The board shall deposit all amounts paid pursuant to Section 48650 by manufacturers, civil penalties, and fines paid pursuant to this chapter, and all other revenues received pursuant to this chapter into the California Used Oil Recycling Fund, which is hereby created in the State Treasury.

(1) To pay recycling incentives pursuant to Section 48651.

Payment shall be determined by multiplying the total annual amount by the fraction equal to the population of cities and counties that are eligible for payments pursuant to Section 48690, divided by the population of the state. The board shall use the latest population estimates of the state generated by the Demographic Research Unit of the Department of Finance in making the calculations required by this paragraph.

(i) For the purposes set forth in this paragraph, one-half of the amount that remains in the fund after the expenditures are made pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (2) and subdivision (b). The board may utilize additional amounts from the fund, up to, but not exceeding, eleven million dollars ($11,000,000).

(ii) As the board finds is fiscally appropriate, for the purposes set forth in Section 48656. The board shall give priority to the distribution of funding in clause (i) for the purposes of this paragraph.

(C) Pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (d) of Section 48691, it is the intent of this paragraph that at least one million dollars ($1,000,000) be made available specifically for used oil filter collection and recycling programs.

(4) To implement Section 48660.5, in an amount not to exceed two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) annually.

(5) For expenditures pursuant to Section 48656.

(b) The money in the fund may be expended by the board for the administration of this chapter and by the department for inspections and reports pursuant to Section 48661, only upon appropriation by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.

(2) The money in the fund attributable to a charge increase or adjustment made or authorized in an amendment to subdivision (a) of Section 48650 by the act adding this paragraph shall not be transferred to the Farm and Ranch Solid Waste Cleanup and Abatement Account.

(d) The money in the fund may be expended by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, upon appropriation by the Legislature, pursuant to paragraph (4) of subdivision (a) of, and paragraph (4) of subdivision (b) of, Section 17001.

(e) Appropriations to the board to pay the costs necessary to administer this chapter shall not exceed three million dollars ($3,000,000) annually.
