One dollar and twenty-five cents of each fee collected under sections 4519.04 and 4519.09 of the Revised Code shall be paid into the state bureau of motor vehicles fund created by section 4501.25 of the Revised Code. All other fees, and all taxes and fines levied, charged, or referred to in this chapter, unless otherwise designated by law, shall be deposited into the state treasury to the credit of the state recreational vehicle fund, which is hereby created. The state recreational vehicle fund shall be used for the purpose of enforcing and administering the law relative to the registration and operation of snowmobiles, off-highway motorcycles, and all-purpose vehicles within the state, for the purpose of expanding the activities of the department of natural resources to provide trails and other areas for the operation of such vehicles on state-controlled land and waters, for the purchase of additional land to be used for such purposes, and for the development and implementation by the department of programs relating to the safe use and enjoyment of snowmobiles, off-highway motorcycles, and all-purpose vehicles.
All investment earnings of the state recreational vehicle fund shall be credited to the fund.
Notwithstanding section 1501.01 of the Revised Code, nothing in this section authorizes the appropriation of property to provide trails and other areas for the operation of snowmobiles, off-highway motorcycles, and all-purpose vehicles.
