Nebraska Revised Statute 77-2215

Chapter 77 Section 2215

77-2215.

Lost warrants; replacement issued; conditions; stop-payment order.

(1) Whenever it shall be made to appear to the satisfaction of any officer, except the Director of Administrative Services, authorized by law to issue warrants, that any warrant issued by him or her has been lost or destroyed, such officer shall have authority to issue a replacement thereof. No replacement warrant shall be issued until the party applying for the same shall make an affidavit that such party was the owner of the original warrant and shall also file with such officer an indemnity bond with good and sufficient security, conditioned to refund any money received by the party or his or her assigns on such replacement in case of presentation and payment of the original by the treasurer upon whom the same is drawn, whether upon a genuine endorsement thereon or otherwise. The payee of any lost or destroyed warrant shall not be required to file an indemnity bond when the affidavit shows that such payee has not received such lost or destroyed warrant and cannot reasonably expect to receive it.

(2) Whenever it shall have come to the attention of the Director of Administrative Services that an outstanding warrant has not been presented for payment, the Director of Administrative Services shall immediately issue a stop-payment order and notify the State Treasurer of the issuance of such order. After the expiration of seven working days from the issuance of such order, if in the meantime such outstanding warrant has not been presented for payment, the Director of Administrative Services shall have authority to issue a replacement thereof. In an emergency, the Director of Administrative Services may immediately issue such replacement warrant.
