Joint Budget Committee. The state historical society operates a state museum and a number of separate community museums throughout the state. Revenues generated by the community museums are currently deposited in the enterprise services cash fund, which is appropriated for the costs of carrying out the general activities of the historical society. The bill deposits revenues from the community museums in a new community museums cash fund which would be appropriated specifically for the activities of the community museums.
