(1) It is the duty of the revisor of statutes, upon approval by the speaker of the house and the president of the senate, to arrange and prepare for publication, immediately after the adjournment of each session of the general assembly, a copy of all the laws passed at such session, together with such resolutions and memorials passed at such session and furnished to the revisor of statutes for publication by the chief clerk of the house and the secretary of the senate, and all initiated and referred laws which have been passed by the vote of the people. The session laws shall contain a full index, a tabulation by Colorado Revised Statutes section numbers of all changes made to such statutes by amendment, repeal, or addition of new subject matter, and a disposition table by house and senate bill number to the session laws and to Colorado Revised Statutes. The revisor of statutes shall see that the printing and binding of the laws are well-executed. The contract and sales pertaining to such publication shall be handled in accordance with this article. The signature of the president of the senate, speaker of the house, and governor shall not be printed at the end of each law, but only the date of the approval by the governor shall be shown. The certificate of the contents of the session laws volumes shall be signed by the speaker of the house and the president of the senate.

(2) If the committee on legal services finds that economy and efficiency will be achieved, the committee may combine the contract for the publication of session laws of Colorado with that for the publication of Colorado Revised Statutes, in which event the bid and contract provisions of this part 2 shall not apply, and the bid and contract provisions of article 5 of title 2, C.R.S., shall apply.

(3) The classification and arrangement by chapter, article, and number system of sections in any enactment of the general assembly printed in the session laws of Colorado, as well as the section titles or captions and other editorial matter included in the session laws, form no part of the legislative text enacted thereby. Such inclusion is only for the purpose of convenience, orderly arrangement, and information;  therefore, no implication or presumption of a legislative construction is to be drawn therefrom.
