8791. VETO, By council.—

The governor,
two councillors of State, and a judge from
each of the superior courts of chancery, common
law, and admiralty, shall be a council
to revise all bills which shall have passed both
houses of Assembly, in which council the governor,
when present, shall preside. Every bill,
before it becomes a law, shall be represented
to this council, who shall have a right to advise
its rejection, returning the bill, with
their advice and reasons in writing, to the
house in which it originated, who shall proceed
to reconsider the said bill. But if after
such reconsideration, two-thirds of the house
shall be of opinion that the bill should pass
finally, they shall pass it and send it, with
the advice and written reasons of the said
Council of Revision, to the other house,
wherein if two-thirds also shall be of opinion
it should pass finally, it shall thereupon
become law; otherwise it shall not.—
