presiding or other officer designated by the rules of such house shall
append to such bill or resolution a certificate, to be signed by him,
which shall disclose the date of its passage in such house, and whether
passed by the votes of a majority of all the members elected to such
house or of two-thirds thereof, or of a majority of such members,

action by the governor, two copies shall be certified as above provided,
one of which, upon final passage by both houses, shall be transmitted to
the governor and the other to the secretary of state. No bills shall be
deemed to have so passed unless certified in the manner provided by this
