
to  each  branch  of  the  legislature,  PROVIDED  THAT  A  MAJORITY  OF
TWO-THIRDS  OF  THE  MEMBERS  IN EACH BRANCH OF THE LEGISLATURE SHALL BE
REQUIRED IN THE CASE OF AN IMMEDIATE VOTE; and upon the last reading  of
a bill, no amendment thereof shall be allowed, and the question upon its
final  passage  shall  be taken immediately thereafter, and the ayes and
nays entered on the journal.   ANY BILL  WHICH  IS  PASSED  FOLLOWING  A
MESSAGE  OF NECESSITY SHALL EXPIRE NO LATER THAN TWO YEARS FROM THE DATE
IT BECOMES EFFECTIVE. NO SUCH BILL OR EXTENSION OF THE PROVISIONS THERE-
OF MAY BE SUBJECT TO A SECOND MESSAGE OF NECESSITY.
  S 2. Resolved (if the Assembly 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.
