The blank book is only about 14 inches long.
In these instances, clerks borrow a technique from children's pop-up books. They fold the bill titles, accordion-style, before pasting the top section onto one of the logbook's pages.
The logbook accompanies each chamber's bills to the Governor's Office, where it is time-stamped and signed.
"It's clocked in with the date and time, and the signature of the person receiving on behalf of the governor," Gray said.
"We'll stamp them all in, then they're out of our hands," Cassis said.
It is now up to Tomblin to decide whether to sign the bills into law or veto them. Just as soon as his staff finishes proofreading each individual piece of legislation, looking for errors the clerks might have missed.
Mistakes can be deadly for bills. Tomblin last week vetoed Senate Bill 21, which would have required health care workers to wear identification badges at all times.
The governor torpedoed the bill not over politics or funding concerns, but because of a tiny little typo that had so far made it through the system unnoticed.
"The applicability of this section . . . is incorrect because of an incorrect cross-reference on page four, line one," Tomblin wrote in his veto message to Secretary of State Natalie Tennant. "This cross reference should refer to section 'two,' instead of section 'three.' "
When the governor is finished passing or vetoing bills, the logbook always returns to the House Clerk's office for safekeeping.
"That's the only record book that we have," Gray said.
Computers have changed many parts of the legislative process - lawmakers now do much of their reading on state-issued iPads, and the clerks' offices keep track of changes to bills through the Legislature's website - but maintaining these logbooks still is required by the joint rules of the Legislature.
It remains a decidedly low-tech process mostly because it still works.
Gray's office has legislative logbooks going back to the state's founding.
During a recent visit by the Daily Mail, Gray produced a book from 1953. The yellowed tome was formatted just like this year's version, with bill titles snipped and pasted onto lined pages. But instead of Tomblin's signature, this book bears the autographs of governors like Cecil Underwood and Wally Barron.
Soon, Gray will begin another of his old-fashioned but important duties: compiling hardbound copies of the House's journals.
The clerks' offices print journals throughout the legislative session, reflecting every action taken on the House or Senate floor.
But at the end of the session, legislative rules require each chamber to produce a bound version of these journals. The books usually are so lengthy they require multiple volumes, each one as thick as certain Harry Potter novels.
Most of the time, it's pretty dry reading. But on occasion, a fascinating nugget of West Virginia history will leap from the pages.
For instance: the House Journal for 1963 shows the House of Delegates passed a concurrent resolution to make former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill an honorary citizen of the state of West Virginia.
Churchill promptly responded with a letter.
"Will you please convey to the Legislature and the Governor of the State of West Virginia my gratitude for the honor that has been done me?" he wrote. "It is a source of the greatest pleasure to me that the State of West Virginia should pay me this outstanding compliment."
Other entries provide just enough details to get the imagination running wild.
"FIRE," an entry from Nov. 30, 1875 reads. "The Hall of the House of Delegates is on fire."
