       The money your organization receives is considered state funds. 

During the 2008 legislative session the General Assembly passed a bill (H.B. 113), which establishes criminal and civil penalties for the use of state funds for one’s personal benefit. This law also applies to anyone who knowingly assists another person in violating the law. 

The criminal penalties are described below:

• Misdemeanor: If total amount of misused funds does not exceed $500.00, a person will be charged with a misdemeanor of high and aggravated nature which shall be punishable by not more than 12 months of imprisonment and a fine not to exceed $5,000.

• Felony: If the total amount of misused state funds exceeds $500.00, a person will be charged with a felony which shall be punishable by not less than one nor more than 20 years of imprisonment and a fine not to exceed $50,000 or triple the amount of such unlawful purchases, whichever is greater. 

If you would like to find out more information about this bill, a meeting with Holly Schramski about HB 1113 has been scheduled for Wednesday February 25 from 8:30am to 12:30pm in G5 Aderhold Hall.
