Section 11-44C-67

Expenditures not to exceed appropriation for that general classification of expenditure; expenditures financed by bonds; leases or contracts for period exceeding budget year.

No officer, department, or agency shall, during any budget year, expend or contract to expend any money or incur any liability, for any purpose in excess of the amounts appropriated for that general classification of expenditure pursuant to this chapter. Any contract, verbal or written, made in violation of this chapter shall be null and void. Nothing in this section, however shall prevent the making of contracts or the spending of money for capital improvements to be financed in whole or in part by the issuance of bonds, nor the making of leases or contracts for services for a period exceeding the budget year in which such lease or contract is made, when such contract is permitted by law.
