9. There is established in the Department of Transportation a fund to be known as the "Railroad and Transportation Museum Fund." The fund shall be credited with moneys received under subsection d. of section 4 of this act, and with any other moneys and appropriations obtained by the department for railroad and transportation museum purposes. All interest earned on the investment moneys in the fund shall be credited to the fund. Appropriations of moneys made by the Legislature to the commission or otherwise received by the commission for its administrative purposes shall be credited to the fund established under section 7 of this act until the expiration date of the commission under section 13 of this act. The moneys in the fund established by this section shall be administered by the Commissioner of Transportation, to be held thereby in the fund until appropriated by law. Moneys from the fund shall be used only for the purposes of a State railroad and transportation museum, including, but not limited to, the costs related to the establishment of the museum; the acquisition of a site for the museum; the selection and preparation of the architectural and interior design plans for the museum; and the acquisition, storage and security for railroad and transportation related equipment, memorabilia, books, papers and other documents for the museum. Not later than one year after the effective date of this act, and quarterly thereafter, the Commissioner of Transportation shall certify to the Legislature, the Department of the Treasury, and the commission until the date of its expiration under section 13 of this act, the total amount of moneys in the fund.
Moneys received by the fund to be used for an expressly specified purpose, such as, but not limited to, moneys expressly donated for the purchase of a certain type of railroad or transportation equipment for the railroad and transportation museum, shall be held in a restricted account within the fund. Interest earned on investment moneys in each restricted account shall be credited to the fund. The moneys in the fund shall be invested and reinvested in the same manner that trust funds in the custody of the State Treasurer are invested and reinvested.
