Section 2. The State Treasurer is hereby directed to pay the same upon proper voucher drawn by the person, or by the attorney of such person, upon whom the fine was originally imposed when the said voucher is accompanied by a certificate of the Prothonotary of any of the several Counties showing that the said conviction of the lower court upon which the fine was imposed has been set aside by a higher court.

Section 3. This Act shall apply not only to all such fines imposed in the future but to all such fines imposed since the adjournment of the regular session of the 115th General Assembly.
