There is no separate reference for the finance instructions in the handbook. However, a stake president or bishop can authorize the duplication of sections of the handbook for high councilors and others as needed (see p. xiii). I am the stake financial clerk, and my stake president has authorized me to have a copy of "Chapter 16: Finances" of the 2006 CHI Book 1.
It's certainly reasonable for you to make such a request of your bishop (but you might want to wait another 3-4 days, since the new 2010 handbook will be released on November 13). But of course, the decision is up to him as to which portions, if any, he would like you to have.
