and the same is hereby amended so that it shall hereafter read
"(1). Each district, county, and precinct officer receiving an
annual salary as compensation shall be entitled, subject to the
provisions of this Section, to issue warrants against the salary
fund created for his office in payment of the services of deputies,
assistants, clerks, stenographers, and investigators, for such
amounts as said employees may be entitled to receive for services
performed under their authorizations of employment. And
such officer shall be entitled to file claims for and issue warrants
in payment of all actual and necessary expenses incurred by
him in the conduct of his office, such as stationery, stamps, telephone,
traveling expenses, premiums on deputies' bonds, and
other necessary expenses. If such expenses be incurred in connection
with any particular case, such claim shall state such
case. All such claims shall be subject to the audit of the county
auditor; and if it appears that any item of such expense was
not incurred by such officer, or such item was not a necessary
expense of office, or such claim is incorrect or unlawful, such
item shall be by such auditor rejected, in which case the correctness,
legality, or necessity of such item may be adjudicated
in any Court of competent jurisdiction. Provided, the Assessor
and Collector of Taxes shall be authorized in like manner annually
to incur and pay for insurance premiums in a reasonable
sum for policies to carry insurance against loss of funds by
fire, burglary, or theft.
"At the close of each month of the tenure of his office, each
officer named herein shall make as a part of the report required
by Subsection (o) of this Section an itemized and sworn statement
of all expense claims paid during said month. And said
report shall give the name, position, and amount paid to each
authorized employee of such officer. Such deputies, assistants,
clerks, or other employees as well as expenses shall be paid from
the Officers' Salary Fund in cases in which the officer is on a
salary basis, and from fees earned and collected by such officer
in all cases in which the officer is compensated on a basis of
fees earned by him.
