CERTIFICATE

STATE OF NEW YORK

OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF STATE

ALBANY, November 1, 1954 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.

THOMAS J. CURRAN,

Secretary of State Section 44 of the legislative law reads as follows:

§ 44. Printing of session laws. The secretary of state shall annually cause the session laws to be printed in a bound volume or volumes as soon as possible after the adjournment of the legislature. All new matter shall be printed in the same manner as existing law, and all matter eliminated from existing law, together with the brackets enclosing the same, all explanatory matter, line numbers and certificates 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 majority vote," “passed by a two-thirds vote,” or "passed by a majority vote, threefifths being present,” and if passed on a message required by the constitution, that fact also shall be stated, and, if the certificate so specifies, the applicable portion of the constitution shall be identified, in accordance with the certificates appended to the original bill. In the case of an appropriation law passed pursuant to the provisions of sections three and four of article seven of the constitution the statement in addition to the other matter prescribed in this section shall also be to the effect that part of it became a law upon a properly specified date by the action of both houses of the legislature and that part of it became a law upon a properly specified date with or without the approval of the governor, or notwithstanding his objections, as the case may be. Such statement shall be presumptive evidence that the original law was certified by the presiding officer of each house accordingly. The legislature may appropriate such state moneys as may be necessary to secure the printing of the session laws in accordance with the provisions of this section. (As amended L. 1925, ch. 625; L. 1929, ch. 65, $ 3; L. 1945, ch. 721, 8 18; L. 1948, eh. 258, 8 1; L. 1949, ch. 366, 8 2; L. 1950, ch. 820.)
