Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ...passed by both houses of the General Assembly; but in its enrollment, two provisions, which had been reported by a conference committee and incorporated in the act by way of amendment were omitted. In this form it was sent to the governor and was by him approved on March 30. The next day the General Assembly adjourned. After the adjournment the omissions were discovered. A correct enrollment was then made and the bill, signed by the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House, was again laid before the Governor, who approved it on April 4th. The first presentation and approval were of no validity be cause it was not the same bill that had been passed by the Legislature. Smil/lee 1/. Campbell, 41 Ark, 471. The question then is resolved into this: Whether a bill, that has passed'both houses, may be submitted to the Governor for his approval after the adjournment of the Legislature, or whether it must be presented to him while the legislative body is still in session. The Constitution ordains that every such bill shall be presented to the Governor. If he approve it, he shall sign it; but if he shall not approve it, he shall return it, with his objections, to the house in which it originated; which house shall proceed to reconsider it. " If any bill shall not be returned by the Governor within five days, Sundays excepted, after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the General Assembly by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall become a law unless he shall file the same, with his objections, in the office of the Secretary of State, and give notice thereof by public proc-lamation within twenty days after such adjournment."
