Revenues generated during the last month of the fiscal year which are transferred to the CLEAN fund during the following fiscal year shall be considered revenues transferred during the previous fiscal year for purposes of the allotments made to and appropriations made from the separate accounts in the CLEAN fund for that previous fiscal year. However, upon the request of the director and subject to approval by the treasurer of state, an amount sufficient to cover the foreseeable administrative expenses of the lottery for a period of twenty-one days may be retained from the lottery revenue. Prior to the monthly transfer to the CLEAN fund, the director may direct that lottery revenue shall be deposited in the lottery fund and in interest-bearing accounts designated by the treasurer of state in the financial institutions of this state or invested in the manner provided in section 12B.10.

Money in the CLEAN fund shall be deposited in interest-bearing accounts in financial institutions in this state or invested in the manner provided in section 12B.10. The interest or earnings on the deposits or investments shall be considered part of the CLEAN fund and shall be retained in the fund unless appropriated by the general assembly.
2. The director of management shall not include lottery revenues in the director's fiscal year revenue estimates. Moneys in the CLEAN fund shall not be considered a part of the Iowa economic emergency fund.
