§5-1-21. Printing and distribution of biennial messages;
distribution of legislative journals.
Of the biennial messages submitted to the Legislature by the
governor, and any documents which he may deem essential to
accompany the same, he shall cause a sufficient number to be
printed, before the beginning of the session, if practicable, to
provide the clerk of the Senate and the clerk of the House of
Delegates with at least four copies for each member of their
respective houses of the Legislature, and so as to transmit one
copy to the governor of each of the other states, one to the
secretary of state of the United States, and three to the librarian
of Congress, whereof one shall be for the library and one for each
house of Congress; the governor may require such additional copies
to be printed as he may deem necessary, which additional copies
shall be distributed as he may direct. The governor shall also
transmit, to the governor of each of the other states, to the
secretary of state of the United States and the librarian of
Congress, copies of the journal of the Senate and of the House of
Delegates, in the number and for the use and disposition as herein
provided for copies of the biennial messages.
