27.15 State attorneys to assist in other circuits.--
(1) The Governor of the state may for good and sufficient reasons require any state attorney in the state to proceed to any place in the state and assist the state attorney holding office in the circuit where such place is located in the discharge of any of the duties of such state attorney. Any state attorney in this state who shall be so directed by the Governor to go and assist any other state attorney in the discharge of his or her duties shall immediately proceed to the place designated and assist the state attorney of the circuit in which such place is located in the performance of duties.
(2) When any state attorney is required to go beyond the limits of the circuit in which he or she holds office to comply with this section or on other official business performed at the direction of the Governor, the expenses that would otherwise not have been incurred but for the executive assignment shall be borne by the state and shall be paid from the appropriation provided by the state for the state attorney who is being assisted in the discharge of his or her duties. Other costs attendant to the prosecution of such cases shall be paid by the entity obligated to pay the expense in the absence of an executive assignment.
