Port district expenditures for industrial development, port promotion, or promotional hosting shall be pursuant to specific and separate budget items as approved by the port commission as a part of its annual budget, as the same may be amended or supplemented under the provisions of this act. The port commission shall adopt written rules and regulations governing the expenditure of port funds for promotional purposes and/or port hosting by port employees and agents. Such rules and regulations shall identify the employees and agents authorized to make such expenditures and shall state the objectives of such expenditures.

Reimbursement for all such expenditures shall be upon port voucher properly identified and approved by the port commission and audited in the same manner as are other port vouchers.
