2-7-8. Time of delivery of daily legislative journals--Penalty for delay--Waiver. The contractor for printing and binding of the journals of the Legislature shall deliver the daily journals to the Legislature at least two hours before the convening of the Legislature on the following legislative day and, if he fails to do so, he is subject to a penalty of ten dollars per hour for each hour's delay to be deducted from any sum due him on the contract, or recovered from his performance bond in the event such deduction from contract cannot be made. The director of the Legislative Research Council may waive the penalty provisions of this section if failure to deliver the daily journals as required is due to circumstances which the director considers to be sufficiently extenuating.
