Section: Environmental Program Fee Fund
3. Notwithstanding any law, rule or regulation to the contrary, and beginning with each State fiscal year commencing on and after July 1 next following the effective date of this act, there shall be established in the department a non-lapsing revolving fund to be known as the "Environmental Program Fee Fund," hereinafter referred to as "the fund." The fund shall contain a separate subaccount for fees imposed for each specific program. All fees collected by the department shall be deposited in the appropriate subaccount. The fee revenues deposited in each subaccount shall be appropriated and used only for the costs of the program for which the fees were imposed; provided, however, that if the report required to be prepared by the department pursuant to section 2 of this act is not received by the Legislature by December 31 of any fiscal year, all unobligated revenues in each subaccount in the fund, for which a report has not been received by the Legislature, may not be used to support the designated program until such time as the report on the subaccount or subaccounts has been received by the Legislature. An additional appropriation shall not be required in order for the department to expend monies from a subaccount for which a report is received by the Legislature after December 31.
