 SUBMITTED BY THE GOVERNOR FOR THAT FISCAL YEAR.  THE  LEGISLATURE  SHALL
 NOT ACT UPON BUDGET BILLS, PURSUANT TO SECTION THREE OF ARTICLE SEVEN OF
 THE  CONSTITUTION SUBMITTED BY THE GOVERNOR, UNLESS SUCH BILLS HAVE BEEN

 lation,  if  any,  recommended therein. Such bills shall be submitted by
 the governor and shall be known as budget bills. SUCH BUDGET BILLS SHALL
