Action by Governor

SECTION 43-1-4



   § 43-1-4  Return of disapproved measures to

originating house. –

Whenever the governor returns to either house any measure, which he or she does

not approve, he or she shall, if the house is in session, transmit the measure

to the presiding officer. But if the house to which the measure is required by

law to be returned has adjourned for the day, but not for the session, at the

time the governor desires to make the return, then he or she shall deliver the

measure, in the case of the senate, to the secretary or clerk, and, in the case

of the house of representatives, to the reading or recording clerk. Delivery of

the measure to any one of the officers shall constitute a delivery to the house

of which he or she is an officer. Any officer receiving any measure shall

certify thereon the day and hour of its receipt and shall, at the opening of

the next daily session of the house of which he or she is an officer, deliver

the measure to the presiding officer.
