2. In addition, no state agency, department or institution shall enter, renew or extend any contract for work on any aspect of a capital project funded by the general fund. Any such contract shall be submitted to the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget for prior written approval. Any amounts to be paid on existing contracts for general fund capital projects may be made only upon presentation of proper documentation to the Director of actual obligations and expenses which are due and owing under a contract entered prior to the effective date of this act."

(This amendment reverts general fund from capital projects provided in Chapter 847 of the Acts of Assembly of 2007. The projects are frozen at the current project stage until funding is restored.)
