Of the biennial messages submitted to the Legislature by the Governor, and any documents which he may deem essential to accompany the same, he shall cause a sufficient number to be printed, before the beginning of the session, if practicable, to provide the Clerk of the Senate and the Clerk of the House of Delegates with at least four copies for each member of their respective houses of the Legislature, and so as to transmit one copy to the Governor of each of the other states, one to the Secretary of State of the United States, and three to the Librarian of Congress, whereof one shall be for the library and one for each house of Congress; the Governor may require such additional copies to be printed as he may deem necessary, which additional copies shall be distributed as he may direct. The Governor shall also transmit, to the Governor of each of the other states, to the Secretary of State of the United States and the Librarian of Congress, copies of the journal of the Senate and of the House of Delegates, in the number and for the use and disposition as herein provided for copies of the biennial messages.
