(a) There may be allowed each year to the following officers, under rules and regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Public Safety, as follows: to general officers, and commanders of divisions, corps, groups, brigades, regiments, separate battalions, squadrons or similar organizations, not to exceed two hundred and twenty-five dollars ($225.00); to commanding officers of companies, batteries, troops, detachments and similar units not to exceed two hundred dollars ($200.00); to executive officers, adjutants, plans and training officers, logistical officers and commissioned officers in comparable assignments in divisions, corps, groups, brigades, regiments, battalions, squadrons and similar organizations, not to exceed two hundred dollars ($200.00). No officer shall be entitled to receive any part of the amounts named in this subsection unless the officer has performed satisfactorily all duties required of the officer by law and regulations and has pursued any course of instruction that may from time to time be required.

(b) There may be allowed annually to the supply sergeant of each company, battery, troop, detachment, and similar organizations, a sum of money not to exceed one hundred dollars ($100.00) for services satisfactorily performed.

(e) The commanding officers of all organizations participating in the appropriations herein made shall render an itemized statement of all funds received from any source whatever for the support of their respective organizations in the manner and on the forms prescribed by the Secretary through the Adjutant General. Failure on the part of any officer to submit promptly when due the financial statement of the officer's organization will be sufficient cause to withhold all appropriations for the organization.
