§4-11-1. Legislative findings and purpose.

The Legislature finds and declares that in order to carry out

its responsibility for the enactment of all appropriations needed

for the operation of state government, the Legislature needs

continuous and accurate accounts of the amounts and purposes of all

federal funds being requested, received or expended by the various

agencies and departments of the state. The Legislature further

finds and declares that the increased availability of and reliance

on federal financial assistance has a substantial impact upon the

programs, priorities and fiscal affairs of the state. It is the

purpose of this article to clarify and specify the role of the

Legislature in appropriating federal funds received by the state

and in prescribing, by general law, the required form and detail of

the itemization and classification of proposed appropriations to

assure that state purposes are served and legislative priorities

are adhered to by the acceptance and use of such funds.
