    8  payment which the department deems to be commercially viable or
    9  cost-effective. If payment is made by warrant, the warrant must
   10  be delivered by the eligible nonprofit scholarship-funding
   11  organization to the private school of the parent’s choice, and
   12  the parent shall restrictively endorse the warrant to the
   13  private school. If payment is made by funds transfer, the parent
   14  must approve each payment before the scholarship funds may be
   15  deposited. The parent may not designate any entity or individual
   16  associated with the participating private school as the parent’s
   17  attorney in fact to endorse a scholarship warrant or approve a
   18  funds transfer.
