  4.  The general assembly may transfer from the general revenue fund to the supreme court publications revolving fund a sum not to exceed fifteen thousand dollars to enable the clerk of the supreme court to continue publications until sufficient funds have accumulated from sales of copies or subscriptions.  The clerk shall issue a warrant to the supreme court publications revolving fund at such time that he deems the balance in the fund sufficient, but not later than twenty-four months after the transfer from the general revenue fund, payable to the general revenue fund of the state to repay the money transferred to the supreme court publications revolving fund from the general revenue fund.
