If the prosecuting attorney in a county with a population of less than seventy thousand one elects not to engage in the private practice of law, forty per cent of the difference between the compensation as a prosecuting attorney who elects not to engage in the private practice of law and the compensation for a prosecuting attorney in a county included in the same population class who engages in the private practice of law shall be paid to the general fund of the county from the state treasury from funds appropriated to the attorney general for the purpose of reimbursing the county for a part of the cost of paying the compensation to the prosecuting attorney electing not to engage in the private practice of law. If adequate funds have been appropriated by the general assembly for the purposes of this section, not later than the fifteenth day of March and September of each year, the attorney general shall reimburse the fiscal officer of the county the amount of compensation paid under this section, the related amount of employer contributions made under Chapter 145. of the Revised Code as required by the public employees retirement board, and the related amount of the payments to the social security administration for employer contributions for Medicare part A. The fiscal officer shall deposit the revenue in the county treasury.
