Section 1. Section 58-3-100 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

"Section 58-3-100. The expenses of the Public Service Commission shall be borne by the several companies subject to its jurisdiction according to their gross income from operations in this State, such gross income to be proportionate to the number of miles operated in this State by transportation and transmission companies, to be apportioned by the Comptroller General. The Comptroller General shall, on or before the first day of October in each and every year, assess upon each of such companies its just proportion of such expenses in proportion to its gross income from the operation in this State in the current year ending on the thirtieth day of June preceding that on which the assessment is made. Such assessments shall be charged against such companies, respectively, under the order and direction of the Comptroller General, and be collected by the several county treasurers in the manner provided by law for the collection of taxes from such companies and shall be paid by the county treasurers as collected into the State Treasury in the manner as other taxes collected by them for the State.

The Public Service Commission shall certify to the Comptroller General annually on or before August first the amounts to be assessed, in the format approved by the Comptroller General."

The Public Service Commission shall certify to the Comptroller General annually on or before August first the amounts to be assessed in the format approved by the Comptroller General."

The Public Service Commission shall certify to the Comptroller General annually on or before August first the amounts to be assessed in the format approved by the Comptroller General."
