    (b) There is hereby created the Indiana tobacco master settlement agreement fund for the purpose of depositing and distributing money received under the master settlement agreement. The fund consists of:
        (1) all money received by the state under the master settlement agreement;
        (2) appropriations made to the fund by the general assembly; and
        (3) grants, gifts, and donations intended for deposit in the fund; and

However, the fund does not include any amounts that are sold and assigned to the tobacco settlement authority under a sales agreement entered into under IC 4-4-31.

        STEP ONE: Determine the sum of money received or to be received by the state under the master settlement agreement before July 1, 2001.
        STEP TWO: Subtract from the STEP ONE sum the amount appropriated by P.L.273-1999, SECTION 8, to the children's health insurance program from funds accruing to the state from the tobacco settlement for the state fiscal years beginning July 1, 1999, and July 1, 2000.

    (f) (e) The following amounts shall be retained in the fund and may not be expended, transferred, or otherwise distributed from the fund:
        (1) All of the money that is received by the state under the master settlement agreement and remains in the fund after the expenditures, transfers, or distributions permitted under subsections (c) through (e). (d).

        (2) All interest that accrues from investment of money in the fund, unless specifically appropriated by the general assembly. Interest that is appropriated from the fund by the general assembly may not be considered in determining the maximum amount of expenditures, transfers, or distributions under subsection (e). (d).
    (g) (f) The fund shall be administered by the budget agency. Notwithstanding IC 5-13, the treasurer of state shall invest the money in the fund not currently needed to meet the obligations of the fund in the same manner as money is invested by the public employees retirement fund under IC 5-10.3-5. The treasurer of state may contract with investment management professionals, investment advisors, and legal counsel to assist in the investment of the fund and may pay the state expenses incurred under those contracts from the fund. Interest

that accrues from these investments shall be deposited in the fund. Money in the fund at the end of the state fiscal year does not revert to the state general fund.
    (h) (g) The state general fund is not liable for payment of a shortfall in expenditures, transfers, or distributions from the Indiana tobacco master settlement agreement fund or any other fund due to a delay, reduction, or cancellation of payments scheduled to be received by the state under the master settlement agreement. If such a shortfall occurs in any state fiscal year, the budget agency shall make the full transfer to the regional health facilities construction account and then reduce all remaining expenditures, transfers, and distributions affected by the shortfall.
