Such appropriations as may be necessary for the purpose of controlling, suppressing, or preventing the spread of any communicable or preventable disease in the State or in any county thereof shall be allocated by the legislature out of the proceeds of the state general fund. The department shall include in its budgetary request for each upcoming fiscal period, the amounts necessary to effectuate the purposes of this section.
