accordance with the provisions of sections one and two, article
three, chapter fifty of this code and section eleven, article one,
chapter fifty-nine of this code for deposit in the State Treasury
to the credit of a special revenue fund to be known as the Court

Affairs and Public Safety in administering this fund, which
expenses may not in any fiscal year exceed the lesser of three
percent of the funds deposited into the court security fund or
thirty thousand dollars. Amounts collected which are found from
time to time to exceed the funds needed for the purposes set forth
in this article may be transferred to other accounts or funds and
redesignated for other purposes upon appropriation by the Legislature.

contrary, after the thirtieth day of June, two thousand, the court
security board shall transfer such amounts from the Court Security
Fund as may, from time to time, be directed by the Legislature in
