210.20  Employees and assistants; distribution of funds.--

(1)  The division under the applicable rules of the Department of Management Services shall have the power to employ such employees and assistants and incur such other expenses as may be necessary for the administration of this part, within the limits of an appropriation for the operation of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation as may be authorized by the General Appropriations Act.

(2)  As collections are received by the division from such cigarette taxes, it shall pay the same into a trust fund in the State Treasury designated "Cigarette Tax Collection Trust Fund" which shall be paid and distributed as follows:

(a)  The division shall from month to month certify to the Comptroller the amount derived from the cigarette tax imposed by s. 210.02, less the service charges provided for in s. 215.20 and less 0.9 percent of the amount derived from the cigarette tax imposed by s. 210.02, which shall be deposited into the Alcoholic Beverage and Tobacco Trust Fund, specifying the amounts to be transferred from the Cigarette Tax Collection Trust Fund and credited on the basis of 2.9 percent of the net collections to the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund for Counties and 29.3 percent of the net collections for the funding of indigent health care to the Public Medical Assistance Trust Fund.

(b)  Beginning January 1, 1999, and continuing for 10 years thereafter, the division shall from month to month certify to the Comptroller the amount derived from the cigarette tax imposed by s. 210.02, less the service charges provided for in s. 215.20 and less 0.9 percent of the amount derived from the cigarette tax imposed by s. 210.02 which shall be deposited into the Alcoholic Beverage and Tobacco Trust Fund, specifying an amount equal to 2.59 percent of the net collections, and that amount shall be paid to the Board of Directors of the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, established under s. 240.512, by warrant drawn by the Comptroller upon the State Treasury. These funds are hereby appropriated monthly out of the Cigarette Tax Collection Trust Fund, to be used for the purpose of constructing, furnishing, and equipping a cancer research facility at the University of South Florida adjacent to the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute. In fiscal years 1999-2000 and thereafter with the exception of fiscal year 2008-2009, the appropriation to the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute authorized by this paragraph shall not be less than the amount which would have been paid to the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute for fiscal year 1998-1999 had payments been made for the entire fiscal year rather than for a 6-month period thereof.

(3)  After all distributions hereinabove provided for have been made, the balance of the revenue produced from the tax imposed by this part shall be deposited in the General Revenue Fund.
