Department of Natural Resources
The fund receives money from various sources including gifts, grants, bequests; plus rentals, bonuses, royalties, etc. from the removal of minerals, coal, oil, gas, timber or other resources from State-owned land acquired by Game and Fish Protection Fund monies. Initially, the major source of funds was $8 million that had been generated under the former Kammer recreational land acquisition trust fund act. Money was also received during fiscal years 1985-87 from oil and gas royalties from state lands bought by game and fish protection funds that would ordinarily have gone into an account created by the former Kammer act. The interest and earnings plus $6,000,000 as authorized in 2001 PA 50 from this Trust Fund are deposited in the Game and Fish Protection Fund for expenditure.
