(a) The treasurer has authority to monitor all state funds and accounts created by the Legislature. The treasurer shall transfer, using the state's accounting system, the appropriate amount of excess funds whenever the Legislature has:

(2) Required that excess amounts are to revert or be deposited into the General Revenue Fund, school fund or other specified fund or account.
(b)(1) If a statutory provision provides that only a specified amount is allowed to remain in a fund from one fiscal year to another, the treasurer shall transfer the excess amount, as of the date specified by the provision, no later than August 15, of each year and give written notice of the transfer to all spending units that are authorized to use the fund or account.
(2) If a statutory provision provides for the transfer of excess amounts at a time other than the end of a fiscal year, the treasurer shall transfer the specified excess amounts within fifteen days of the time provided.
(c) The treasurer shall file quarterly reports with the Joint Committee on Government and Finance setting forth the accounts and funds from which excess funds were transferred and the amounts transferred.
