The Utah State Constitution, Article XIII, Sec. 11 prohibits state spending in excess of revenue except to "suppress insurrections, defend the State or assist in defending the United States in time of war."

In the U.S. Navy, a commanding officer who overspends his command's quarterly funds is subject to a $10,000 fine. The governor or any legislator who violates the state constitution by spending beyond the revenue provided by law should resign or be impeached.Richard L. Partridge
