The application must be signed by the department/agency head as well as the state senator and state representative in whose district the facility is located. If it is a statewide project, then no legislative signatures are required.
If a project is being transferred to a different department/agency, the signature of the recipient department/agency's head is required also.
Applications from Non-State Entities
The application must be signed by the agency head as well as the state senator and state representative in whose district the facility is located. If a project is being transferred to a different agency, the signature of the recipient agency's head is required also.

Action by the Board on any project descriptive changes is subject to a majority approval of both houses of the legislature. Any capital outlay scope change which was favorably recommended by the Board and received legislative approval from one house but failed to receive approval from the other house shall not be eligible for reconsideration for reballoting at any future meeting of the Board.
