What is an attestation?
An attestation is a signed verification under penalty of perjury that the information in
an Appropriations Project Request form is true and accurate, that any inaccuracies will
be promptly corrected, and that the organization or entity requesting funding consents
to investigation of such information and any matter relevant thereto.
Who files the attestation?
The attestation should be completed and signed by the Principal Officer of the
organization or entity for which an Appropriations Project Request form was submitted.
“Principal Officer” means the individual who, regardless of title, has ultimate
responsibility for implementing the decisions of the governing body of the organization
or entity or for supervising the management, administration, or operation of the
organization or entity.
When is the deadline to file the attestation?
The completed and signed attestation must be submitted after the Appropriations Project
Bill is filed. It must be received by the Public Integrity & Elections Committee before
the Appropriations Project Bill can be placed on a House committee or subcommittee
