Costs recovered
Executive (EXC) CHAPTER 18, ARTICLE 5
§ 64. Costs recovered. Costs recovered by the attorney-general may be
applied by him in payment of the expenses incurred by him in the action
or proceeding in which they are received, or of any expenditure which he
is authorized to incur not otherwise provided for. He shall, at the
close of each fiscal year, render to the comptroller an account of such
costs received, with vouchers of such expenditures. During the fiscal
year, the comptroller is authorized to transfer any amount available
within the account dedicated for this purpose to the general fund, upon
the request of the director of the budget. In the event insufficient
cash remains in such account to meet expenditures against available
appropriations from such account, the comptroller is authorized to
transfer the amounts necessary to meet such expenditures from the
general fund; provided however that in no event shall the cumulative
value of any such transfers from the general fund made to such account
within a single fiscal year exceed ten percent of the value of the
appropriations made in such fiscal year from such account or the
cumulative balance of transfers from the account to the general fund.
The comptroller shall establish such accounts and records as are
necessary to provide an accurate accounting and reporting of the
transfers to or from the general fund.
