There is created in the General Fund of the State Treasury a State Capitol Operating Account. Moneys credited to the account are appropriated continuously to the Legislative Administration Committee to pay the expenses of operating, maintaining, protecting and insuring the State Capitol and to reimburse the State Parks and Recreation Department for a share of the expenses of ground maintenance, utilities and other necessary expenses.
The Legislative Administration Committee may on behalf of the State of Oregon solicit and accept gifts, grants and donations from public and private sources for the purposes set out in ORS 276.002 (Control of State Capitol). Such gifts, grants and donations shall be deposited by the committee in separate, appropriate trust accounts until such time as required to meet the obligations for which the gifts, grants or donations were intended.
A gift or donation to the Legislative Administration Committee is a gift or donation to the State of Oregon.
