The superintendent of the state house shall establish and charge a fee or service
charge to nongovernmental individuals, entities and groups using the state house for
meetings, receptions or exhibits, which may be reduced at the discretion of the superintendent. The superintendent or a designee shall establish such fee or charge based upon the
actual cost of use, including personnel, requests for security, preparation, equipment
replacement, cleanup, utilities used and compensation for wear on the building. The superintendent, or a designee may, in the superintendent's discretion, require
a nongovernment entity to enter into a written agreement indemnifying the commonwealth
against any claims for casualty liability and may require the posting of an insurance
bond. All monies received by the superintendent under this section shall be by check made
payable to and deposited in the State House Special Event Fund, as established in
section 35P of chapter 10; provided, however, that the superintendent may retain funds to be expended after
consultation with the committee on rules of the 2 branches, acting concurrently, for
restoration, equipment repair and replacement and educational and cultural programs
and tours at the state house.
