§14-2-28. Award as condition precedent to appropriation.

     (a) It is the policy of the Legislature to make no appropriation to pay any claims against the state, cognizable by the court, unless the claim has first been passed upon by the court.

     (b) Because a decision of the court is a recommendation to the Legislature based upon a finding of moral obligation, and the enactment process of passage of legislation authorizing payments of claims recommended by the court is at legislative discretion, no right of appeal exists to findings and award recommendations of the court of claims and they are not subject to judicial review.
