Enrolled bill

In the United States Congress and in many state legislatures, an enrolled bill is the final copy of a bill or joint resolution which has passed both Houses of Congress in identical form.

In the United States Congress, engrossed bills must be signed by the presiding officers of both the House of Representatives and the Senate,[1] printed on parchment or paper of suitable quality [2] and sent to the President for approval.[3]
