  2.  Any expenses incurred or services performed on account of any bank, trust company or other corporation subject to the provisions of this chapter, outside of the normal expense of any annual or special examination, shall be charged to and paid by the corporation for whom they were incurred or performed.  Fees and charges to other corporations subject to this chapter should be reviewed at least annually by the division of finance to determine whether regulatory costs are offset by the fees and charges, and the director of the division of finance shall revise fees and charges to fully recover these costs.

  3.  The director of the division of finance shall prepare and maintain an equitable salary schedule for examiners, professional staff, and support personnel who are employees of the division.  Personnel employed by the division shall be compensated according to this schedule, provided that such expense of administering the banking laws is assessed and paid in accordance with this section.  The positions and classification plan for such personnel attributed to the examination of the state bank and trust companies shall allow for a comparison of such positions with similar bank examiner positions at federal bank regulatory agencies.  State bank examiner positions shall not be compensated more than ninety percent of parity for corresponding federal positions for similar geographic locations in Missouri as determined by the director of the division of finance.

  4.  The state treasurer shall credit such payments to a special fund to be known as the "Division of Finance Fund", which is hereby created and which shall be devoted solely to the payment of expenditures actually incurred by the division and attributable to the regulation of banks, trust companies, and other corporations subject to the jurisdiction of the division.  Any amount, other than the amount not to exceed fifteen percent for supporting services and the amount of fringe benefits described in subsection 1 of this section, remaining in such fund at the end of any fiscal year and any earnings attributed to such fund shall not be transferred and placed to the credit of the general revenue fund as provided in section 33.080, but shall be applicable by appropriation of the general assembly to the payment of such expenditures of the division in the succeeding fiscal year and shall be applied by the division to the reduction of the amount to be assessed to banks and trust companies in such succeeding fiscal year; provided the amount not to exceed fifteen percent for supporting services and the amount of fringe benefits described in subsection 1 of this section shall be returned to general revenue to the extent supporting services are not directly allocated to the fund.
