Appropriation for payment of excess fire or tornado losses; reimbursement.

There is hereby appropriated from the Treasury the sum of $100,000.00 to be available only in case the loss by fire or tornado in any year shall exceed the premiums collected under the provisions of this chapter, and then only in such amount as may be required in addition to the amount of funds on deposit in the State Insurance Fund at the time of said loss for the payment thereof, less the amounts set aside in this chapter for the purpose of administration of the provisions of this chapter.

The first surplus next thereafter accruing to such fund shall be used to reimburse the Treasury for any amount which may have been drawn therefrom under this appropriation.
