1.Every bill and every joint resolution which has passed the Legislature shall be presented to the Governor in the same text as that in which it passed the Legislature and it shall be acted upon by the Governor accordingly but any bill or joint resolution in which material enclosed in bold-faced brackets is included shall, if it becomes law, be construed as though the material so included was omitted therefrom and no material so included shall be or constitute any part of the statute so enacted but a legend shall be affixed to the bottom of the first page of the bill or joint resolution indicating that material so included is intended to be omitted from the bill or joint resolution, when it becomes law. In addition, every annual appropriations bill which has passed the Legislature that may include one or more displays of summaries of items of appropriations as may appear within the bill shall not, if the bill becomes law, be construed as though the material so included within any display of summaries of items of appropriations constitutes any part of the act and a legend shall be affixed to the bottom of the first page of the bill indicating that material included within any display is intended to be for the purpose of displaying summaries of the items of appropriations set forth elsewhere within that act and, while included within the text of the law, is not intended to be part of the law.
