            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing an amendment to section 3 of article 4 of the constitution, in
  relation to establishing a procedure for the governor's annual message
  to the legislature regarding the state of the state

  Section 1. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That section 3 of  arti-
cle 4 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:
  S  3.  The  governor  shall  be commander-in-chief of the military and
naval forces of the state. The governor shall have power to convene  the
legislature, or the senate only, on extraordinary occasions. At extraor-
dinary  sessions  convened pursuant to the provisions of this section no
subject shall be acted upon, except such as the governor  may  recommend
for  consideration.  The  governor  shall  communicate by message to the
legislature at every session the condition of the state,  and  recommend
such matters to it as he or she shall judge expedient. THE MESSAGE SHALL
BE  DELIVERED  ORALLY  IN THE ASSEMBLY CHAMBER, DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF
LEGISLATIVE SESSION, WITH A QUORUM OF THE ASSEMBLY AND A QUORUM  OF  THE
SENATE  PRESENT. The governor shall expedite all such measures as may be
resolved upon by the legislature, and shall take care that the laws  are
faithfully executed.  The governor shall receive for his or her services
an  annual  salary  to  be  fixed  by joint resolution of the senate and
assembly, and there shall be provided for his or her use a suitable  and
furnished executive residence.
  S  2.  Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That the foregoing amendment
be referred to the first regular legislative session convening after the
next succeeding general election of members of  the  assembly,  and,  in
conformity  with  section  1  of  article  19  of  the  constitution, be
published for 3 months previous to the time of such election.
