All moneys in the account are continuously appropriated to the State Court Administrator for the purpose of the distributions required by this section. Interest earned by the account shall be credited to the General Fund.
(2) Each month, the State Court Administrator shall transfer to the Legal Aid Account, from amounts collected by the State Court Administrator as fees and charges in the circuit courts, the amounts necessary to make the distributions required by subsection (3) of this section.
(3) Each biennium, the State Court Administrator shall distribute to the Oregon State Bar $11.9 million from the Legal Aid Account. Distributions under this section shall be made by the State Court Administrator in eight quarterly installments of equal amounts, with the first distribution to be made as soon as possible after July 1, 2011. Amounts distributed to the Oregon State Bar under this subsection may be used only for the funding of the Legal Services Program established under ORS 9.572 (Bar to establish Legal Services Program).
