§51-2A-22. Family court fund.
The office and the clerks of the circuit courts shall, on or
before the tenth day of each month, transmit all amounts directed
to be paid to the family court fund under any provision of this
code to the state treasurer for deposit in the state treasury to
the credit of a special revenue fund known as the "family court
fund" and created by prior enactment of former section
twenty-three, article four, chapter forty-eight-a of this code.
All moneys paid into the state treasury and credited to the "family
court fund" shall be used by the administrative office of the
supreme court of appeals solely for paying the costs associated
with the duties imposed upon the family courts under the provisions
of this article or under chapter forty-eight of this code which
require activities by the family court judges or members of their
staff which are not subject to being matched with federal funds or
subject to reimbursement by the federal government. Such moneys
shall not be treated by the auditor and treasurer as part of the
general revenue of the state. Expenditures from the fund shall be
for the purposes set forth in this section and are not authorized
from collections but are to be made only in accordance with
appropriation by the Legislature and in accordance with the
provisions of article three, chapter twelve of this code and upon
the fulfillment of the provisions set forth in article two, chapter five-a of this code: Provided
, That for the fiscal year ending the
thirtieth day of June, two thousand two, expenditures are
authorized from collections rather than pursuant to an
appropriation by the Legislature.
