collected under this section shall be deposited in the natural resources fund and credited
to the state parks account. Money in the account, except for the electronic licensing

park system.

new text begin (b) State parks and recreation areas shall remain open for camping and other
recreational activities, regardless of whether all or any part of the biennial appropriation
law for the state parks and recreation areas has been enacted. The amount necessary for
operations of state parks and recreation areas when the biennial appropriation law has not
been enacted is appropriated from the state parks account in the natural resources fund. 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.
