Enrolled Bill / Enrolled Measure

The final official copy of a bill that has been passed by both chambers in identical form. It is certified by an officer of the house of origin (clerk of the House or secretary of the Senate) and then sent on for the signatures of the House Speaker, the Senate president pro tempore and the president of the United States. An enrolled bill is printed on parchment.

“An enrolled version prominently features the Congress and session, uses a formal typeface for the Congress and An Act, and shows the measure number in small type in the upper left corner of the first page.” From § 9.60, Versions of Legislation, in Congressional Deskbook.
