(a) Except as provided by Section 201.081 , the state board shall deposit all money and securities received by it in the state treasury to the credit of a special fund known as the state soil conservation fund.  That fund shall be appropriated to the state board for use in the administration of this chapter and is subject to the same care and control while in the state treasury as other funds of the state.

(b) The financial transactions of the state board are subject to audit by the state auditor in accordance with Chapter 321, Government Code.

(c) The state board by resolution may authorize the chairman of the board or the administrative officer to approve claims and accounts payable by the board.  That approval is sufficient to authorize the comptroller of public accounts to issue a warrant drawn on the funds appropriated to the board for payment of the claim and is sufficient to authorize the comptroller to honor payment of the warrant.

(d) The state board may accept any donation or contribution in any form, including money, materials, or services, and from any source for the purpose of carrying out this chapter, including the cost of conducting the annual meeting of conservation district directors under Section 201.081 of this code.
