LA Rev Stat § 39:236 What's This?

§236. Special deposits and refunds

The governor may prescribe the procedures for receiving, depositing, accounting for, and disbursing all moneys and securities deposited with any state agency or officer, as guarantee or security for the payment of any costs or charges, or for the performance of any specific act including, by way of extension and not of limitation, all moneys deposited as bail to secure the appearance of persons charged with public offenses, all moneys deposited by bidders on contracts to insure their entering into the contracts awarded them, and all moneys deposited to indemnify persons whose property may be damaged or destroyed by the operations of depositor. The rules also shall provide for the manner of making refunds of amounts paid to the state in error, and in other cases in which refunds of amounts paid to the state may be made. The rules may provide that the money or securities so deposited or paid may be returned to the depositors by the officers having administrative charge thereof, without specific appropriation or allotment, should the depositors become entitled to the return thereof, or may, upon default of any depositor and upon certificate to such effect by the officer having administrative charge of the matter, be declared to be forfeited in whole or in part and thereupon be transferred to the extent so forfeited, to the credit of the general fund, except as provided by law that they be credited to some other fund. Any refund or return of any amount that has been deposited in the treasury shall be accomplished by means of a warrant drawn in the manner by this Chapter provided, without necessity for any specific appropriation or allotment and shall be treated in the accounts as a deduction from receipts, and not as an expenditure.
