secretary, except that they shall not be located in any of the

legislative chambers, offices, rooms or halls. Office hours shall

be arranged so that emergency or telephone service is available at

succeeding fiscal years. This Fund shall consist of moneys

deposited in the fund pursuant to the provisions of section two-a,

article eight, chapter three of this code as well as interest

earned on investments made from moneys deposited in the fund. Moneys from this fund shall be expended by the director for

enhancement of the governor's mansion subject to the direction of

the secretary of administration and the discretion of the Governor:
