When not in use by the extension division, and under their regulations, this equipment may be rented to other organizations for convention use. Any money derived from such rent shall be turned over to the state commissioner of public institutions. Any appropriations hereafter made to carry out the provisions and purposes of this section shall be expended through the state commissioner of public institutions.
