There is hereby established in the state treasury the Ohio expositions fund. Except for gifts and bequests of money accepted under division (B)(3) of section 991.03 of the Revised Code, all moneys collected by the Ohio expositions commission pursuant to sections 991.01 to 991.07 of the Revised Code and any income generated from the investment of those moneys shall be paid into the fund and may be used to defray the costs of administration and carrying out the purposes of sections 991.01 to 991.07 of the Revised Code.
With the approval of the director of budget and management, provisions may be made for a cash fund to be established on the state fairgrounds during the period of activities related to the holding of the annual state fair. The purpose of such fund is to provide for payment of premiums and entertainers and for immediate payment of small amounts for obligations, including ticket refunds, of such nature as to require immediate payment.
The expositions commission shall cause to be kept an accurate record of all transactions, contracts, and proceedings. The director of budget and management shall prescribe a system of accounting and reporting. Such system shall include methods and forms showing the sources from which all revenues of the expositions commission are received, the amount collected from each source, and the amount expended for each purpose.
