                STATEMENT OF PURPOSE 
                      RS 10311 
     This bill would clarify that the President Pro Tempore and the Speaker of the
     House of Representatives are the officials who are authorized to make
     expenditures out of the legislative account and to sign vouchers or claims for
     payment, and that those signatures are sufficient authority for the State Controller
     to pay the same. 
                     FISCAL NOTE
     This bill would have no fiscal impact.
