14       Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
15             Section  1. K.S.A. 46-1109 is hereby amended to read as follows: 46-
16       1109. (a) In addition to other additional audits which the legislative post
17       audit committee may direct, such committee may direct the audit of any
18       state agency or agencies when so requested in writing by the governor or
19       any member or committee of the legislature. Any such written request
20       shall specify the desired object of the audit requested and the reasons
21       therefor. In directing the post auditor to make any such requested ad-
22       ditional audit of a state agency or agencies, the legislative post audit com-
23       mittee may modify the object and direct the details of the audit to be
24       performed.
25             (b) In accordance with this subsection, the legislative post audit com-
26       mittee may reimburse travel mileage expense incurred by a member of
27       the legislature to attend a meeting of the legislative post audit committee
28       for the presentation of the report of a performance audit or other audit
29       work that was requested by such member of the legislature and performed
30       at the direction of the legislative post audit committee. The reimbursement
31       for such travel mileage expense shall be for each mile actually traveled by
32       the usual route in going to and returning from the meeting of the legis-
33       lative post audit committee at the rate fixed under K.S.A. 75-3203a, and
34       amendments thereto, and shall be subject to any restrictions or limitations
35       prescribed by rules adopted by the legislative post audit committee. In
36       the case of a performance audit or other audit work that was requested
37       by any standing, special, select or joint committee of the legislature, the
38       legislative post audit committee may reimburse travel mileage expense
39       incurred by not more than two members of such committee and not more
40       than one member of any political party. No travel mileage expense shall
41       be reimbursed under this subsection for attendance at a legislative post
42       audit committee meeting held during the time that the legislature is in
43       session, unless the legislature has adjourned for a period of more than two
44       days.  
45       Sec.  2. K.S.A. 46-1109 is hereby repealed.
46        Sec.  3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
47       publication in the Kansas register.
