Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, priority in the approval of submitted plan or plans shall be given to any county which satisfactorily shows to the state board that it has sufficient resources, through grants, gifts, excess levies, county bond funds, or any other money available to county boards, with which to defray the cost of its plan or plans where said plan or plans call for total expenditures in excess of the amounts designated for that county under the distribution schedule in section five of this article: Provided, That this requirement shall, in no way, deter the distribution to a county, with an approved plan or plans, which county has at least eighty percent of its bonding potential obligated.
In any event, at the end of two years from the effective date of this legislation, all counties' eligibility to their entitlement shall vest; however, said counties shall not receive said moneys until their comprehensive plan or plans have been approved by the state board.
