10             directors; amending K.S.A. 1999 Supp. 9-1114 and repealing the ex-

13       Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
14             Section  1. K.S.A. 1999 Supp. 9-1114 is hereby amended to read as
15       follows: 9-1114. The business of any bank or trust company shall be man-
16       aged and controlled by its board of directors and this shall include the
17       authority to provide for bonus payments, in addition to ordinary compen-
18       sation for any or all of its officers and employees. The board shall consist
19       of not less than five nor more than 25 members who shall be elected by
20       the stockholders at any regular annual meeting which shall be held during
21       the first 120 days of each calendar year on such date of each calendar
22       year as the bank or trust company may specify in its bylaws. If the date
23       specified in the bylaws falls on a legal holiday, the meeting shall be held,
24       and the directors elected, on the next following business day. If for any
25       reason the election of directors is not made on the day fixed, or in the
26       event of a legal holiday, on the next business day, an election may be held
27       on any subsequent day within 60 days of the day fixed, to be designated
28       by the board of directors, or, if the directors fail to fix the day, by the
29       shareholders representing 2/3 of the shares. In all cases, at least 10 days'
30       notice of the date for the annual meeting shall have been given by first-
31       class mail to the shareholders. If the number of directors elected is less
32       than 25, the number of directors may be increased so long as the total
33       number does not exceed 25 and when the number is increased the first
34       additional directors may be elected at a special meeting of the stockhold-
35       ers. The directors shall be elected in the manner provided in the general
36       corporation code. Vacancies in the board of directors may be filled in the
37       manner provided in the general corporation code. A majority of the di-
38       rectors shall be residents of this state. Any director of any bank or trust
39       company who shall become indebted to such bank or trust company on
40       any judgment or charged off indebtedness shall forfeit such person's po-
41       sition as director and such vacancy shall be filled as provided by law. 
42       Sec.  2. K.S.A. 1999 Supp. 9-1114 is hereby repealed.


  1        Sec.  3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
  2       publication in the statute book.
