be promptly paid or credited to the United States Government, and the
balance divided between the State and the county in proportion to the
amount of the assistance paid by each respectively.

1937 (Sp. Sess.), ch. 12, sec. 17.

17. (Recovery From the Estate.) On the death of any recipient, the
total amount of assistance paid under this Article shall be allowed as a
preferred claim against his estate, ranking in order of priority, after
funeral expenses, and prior to all other claims and expenses. One-half of
the net amount realized from all such claims shall be promptly paid or
credited to the United States Government, provided, that no such claim
shall be enforced against any real estate of a recipient while it is occupied
by the recipient's surviving spouse or dependents.

1937 (Sp. Sess.), ch. 12, sec. 18. 1939; ch. 233, sec. 18.

18. (Removal to Another County.) Any applicant who has moved
into the county in which he applies within one year prior to application,
shall be deemed, for all purposes of this Article, a resident of the county
in which he last had one year's continuous residence. No recipient may
transfer his residence from one county to another without the written
consent of the County Departments of both counties, which consent shall
not transfer liability for his assistance to the county into which he shall
so remove.

1937 (Sp. Sess.), ch. 12, sec. 19. 1939, ch. 233, sec. 19.

19. (Annual Appropriations.) As long as the Federal Government
continues to appropriate and make available funds on a matching basis
of fifty per centum of all money expended for Old Age Assistance, the
County Commissioner's of each County and the Mayor and City Council
of Baltimore shall annually levy or appropriate a sum of money sufficient
to provide for one-sixth of all assistance paid or to be paid within said
county or city. In the event of the withdrawal of the participation of the
Federal Government, the County Commissioners of each county and the
Mayor and City Council of Baltimore City shall annually appropriate a
sum of money sufficient to provide for one-third of all assistance paid or to
be paid in said county or city. Provided, however, that the County Com-
missioners of each county and the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore
City shall not be obligated to pay out any sums as assistance in excess of
one-third of the total of all assistance paid or to be paid within said county
or city hereunder, except to the extent that funds may be available in the
State Treasury.

As long as the Federal Government continues to appropriate and make
available funds on a matching basis of fifty per cent of all money expended
for Old Age Assistance, the State Department shall allocate funds to each
county and the City of Baltimore to the extent of five-sixths of the amount
expended for Old Age Assistance for each person receiving old age as-
sistance under the provisions of this Article. In the event the Federal
Government discontinues grants in aid for Old Age Assistance, the State
shall allocate funds to each county and the City of Baltimore to the extent
of two-thirds of the amount expended for assistance under this Article.
Estimates shall be presented quarterly by the County Departments to the
State Department and, when approved, warrants shall be issued monthly
