2     AMENDMENT NO. ______. Amend Senate Bill 1643 on page 8,
3 immediately below line 12, by inserting the following:
4     "(j) Each State agency whose lapse period extends through
5 October 31 may be appropriated a separate line item in its
6 annual fiscal year budget for liabilities incurred prior to
7 June 30 of the previous fiscal year that are not expected to be
8 paid by the end of the 4-month lapse period and to remain
9 unpaid due to State agency processing delays. All vouchers for
10 payment drawn from such an appropriation submitted to the
11 Comptroller shall include a certification that includes a
12 statement as follows: "I certify that the liabilities submitted
13 herein for payment remained outstanding at the close of
14 business on October 31 of the previous fiscal year due to State
15 agency processing delays and not because of an attempt to
16 bypass the fiscal year limitations under Section 25 of the
17 State Finance Act." For Departments under the Civil

7 caused by a prolonged eligibility determination process,
8 changes in eligibility status, missing or lost invoices,
9 billing errors, adjudicating medical or pharmaceutical claims,
