Pursuant to the directions of chapter 37, laws of 1909, entitled legislative law, I hereby certify that the following volume of the laws of this state was printed under my direction.


Secretary of State

Section 44 of the legislative law reads as follows:

§ 44. Statement in session laws as to passage of law. In the publication of every law, the certificates appended thereto shall be omitted, but there shall be inserted immediately under the title of the law, a statement to the effect that it became a law upon the properly specified date, with or without the approval of the governor, or notwithstanding his objections, as the case may be, and adding the words "passed by a two-thirds vote," "passed, threefifths being present," or "passed, a majority being present," and the words "on emergency message" if passed by a two-thirds vote on an emergency message from the governor, pursuant to section two of article twelve of the constitution, in accordance with the certificates appended to the original bill. Such statement shall be presumptive evidence that the original law was certified by the presiding officer of each house accordingly. (As amended by L. 1925, ch. 625.)

Such laws, concurrent resolutions, tables, indexes and other

cation in the state library under the supervision of the director

eating the subject-matter of the several sections of the laws and

style of execution to be thereafter followed in the publication of session laws. All contracts hereafter entered into for the printing of session laws shall be for terms of two years, and shall provide for the printing thereof in the style as so approved, and with the notes and references and in the form, and containing the matter, herein authorized or required.
