Chapters - 2019-2020 Regular Session

Bills passed by both houses are sent to the Revisor of Statutes office for engrossing or enrolling. 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. If the governor approves the bill, or it becomes law without their signature, the bill is transferred to the secretary of state's office where it is officially filed as law. If the governor vetoes a bill, it is returned to the house of origin with the governor's objections.

Bills are presented in sequential order by Chapter number. File with * indicates bill sent to the governor. Presented to governor entry is the official presentment date by the Revisor of Statutes. Vetoes and Line items vetoes are noted. Secretary of State entry is the date a bill transmitted from the Governor's office to the Secretary of State for filing.
