If the bill passes both houses, it becomes a public act and is renamed as such. After a stop in the Legislative Commissioners' Office for final revision (engrossing) it goes to the governor. The governor has a few options:
- She could sign the public act, making it a law.
- She could take no action, in which case the act becomes law anyway, but without her explicit approval.
- It takes bills in this situation five days to become a bill when the legislature is in session. (After the legislature adjourns, the time frame is fifteen days.)
- She could also veto the act. Her veto has to be for the entire act - she cannot veto certain parts and let others pass.
