            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing  an  amendment to section 14 of article 3 of the constitution,

  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

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

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 Senate 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
