|Description:||Used to create the endorsement structure that is on the back of a measure; the endorsement typically includes information about the measure's title, number, the chamber in which it is being considered, its calendar number, etc.
Endorsements are created by either the GPO or the Clerks. GPO creates endorsements on calendar bills (reported bills), while the Enrolling Clerks create endorsements on engrossments. It should be noted that a simple resolution reported has an endorsement, but engrossed simple resolutions do not have endorsements.
