SEC. 71-5-113. Funds received from the Social Security Board [Repealed effective July 1, 2008].
All monies received from the Social Security Board or its successors for the administration of this chapter shall be expended solely for the purposes and in the amounts found necessary by the Social Security Board or its successors for the proper and efficient administration of this chapter.
It shall be the duty of the department to take appropriate action with respect to the replacement, within a reasonable time, of any monies received from the Social Security Board, or its successors, for the administration of this chapter, and monies used to match grants pursuant to the provisions of the Wagner-Peyser Act, which the board, or its successors, find, because of any action or contingency, have been lost or have been expended for purposes other than, or in amounts in excess of those found necessary by the Social Security Board, or its successors, for the proper administration of this chapter. Funds which have been expended by the department or its agents in accordance with the budget approved by the Social Security Board, or its successors, or in accordance with the general standards and limitations promulgated by the Social Security Board, or its successors, prior to such expenditure (where proposed expenditures have not been specifically disapproved by the Social Security Board, or its successors), shall not be deemed to require replacement. To effectuate the purposes of this paragraph, it shall be the duty of the department to take such action to safeguard the expenditure of the funds referred to herein as it deems necessary. In the event of a loss of such funds or an improper expenditure thereof as herein defined, it shall be the duty of the department to notify the Governor of any such loss or improper expenditure and submit to him a request for an appropriation in the amount thereof. The Governor shall transmit to the next regular session of the Legislature following such notification, the department's request for an appropriation in an amount necessary to replace funds which have been lost or improperly expended as defined above. Such request of the department for an appropriation shall not be subject to the provisions of Sections 27-103-101 through 27-103-139. The Legislature recognizes its obligation to replace such funds as may be necessary and shall make necessary appropriations in accordance with such requests.
