§ 5106. Salary deduction for hospitalization insurance and dues

The State Treasurer shall, upon written directions received by him from any State employee, deduct from such employee's salary such sum as the employee shall in writing direct for hospitalization insurance, and other Group insurance programs, for membership fees in a school employees' organization and for credit unions managed by and for state employees and pay such deducted sum as he shall be directed, and the Budget Director shall give approval thereto. Deduction must be equal monthly amounts in excess of one dollar and the State Treasurer shall make such rules and regulations as he may deem necessary concerning the number of billings per month, preparation of billing lists, and the number of deductions per month for insurance purposes.

Section 2. Nothing contained in this Act shall be construed to make the State Treasurer, Budget Director, or any employee thereof liable in any manner whatsoever, other than for an accurate accounting of any monies so deducted, as such officers and their employees shall be deemed to be acting in so doing as a matter of courtesy and convenience for the person so directing the retention and payment of part of his salary as aforesaid.
