(2) Required that excess amounts are to revert or be deposited into the general revenue fund, school fund or other specified fund or account.

(b)(1) If a statutory provision provides that only a specified amount is allowed to remain in a fund from one fiscal year to another, the treasurer shall transfer the excess amount, as of the date specified by the provision, no later than the fifteenth day of August of each year and give written notice of the transfer to all spending units that are authorized to use the fund or account.

(2) If a statutory provision provides for the transfer of excess amounts at a time other than the end of a fiscal year, the treasurer shall transfer the specified excess amounts within fifteen days of the time provided.
