The board is responsible for either obtaining funds (from the state General Fund or by borrowing on the full faith and credit of the state) or recommending that a state agency deficit spends its current year budget when an emergency situation arises between sessions of the legislature. In addition, the board recommends priority and project description changes in the capital outlay bill and approves financial institutions as state depositories/fiscal agents.
