HB 1743 would allow the comptroller to adopt rules requiring that a state agency in the executive branch of state government to use a credit or charge card to pay for all purchases unless the comptroller determines that another method of payment is more advantageous to the state and prohibit an employee of a state agency in the executive branch of state government from using a personal credit or charge card to pay for the state agency ’s purchases. This wouldn't apply to institutions of higher education, the Health and Human Services Commission or select subsidiary agencies, or the office of the Governor.
Each health and human services commission shall implement policies that encourage participation in the comptroller's credit/charge card program for payment of travel services.
The comptroller would also need to adopt rules
for the effective and efficient administration of this chapter and
the travel provisions of the General Appropriations Act.
