  III Section 30.  Signing of bills by presiding officers — procedure on objections — presentation of bills to governor. — No bill shall become a law until it is signed by the presiding officer of each house in open session, who first shall suspend all other business, declare that the bill shall now be read and that if no objection be made he will sign the same.  If in either house any member shall object in writing to the signing of a bill, the objection shall be noted in the journal and annexed to the bill to be considered by the governor in connection therewith.  When a bill has been signed, the secretary, or the chief clerk, of the house in which the bill originated shall present the bill in person to the governor on the same day on which it was signed and enter the fact upon the journal.

(1956) Requirement that bill be signed by legislative officers before it becomes law is directory only, and failure of speaker of house to sign bill is a procedural error which is cured on approval of the bill on referendum. Brown v. Morris, 365 Mo. 946, 290 S.W.2d 160.
