77-2205. Warrants; registration; time limitation; file claim with State Claims Board.

If the State Treasurer is unable to pay the full amount thereof for any such warrants when they are presented to him or her due to (1) insufficient money to the credit of the funds against which such warrants are drawn, (2) not being authorized by the Board of Educational Lands and Funds to invest trust funds in state warrants, or (3) insufficient money in such trust funds to pay the same, then the owner or holder of the warrants shall be entitled to have the same registered, and not otherwise. The State Treasurer shall not pay any warrant, unless registered for any of the reasons set forth in this section, which is presented to him or her for payment more than two years after the date of its issuance if issued prior to October 1, 1992, or one year after the date of its issuance if issued on or after October 1, 1992, and any such warrant shall cease to be an obligation of the State of Nebraska and shall be charged off upon the books of the State Treasurer. Except as otherwise provided by law, the amount stated on such warrant shall be credited to the General Fund. Such warrant may, however, thereafter be presented to the State Claims Board which may approve a claim pursuant to the State Miscellaneous Claims Act for the amount of the warrant.
