SOURCE: Page 9, line 40; (06)MO035404.9. -->     Page 9, between lines 40 and 41, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 14-23-4-6; (06)MO035404.29. -->     "SECTION 29. IC 14-23-4-6 IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2006]: Sec. 6. (a) Pro rata payments to a county shall be made at the close of each fiscal year on a fiscal year basis. The payments shall be made to the county by certification on the part of the department of the specific amounts due the county upon submission by the county of state vouchers stating the amounts due. The payments shall be made by the department in the same manner and procedure as other voucher claims upon the state are paid.
    (b) Subject to subsection (c), fifty percent (50%) of the payments made to each county under this section shall be appropriated and equally distributed to the volunteer fire departments within the county that have a cooperative lease agreement or contract with the division of forestry. However,

     (c) Unless the county legislative body allows a greater distribution, each fire department is limited to receiving a maximum annual distribution under this section of one thousand dollars ($1,000).".
    Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
