large on its Journal and proceed to reconsider the Bill; if,
after such reconsideration, three-fifths of the members elected
to that House shall pass the Bill, it shall be sent with the
objections to the other House, by which it shall likewise be
reconsidered, and if it pass by three-fifths of the members
elected to that House it shall become a law; but in all such
cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas
and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against
the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respec-
tively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the Governor
within six days (Sundays excepted), after it shall have been
presented to him, the same shall be a law in like manner as
if he signed it, unless the General Assembly shall, by adjourn-
ment, prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.
Any bill which is vetoed by the Governor following the ad-
journment of the General Assembly, or any bill which fails to
become a law by reason of not having been signed by the
Governor following the adjournment of the General Assembly,
shall be returned to the House in which it originated, imme-
diately after said House shall have organized at the next
regular or special session of the General Assembly. Said bill
may then be reconsidered according to the procedure specified
hereinabove. If the bill is passed over the veto of the Gover-
nor, it shall take effect on June 1 following, unless the bill is
an emergency measure to take effect when passed.
The Governor shall have power to disapprove of any item
or items of any Bills making appropriations of money embrac-
ing distinct items, and the part or parts of the Bill approved
shall be the law, and the item or items of appropriations dis-
approved shall be void unless repassed according to the rules
or limitations prescribed for the passage of other Bills over
the Executive veto.
