ambulance awards to qualified ambulance service personnel determined to be entitled to an award

Amounts necessary to pay the Cooper/Sams volunteer ambulance award are appropriated from
the Cooper/Sams volunteer ambulance trust account to the board.
(b) If the state of Minnesota is unable to meet its financial obligations as they become
due, the board shall undertake all necessary steps to discontinue paying Cooper/Sams volunteer
ambulance awards until the state of Minnesota is again able to meet its financial obligations
as they become due.
    Subd. 2. General creditors of the state. The trust account is at all times subject to a levy
under an execution of any general creditor of the state of Minnesota, and if no other funds are
