This fund shall comprise all appropriations made by the Legislature for the support of the current operating program and shall be apportioned and distributed to the Florida College System institution districts of the state on the basis of procedures established by law and rules of the State Board of Education. The annual apportionment for each Florida College System institution district shall be distributed monthly in payments as nearly equal as possible.
(2) Performance funding for industry certifications for Florida College System institutions is contingent upon specific appropriation in the General Appropriations Act and shall be determined as follows:
