The appointing authority of a department or agency of the state, subject to the regulations hereinafter mentioned and to the extent that appropriations are available therefor, may reimburse persons for travel expenses incurred in travel necessary to attend interviews conducted by such department or agency for appointment to positions in the service of the state for which there exists in New York state a shortage of qualified candidates.

Travel expenses shall be payable after audit and upon the warrant of the comptroller in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.
