“The premium on all policies of insurance issued by the State Fiscal Accountability Authority shall be paid by the officer, official, or trustee having the property insured under his care and custody upon demand of the authority. If an agency or political subdivision fails to pay any required premium within sixty days from the date the premium is invoiced, the State Fiscal Accountability Authority may cancel the policy for nonpayment of premium by mailing a notice of cancellation giving not less than thirty days’ notice of the cancellation to the delinquent agency or political subdivision. Prior to the termination of the insurance coverage, notice of the impending termination also must be published in a newspaper of regular circulation in the county where the insured’s headquarters is located. The State Fiscal Accountability Authority is not responsible for risk or loss occurring after the effective date of the cancellation.”
