if not, he shall return it with his objections to the house in which it
shall have originated, and the house shall cause the objections to be
entered at large on its journals, and shall proceed to re-consider the
bill. If, after such re-consideration, a majority of all the members
elected to that house shall agree to pass the same, it shall be sent, to-
gether with the objections, to the other house, by which it shall be
in like manner re-considered, and if approved by a majority of all
the members elected to that house, it shall become a law. In all
such cases the votes of both houses shall be taken by yeas and nays,
and the names of the members voting for and against the bill shall be
entered on the journal of each house respectively. If any bill shall
not be returned by the governor within ten days (Sundays excepted)
after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall become a
law in like manner as if the governor had signed it, unless the general
assembly by its adjournment shall prevent its return, in which case
it shall not become a law.

Secsection 12—There shall be an auditor of public accounts, whom the

shall possess the same qualifications as the governor. The electors
shall distinguish for whom they vote as governor, and for whom as
lieutenant governor.

Secsection 15—The lieutenant governor shall by virtue of his office be
president of the senate. In committee of the whole he may debate
