The Washington state heritage center account is created in the custody of the state treasurer. All moneys received under RCW 36.18.010(11) and 43.07.128 must be deposited in the account. Expenditures from the account may be made only for the following purposes:
(1) Payment of the certificate of participation issued for the Washington state heritage center;
(2) Capital maintenance of the Washington state heritage center; and
(3) Program operations that serve the public, relate to the collections and exhibits housed in the Washington state heritage center, or fulfill the missions of the state archives, state library, and capital museum.
Only the secretary of state or the secretary of state's designee may authorize expenditures from the account. An appropriation is not required for expenditures, but the account is subject to allotment procedures under chapter 43.88 RCW. During the 2011-2013 fiscal biennium, the legislature may appropriate from the Washington state heritage center account for the purposes of state arts, historical, and library programs. Additionally, during the 2011-2013 fiscal biennium, the legislature may transfer from the Washington state heritage center account to the state general fund such amounts as reflect the excess fund balance of the fund.
