Tex. Gov't Code Section 317.052
Effectiveness of a Contingent Appropriation


Before a contingent appropriation for computer equipment may become effective, a state agency must submit an application to the board for review and approval. A state agency shall send a copy of the application to the governor and the comptroller. The board may determine the format and timing of and the method for submitting the application.


After receiving an application, the board may hold a public hearing on the application.


After the hearing, if any, the board shall determine whether the application shows to the satisfaction of the board that:


the necessity of the computer equipment was reasonably unforeseen when the current General Appropriations Act was being considered and passed, or that sufficient appropriations to purchase the equipment were inadvertently or erroneously omitted from that Act;


the applicant’s current appropriations are inadequate or unavailable to purchase the equipment;


the applicant has obtained the approvals required by law; and


the applicant will not be required to make any payments during the current biennium on the interest and principal of the obligations issued by the Texas Public Finance Authority.
