15       76-2056. (a) The state historical society may permit the use of facilities
16       and real property under the control of the society by groups for such
17       special events as the society determines are in the public interest and will
18       further the purposes of the society. The society shall adopt policies and
19       guidelines for such use, consistent with the provisions of this section.
20           (b) The state historical society may establish a schedule of reasonable
21       fees for the use of its facilities or real property pursuant to this section.
22       The society shall remit all moneys received from such fees to the state
23       treasurer at least monthly. Upon receipt of such moneys, the state trea-
24       surer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury and credit it to

27       tion acts upon warrants of the director of accounts and reports issued
28       pursuant to vouchers approved by the secretary of the state historical
29       society or a person designated by the secretary.   Moneys in the fund shall
30       be expended only for the purpose of paying costs associated with the use
31       of facilities or real property pursuant to this section, including compen-
32       sation of any personnel needed to oversee such use.
33           (c) Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize a charge
34       for general admission to a facility or real property under the control of
35       the state historical society unless otherwise authorized by law.
36           (d) The state historical society may adopt such rules and regulations
37       as necessary to implement and administer the provisions of this section.
