and credited to an account in the special revenue fund, and are annually appropriated to

or any part of the biennial appropriation law for the zoo has been enacted. Appropriations
under this section shall be used for operations of the zoo when the biennial appropriation
law has not been enacted. If, by July 1 of an odd-numbered year, legislation has not been
enacted to appropriate money to the commissioner of management and budget for central
accounting, procurement, payroll, and human resources functions, amounts necessary to
operate those functions for the purpose of this paragraph are appropriated from the general
fund to the commissioner of management and budget. As necessary, the commissioner
may transfer a portion of this appropriation to other state agencies to support carrying out
these functions. Any subsequent appropriation to the commissioner of management and
budget for a biennium in which this paragraph has been applied supersedes and replaces
the funding authorized in this paragraph.
