§51-4-11. Report by circuit clerk to auditor of claims allowed
against state; duties of auditor; penalty.
It shall be the duty of the clerk of the circuit court of each
county, in addition to the reports of fines, jurors and witnesses
otherwise provided for by law, to transmit to the auditor, within
thirty days after the adjournment of each term of the court, a
report of all claims allowed and certified by such court for
payment out of the state treasury. Such report shall show in whose
favor the claim is allowed, for what purpose and the amount
thereof. It shall be the duty of the auditor to furnish the clerk
with blank forms for such reports, and, when made out and returned
to the auditor, he shall cause the same to be recorded in a book to
be kept by him for that purpose.
If any clerk or the auditor fail to perform any duty required
in this section he shall forfeit one hundred dollars.
