Any funds received from a tribe in reimbursement for those services are hereby continuously appropriated to that department, agency, or subdivision for those purposes. Any disputes concerning the reasonableness of any claim for reimbursement shall be resolved in accordance with the dispute resolution procedures set forth in the Gaming Compact.
