12       Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
13             Section  1. K.S.A. 8-129 is hereby amended to read as follows: 8-129.
14       (a) Applications for the registration of a vehicle required to be registered
15       shall be made by the owner, by mail or otherwise, in the office of the
16       county treasurer of:
17             (1) The county in which such owner resides; or
18             (2) the county in which the owner has a bona fide place of business,
19       if such vehicle is garaged in such county for a period exceeding 90 days.
20       Such place of business shall not be an office or facility established or
21       maintained solely for the purpose of obtaining registration.
22             Such applications for registration shall be made upon appropriate forms
23       furnished by the department and every application shall contain the name
24       of the owner, such owner's residence address or bona fide place of busi-
25       ness, a brief description of the vehicle to be registered and such other
26       information as may be required by the department. If the owner is not a
27       resident of or does not have a bona fide place of business in this state,
28       the owner may make application for registration in any county which the
29       department shall designate, except that in the case of members of the
30       armed forces of the United States, the application may be signed by the
31       owner's spouse, parent, eldest brother or sister, in the order named. If
32       the application is made by mail it shall be accompanied by a fee, the
33       county treasurer may require the payment of a fee in the amount of $.50
34       for postage and other expenses incidental to mailing the license plates,
35       which such fee shall be in addition to the registration fee, and the county
36       treasurer shall deposit the sum in the special fund provided by K.S.A. 8-
37       145, and amendments thereto, to be used for the purpose of paying the
38       postage, necessary help and expenses. With reference to every foreign
39       vehicle which has been registered outside of this state, the owner shall
40       exhibit to the department the certificate of title and registration card, or
41       other evidence of such former registration as may be in the applicant's
42       possession or control, or such other evidence as will satisfy the depart-
43       ment that the applicant is the lawful owner or possessor of the vehicle.


  1             (b) The applicant for the registration of a vehicle required to be reg-
  2       istered, upon the filing of the application, shall submit a statement cer-
  3       tifying that such person has a certificate of title for the motor vehicle,
  4       showing the date and identification thereof, or file an application therefor,
  5       as provided in this act. 
  6       Sec.  2. K.S.A. 8-129 is hereby repealed.
  7        Sec.  3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
  8       publication in the statute book.
