Note

The Constitution requires money in the Permanent Higher Education Fund (0346) to be transferred to the National Research University Fund on January 1, 2010. Money may not be appropriated or distributed from the research fund before September 1, 2011. This fund was originally set up as the National Research University Fund (NRUF). It was renamed and the purpose changed because the NRUF is actually a fund outside the treasury. The change was effective 5/30/12.
