192.55 PAYMENTS TO BE MADE THROUGH ADJUTANT GENERAL.
All pay and allowances and necessary expenses for any of the military forces shall, when
approved by the adjutant general, be paid by commissioner of finance's warrants issued to the
several officers and enlisted members entitled thereto; provided, that upon the request of the
adjutant general, approved by the governor, the sum required for any such pay or allowances and
necessary expenses shall be paid by commissioner of finance's warrant to the adjutant general,
who shall immediately pay and distribute the same to the several officers or enlisted members
entitled thereto or to their commanding officers or to a finance officer designated by the adjutant
