Chapters 2011 - 2012 Regular Session


Explanation of Chapter Listing


Bills passed by both houses are sent to the Revisor of Statutes office for engrossing and enrolling or simply engrossing. The Revisor's office enrolls each bill and gives it a chapter number in sequential order. The bill is then presented by the Revisor's office to the Governor. Once the governor has acted on a bill either favorably or unfavorably, or decides to neither sign nor veto a bill but to allow the bill to become law without his signature, the bill is transferred to the Secretary of State's office where it is officially filed as law.


Bills are presented in sequential order by Chapter number.
