"Authorizing the publication of a Legislative Manual, providing for a mailing list for House Journal,
authorizing other mailings upon request, and authorizing payment of travel and other
expenses of the House."
Resolved by the House of Delegates:
I. That the Clerk of the House of Delegates is hereby authorized to compile and have printed
without delay a Legislative Manual containing the rules of the Senate and of the House of Delegates
and such matter and material as he may deem to by useful and convenient to the members of the
Legislature. The Clerk of the House of Delegates shall cooperate with the Clerk of the Senate in
compiling said manual and include therein such material with reference to the Senate as said Clerk
of the Senate may prepare so as to obviate the necessity of the Senate publishing a manual.
II. That during the sessions of the 79th Legislature, the Clerk of the House of Delegates is
hereby authorized to have mailed from the House document room copies of the daily Journal of the
House of Delegates to lists of persons to be furnished to the Clerk by the members of the House of
Delegates, such lists not to exceed five names from each Delegate; and the expenses of such mailing,
including postage, shall be paid by the Auditor out of the contingent fund of the House of Delegates
upon proper requisitions of the Clerk. All such mail shall bear the stamp of the Clerk of the House
of Delegates, and the Clerk shall designate such persons as to deliver such mail to the Central
Mailing Office and notify the postmaster of such designation, and said office shall not accept such
mail from any person or persons other than those so designated by the Clerk.
The Clerk is hereby further authorized to mail copies of Journals, bills and other documents
printed by the House of Delegates to persons requesting the same.
III. That in accordance with article two-a, chapter four of the code, the Clerk of the House
of Delegates is hereby authorized to draw his requisitions upon the Auditor for travel expenses of
members of the House of Delegates for such number of miles traveled as shall by certified to him
by the various members, for payment of per diem and mileage of elected officers and such members
of the House as authorized by the Speaker, and for other authorized expenses during the 79th
