10 AN ACT concerning publication of documents in Kansas register; relating

14 Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
15 Section 1. K.S.A. 75-431 is hereby amended to read as follows: 75-
16 431. (a) Each agency shall file materials for publication in the Kansas
17 register by delivering to the office of the secretary of state during normal
18 working hours two certified copies of the document to be filed, except
19 that rules and regulations required to be filed in the office of the secretary
20 of state under the provisions of article 4 of chapter 77 of the Kansas
21 Statutes Annotated shall be filed in triplicate. On receipt of a document
22 required by this act to be published in the register, the secretary of state
23 shall note the day and hour of filing on the certified copies. One certified
24 copy of each filed document shall be maintained in original form
25 microfilm in a permanent register in the office of the secretary of state
26 and, on filing, shall be made available immediately for public inspection
27 during regular business hours by the secretary of state for six months after
28 the publication of the document in the Kansas register.
29 (b) If there is a conflict, the official text of a rule and regulation is
30 the text on file with the secretary of state for six months after publication
31 of the document in the Kansas register , and not the text published in the
32 register or on file with the issuing agency. After such period of six months
33 the official text is the text published in the register.
34 (c) The secretary of state is hereby authorized to adopt rules and
35 regulations necessary to the effective administration of this act. Such rules
36 and regulations may include, but are not limited to, rules prescribing
37 paper size and the format of documents required to be published by this
38 act. The secretary of state may refuse to accept for filing and publication
39 any document that does not substantially conform to the promulgated
40 rules and regulations.
41 (d) Upon otherwise complying with the provisions of this section, the
42 secretary of state may maintain on microfilm the files of information re-
43 quired by this act to be published in the register and, after microfilming,
1 destroy the original copies of all information submitted for publication.
2 Sec. 2. K.S.A. 75-431 is hereby repealed.
3 Sec. 3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
4 publication in the statute book.
