§ 28-42-30. Replacement of unauthorized expenditures from administration account.
If any money received from the Secretary of Labor under Title III of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. § 501 et seq., or any unencumbered balances in the employment security administration account as of that date, any moneys granted after that date to this state pursuant to the provisions of the Wagner-Peyser Act, 29 U.S.C. § 49 et seq., or any moneys made available by this state or its political subdivisions and matched by the moneys granted to this state pursuant to 29 U.S.C. § 49 et seq., are found by the Secretary of Labor, because of any action or contingency, to have been lost or been expended for purposes other than, or in amounts in excess of, those found necessary by the Secretary of Labor for the proper administration of chapters 42 — 44 of this title, it is the policy of this state that those moneys shall be replaced by moneys appropriated for those purposes from the general funds of this state to the employment security administration account for expenditures as provided in § 28-42-29. Upon receipt of notice of this finding by the Secretary of Labor, the director shall promptly report the amount required for that replacement to the governor and the governor shall, at the earliest opportunity, submit to the legislature a request for the appropriation of that amount. This section shall not be construed to relieve this state of its obligations with respect to funds received prior to July 1, 1941, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 501 et seq.
