§23-2C-6. Creation of new fund, old fund, mutualization transition fund, uninsured employer fund, self-insured employer guaranty risk pool, self-insured employer security risk pool, private carrier guaranty fund, and assigned risk fund.
(a) Effective upon the date upon which this enactment is made effective by the Legislature, there is hereby created in the State Treasury a "Workers' Compensation Old Fund", "Workers' Compensation New Fund", "Mutualization Transition Fund", "Workers' Compensation Uninsured Employers' Fund", "Self-insured Employer Guaranty Risk Pool", "Self-insured Employer Security Risk Pool", "Private Carrier Guaranty Fund" and an "Assigned Risk Fund". The Executive Director of the Workers' Compensation Commission shall have full authority to administer the old fund, the new fund, the mutualization transition fund, the uninsured employers' fund, the self-insured employer guaranty risk pool, the self-insured employer security risk pool and the private carrier guaranty fund until termination of the commission. As soon as practicable upon the establishment of the mutualization transition fund, the executive director shall cause thirty-five million dollars to be transferred from the Workers' Compensation Fund into the mutualization transition fund. All unencumbered funds remaining in the mutualization transition fund as of termination of the commission shall be transferred into the private carrier guaranty fund or, if the proclamation set forth in this article has not been issued, back to the Workers' Compensation Fund. Expenditures from the funds established by this section shall be upon appropriation of the Legislature except that during the fiscal year ending the thirtieth day of June, two thousand five, expenditures from the mutualization transition fund up to amounts expended for the purposes of this article are authorized rather than pursuant to an appropriation by the Legislature.

(b) If the proclamation set forth in this article is issued, then upon termination of the commission, the funds contained in the Workers' Compensation Fund shall be disbursed as follows: (1) A minimum of three hundred million dollars into the Workers' Compensation Old Fund, the exact amount of which shall be set forth in the Governor's proclamation provided in this article; (2) five million dollars into the uninsured employers' fund; and (3) the remainder into the new fund. Additionally, the funds contained in the guaranty pool provided in 85 CSR §19 (2004) shall be transferred into the self-insured employer guaranty risk pool created in this article.
