Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the state fair fee fund, which is hereby created.

(2) During each fiscal year, moneys in the state fair fee fund, and appropriations for the operation of the state fair from the state general fund made for the state fair, or the state fair board, may be transferred from the state treasury to a bank in Reno county, Kansas, to the account of the state fair board, upon vouchers of the state fair board, to establish the state fair board local bank account. The moneys in the state fair board local bank account may be used by the state fair board:

(A) In operating and conducting a state fair, including but not by way of limitation, the payment of labor, salaries of part-time employees, prizes and awards and as provided by this section; and
