  7.  To claim a credit for an eligible artifact donation as set forth in subsection 5 of this section, a qualified donor shall donate an eligible artifact to the board of public buildings.  If the board of public buildings determines that artifact is an eligible artifact, and has determined to accept the artifact, it shall issue a statement of donation to the eligible donor specifying the value placed on the artifact by the board of public buildings, with a copy to the department.  Upon receiving a statement from the board of public buildings, the department shall issue a tax credit certificate equal to thirty percent of the amount of the donation, to the qualified donor as indicated in the statement from the board of public buildings.

  8.  The department shall not authorize more than ten million dollars in tax credits provided under this section in any calendar year.  Donations shall be processed for tax credits on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Donations received in excess of the tax credit cap shall be placed in line for tax credits issued the following year or shall be given the opportunity to complete their donation without the expectation of a tax credit, or shall request to have their donation returned.

  9.  Tax credits issued under the provisions of this section shall not be subject to the payment of any fee required under the provisions of section 620.1900.

  11.  The department may promulgate rules to implement the provisions of this section.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2021, shall be invalid and void.

  12.  Pursuant to section 23.253 of the Missouri sunset act:
