AGO 1965 NO. 12 >

A special session of the legislature when convened by the governor is a new session and not a continuation of the regular session; therefore, at the special session bills to be constitutionally enacted must be introduced, (Article II, § 20; AGO 65-66 No. 10) passed separately by both houses, (Article II, § 22) be signed by the presiding officers, (Article II, § 32) and be presented to the governor (Article III, § 12).
