ADMINISTRATIVE FISCAL AFFAIRS REGULATED
                 Act of Apr. 23, 1909, P.L. 146, No. 100              Cl. 72
                                  AN ACT

     Prescribing a method for disbursing and accounting for certain
        appropriations to departments, bureaus, commissions, and
        other branches of the State government.

        Section 1.  Be it enacted, &c., That hereafter when any
     appropriation is made to any department, bureau, commission,
     board of trustees, overseers, managers, and other persons in
     charge of institutions owned and controlled by the State, in
     whole or in part, and which are known as State and semi-State
     institutions, or other branch of the government of this
     Commonwealth, which is intended for expenses of such a nature as
     to make it impracticable for said department, bureau,
     commission, board of trustees, overseers, managers, and other
     persons in charge of institutions owned and controlled by the
     State, in whole or in part, and which are known as State and
     semi-State institutions, or other branch of the government of
     the Commonwealth, to file with the Auditor General itemized
     receipts or vouchers prior to the advance by the accounting
     officers of funds sufficient to meet such expenses, it shall be
     lawful for such department, bureau, commission, board of
     trustees, overseers, managers, and other persons in charge of
     institutions owned and controlled by the State, in whole or in
     part, and which are known as State and semi-State institutions,
     or other branch of the State Government, to make requisition
     upon the Auditor General, from time to time, for such sum or
     sums of the appropriation as may be necessary to meet such
     expenses; and the Auditor General, after the approval of said
     requisition by himself and the State Treasurer, shall draw his
     warrant upon the latter officer for such sum or sums, to be paid
     out of the appropriation, as in the discretion of the Auditor
     General may be necessary. Said department, bureau, commission,
     board of trustees, overseers, managers, and other persons in
     charge of institutions owned and controlled by the State, in
     whole or in part, and which are known as State and semi-State
     institutions, or other branch of the State Government, shall,
     whenever required by the Auditor General, file specifically
     itemized vouchers, in such form as may be prescribed by him,
     accounting for all money expended out of said advance. All
     balances in the hands of said department, bureau, commission,
     board of trustees, overseers, managers, and other persons in
     charge of institutions owned and controlled by the State, in
     whole or in part, and which are known as State and semi-State
     institutions, or other branch of the State Government, at the
     end of the appropriation period for which expenses have not been
     incurred, shall be returned to the State Treasurer before any
     advance is made out of any succeeding appropriation for the same
     purpose: Provided, however, That the funds so advanced shall be
     deposited, in the name of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, by
     the officer or institution to whom or which said advancement is
     made, in a depository approved by the Board of Revenue
     Commissioners, and the name of such bank or depository certified
     to the State Treasurer: And provided further, That the
     advancement shall never, in any case, exceed the amount of the
     bond of the officer or individual having control of the
     disbursements from the funds so advanced.
        (1 amended Jun. 2, 1915, P.L.726, No.334)
