The bill I emailed you, H.R. 3590, now P.L 111-148, was the version passed by the House and Senate and sent to the President for his signature. The Government Printing Office doesn’t make available electronically the signed version of the bill. However, there is no substantive difference between the bill sent to the President and the one with his signature.
Unfortunately, the President did sign the ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010’ on March 23, 2010 and it is now public law. The Reconciliation Act, H.R. 4872, P.L. 111-152, is also on the books.
Email or call if you have any additional questions. Thanks.

Thank you for sending me the House Resolution Bill 3590, without the signature of the President.
I asked for the PL(Public Law-ie.HR signed by the president when the prefix changes to PL and the corresponding number that will point to this House Bill.
As you know, without the President's signature, HR 3590 is not worth the paper it is written on.
Kindly send me within the next 5 (five) business days the PL with the proper assigned # that pertains to this HR 3590, with the President's signature.
If I do not receive a copy of the HR 3590 with the President's signature,- when it is automatically assigned a PL (Public Law) number and becomes an enforceable Law- within the above stipulated period, then you, my
Representative and President Obama agree and confirm that as of now there is no Law in
Your prompt response would be duly appreciated
