      (b)   In no event may any such imprest fund be used to pay regular employees' salaries or current accounts which are payable monthly, except that imprest funds may be used to pay amounts to employees to correct payroll errors in accordance with procedures and limitations adopted therefor by the director of accounts and reports and approved by the secretary of administration. In accordance with procedures and limitations adopted by the director of accounts and reports and approved by the secretary of administration, imprest funds may be increased when, in the judgment of the secretary of administration, such increase is reasonably necessary.
