Scope and Content
This series contains the letters of transmittal from the Legislature's chief clerk to Governor Bamberger and from Governor Bamberger to his Secretary of State. Letters officially inform the Governor that the Senate President and Speaker of the House have signed a given bill which was ready for his signature of approval or veto. Letters of transmittal to the Secretary of State keep a record of which bills Governor Bamberger passed, which he vetoed and explanations for his actions. A messenger book created by Joseph E. Shields, messenger to the Governor is also contained in this series. The Legislature authorized the Governor to appoint any suitable person to the position (1917, Senate Concurrent Resolution 1) in order to expedite the business of the Legislature. The book notes legislative bill number and title with Shield's signature showing receipt and usually a note giving the date the bill was given to the Governor.
This series is arranged alphabetically by document type: Messenger book or Transmittal letter. Transmittal letters are further arranged alphabetically, usually by the last name of the Senator or Representative proposing the legislation, but occasionally by name of group involved. S is the last letter on the transmittal letters; there are no T-Z files.
Journals from the Legislature. Senate, Series 409, are the Senate minutes which discuss progress on bills.
This series is classified as Public.

This series was processed by Wendy Checketts in 1999. The letters of transmittal were removed from the Administrative records series because of the completeness of content and relationship to the messenger book. The series was microfilmed and the inventory updated in 2002.
