§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.
