§6-2-10a. Additional bonds of county clerks.
The official bond provided for in section ten of this article,
relating to county clerks, shall be deemed to apply only to
collection of local fees. The state auditor, on behalf of the
general school fund, and the state conservation commissioner, on
behalf of the state conservation commission, shall require from the
county clerk of any county such additional bonds as are deemed
necessary, and in such amounts as are deemed adequate to protect
the general school funds and the state conservation funds in the
hands of such clerk. The auditor and the state conservation
commissioner shall require corporate surety bonds and pay the
necessary premiums from the said general school funds and the said
state conservation fund on said additional bonds, but the amount of
such additional bonds shall not exceed the amount of the state
funds handled by such clerk during the preceding fiscal year.
