Engrossment means the meticulous comparison of the printed measure against the original introduced measure, and any amendments adopted, to ascertain that it is correct. The Engrossing and Enrolling Clerk corrects printing discrepancies and recommends technical amendments to improve clarity. During the engrossment process, a jacket is created for each printed form of a Senate measure that accommodates significant legislative and parliamentary information, contains an authenticated printed copy, and is substituted for the original measure at the Senate Desk prior to its passage to the Assembly.


Enrollment is accomplished by ordering the printing in enrolled form of Senate legislation that has passed both houses. The clerk verifies and ensures the accuracy of all actions taken on each measure and obtains the authenticating signatures from the Secretary of the Senate and the Chief Clerk of the Assembly, and transmits this enrolled document to the Governor and to the Secretary of State, respectively.
