A tobacco settlement fund is created in the office of the treasurer of state. After payment of litigation costs, the state portion of any moneys paid to the state by tobacco companies in settlement of the state's lawsuit for recovery of public expenditures associated with tobacco use shall be deposited in the tobacco settlement fund. Moneys deposited in the fund shall be used only as provided in appropriations from the fund to the department of human services for the medical assistance program and to the Iowa department of public health for programs to reduce smoking by teenage youth. For purposes of this section, "litigation costs" are those costs itemized by the attorney general and submitted to and approved by the general assembly.
