(b) Take such other action that the board determines is necessary and appropriate for the benefit of the beneficiary of the award.
(2) Payment of claims is subject to availability of funds for benefit awards as provided in the board’s current biennial budget approved by the Legislative Assembly or the Emergency Board. [1999 c.981 §11; 2003 c.295 §6]
