    Sec. 12. Expenses incurred by commission. Any expense or obligation incurred by the financial planning and supervision commission under this Act shall be payable solely from appropriations made for that purpose by the General Assembly.
    The commission is authorized to maintain monies appropriated for its use in a local account for such purposes to be held outside the State Treasury. Disbursements from this account shall require the approval and signatures of the chairman of the commission and the treasurer of the commission. The commission shall be authorized to request the State Comptroller and State Treasurer to issue State warrants against appropriations made for its use, in anticipation of commission expenses, for deposit into the local account.
    The compensation and expenses of a financial advisor retained by the commission shall be paid from monies appropriated to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity for that purpose. Those appropriations shall only be committed, obligated, and expended by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity as the result of an order signed by the chairman of the commission identifying the selected "financial advisor" pursuant to subsection (c) of Section 6 of this Act and stating the maximum compensation awarded to the financial advisor under the contract. A copy of the order shall be filed with the State Comptroller prior to any disbursement of funds.
