Full text
20. The above remuneration, and all the expenses incurred by the Commission in the performance of its duties and attributions, including all reasonable travelling expenses actually incurred by the members of the Commission, secretary, officers and employees of the Commission, and by such members of the staff of the Commission as may be required by the Commission, shall be paid out of the moneys voted annually for that purpose by Parliament and out of those received by the Commission in accordance with the second paragraph.
However, the Commission may
(1)  order that the expenses, except those relating to the salaries of its commissioners and regular employees, that it incurs in the exercise of its functions other than its audit functions with regard to municipalities and municipal bodies, be paid in whole or in part by the municipality it designates; and
(2)  order that the expenses it incurs in the exercise of its audit functions with regard to the accounts and affairs of a chief auditor of a municipality having 100,000 inhabitants or more be paid by that municipality.
The amount of the expenses referred to in the second paragraph shall then be established by a certificate signed by a member of the Commission or by its secretary; the certificate is final and may not be contested.

20. The above remuneration, and all the expenses incurred by the Commission in the performance of its duties and attributions, including all reasonable travelling expenses actually incurred by the members of the Commission, secretary, officers and employees of the Commission, and by such members of the staff of the Commission as may be required by the Commission, shall be paid out of the moneys voted annually for that purpose by Parliament.
If the Commission, however, deems it just so to do, it may order that the expenses incurred by it in the performance of its attributions, except those relating to the salaries of the commissioners and regular employees, be paid, wholly or in part, by the municipality it may designate. The amount of the expenses, in such case, shall be established by a certificate signed by a member of the Commission or by the secretary, and such certificate, so signed, shall be final and shall establish indisputably the exigibility of the debt from such municipality.
The amount of expenses established by such certificate may be recovered from the municipality by ordinary suit brought in the name of the Commission.
