University of Alabama Museum Fund.

There shall be a University of Alabama Museum Fund. All moneys received from gifts or bequests or from county or municipal appropriations or moneys appropriated by the State of Alabama shall be deposited by the Treasurer of the University of Alabama to the credit of said fund. There shall also be deposited in said fund all moneys received from any concession business conducted upon the land or water included in this bill and also any moneys accruing to the University of Alabama as an incident to the operation or ownership of the University of Alabama Museum, by virtue of the sale or rental of real or personal property or from whatsoever source. The said fund hereby created shall be used and expended by the University of Alabama in accordance with the terms of the gift, bequest, grant, appropriation or donation from which said moneys are derived, in the same manner, by the same authority and for the purposes stipulated in this chapter. In the absence of any such terms or stipulations, said moneys in said fund shall be expended by the University of Alabama in furtherance of any provisions of this chapter. All expenses of the University of Alabama Museum shall be payable from said fund by requisition in the same manner and under the same authority as other funds of the University of Alabama are expended; provided, no funds appropriated by the State of Alabama shall be withdrawn or expended for any purpose whatsoever unless the same shall have been allotted in accordance with the provisions of Article 4 of Chapter 4 of Title 41 of this code, and only in the amounts and for the purposes provided by the Legislature in the general appropriation bill. It is not the intent of this article to require the University of Alabama to support the University of Alabama Museum from its educational appropriations or its other educational resources, but only from those sources of income set forth herein, including state appropriations for the said Museum Fund.
