(1) A monetary allowance shall be paid quarterly to the post commander of each Florida National Guard armory from funds appropriated to the Department of Military Affairs, upon the approval of the Adjutant General, based on a calculation of need determined by the Adjutant General, exclusive of any space utilized and maintained by a federally funded activity of the Florida National Guard. The allowance shall cover costs for the operation, maintenance, and repair of the armory facilities. The amount of the allowance shall be computed by the Adjutant General as of June 30 of each year for purposes of determining the total amounts payable for inclusion in his or her budget request to the Legislature.
(2) Payment of all allowances authorized under this section are subject to rules prescribed by the Adjutant General, and all moneys paid are public moneys and must be accounted for as prescribed by rules. All funds must be deposited into a federal depository approved by the Department of Military Affairs.
(3) If an insufficient appropriation is made to the Department of Military Affairs to pay the allowances set forth in subsection (1), or if for other sufficient reason the amounts require redistribution among the National Guard armories, the amount to be paid to such armories shall be adjusted as administratively determined by the Adjutant General. Each post commander is responsible for the proper receipt and distribution of the post armory operations allowance, as directed by the Department of Military Affairs.
