§ 371. “The Balance Shall, in Accordance with this Constitution, be Paid to the Several States.”

“The balance” is the balance of the net revenue from customs and excise. This section does not affect any revenue of the Commonwealth which may be derived from other sources; but merely requires that three-fourths of the net revenue from customs and excise shall either be distributed among the States, on the basis of secs. 89 and 93 or expended in payment of the interest on the debts of the States, under sec. 105.
