Section A. Chapter 42, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 42.015, to read as follows:
42.015. 1. In order to contribute to the preservation of freedom, there is established in the state treasury a special trust fund, to be known as the "Veterans' Historical Education Trust Fund".

2. The state treasurer shall credit to and deposit in the veterans' historical education trust fund all amounts received by or designated to the fund established pursuant to this section and any other amounts which may be received from grants, gifts, bequests, appropriations, the federal government, or other sources granted or given for this specific purpose.

All earnings resulting from the investment of moneys in the veterans' historical education trust fund shall be credited to the veterans' historical education trust fund.
3. As established by this section, funds appropriated by the general assembly from the veterans' historical education trust fund shall only be used by the commission for purposes authorized pursuant to section 42.014 and shall not be used to supplant any existing program or service.
