(1) The agricultural conservation easements account is created in the custody of the
state treasurer. All receipts from legislative appropriations, other sources as directed by the legislature,
and gifts, grants, or endowments from public or private sources must be deposited
into the account. Expenditures from the account may be used only for the purchase of easements in
perpetuity or for the purchase or lease of easements for a fixed term under the agricultural
conservation easements program. Only the state conservation commission, or the executive director of the commission
on the commission's behalf, may authorize expenditures from the account. The account is subject to allotment procedures under chapter 43.88 RCW, but an appropriation
is not required for expenditures.
(2) The commission is authorized to receive and expend gifts, grants, or endowments
from public or private sources that are made available, in trust or otherwise, for
the use and benefit of the agricultural conservation easements program.
