RS 15:166 - Disbursement of funds
§166. Disbursement of funds
A. The board shall not disburse funds to a non-governmental entity unless it establishes a benefit to the function of the board pursuant to law, and unless services are actually delivered. Under no circumstances shall the board disburse state funds for the purpose of savings, reserves, or other purposes related primarily to the economic health of the non-governmental entity or its owners and employees.
B. Any service which the board seeks, other than the Louisiana Appellate Project or the Capital Appeals Project, which are statewide programs, shall be subject to an application process by which the board provides objective deliverables and allows the district defenders to make application upon the same terms as a non-governmental entity to provide services in that district or a regional area for services as provided by law.
C. No provision of Louisiana law authorizing the return or rollback of funds from governmental programs to the division of administration shall apply to the board account during an emergency shortfall in funding as certified by the board with the approval of the chief justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court.
