Session 2000
Effective: April 6, 2000

An Act relating to apportioned fleet registration; concerning permanent registration of
utility trailers; amending K.S.A. 8-1,119 and repealing the existing section.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:

      Section  1. K.S.A. 8-1,119 is hereby amended to read as follows: 8-
1,119. The division shall provide for the registration of and the issuance
of license plates for utility trailers for periods of five (5) years, but in
accordance with the provisions of this section. License plates issued under
this section shall be permanent in nature and designed in such a manner
as to remain with the utility trailer for the duration of the life span of the
trailer or until the trailer is deleted from the owner's fleet. Such license
plates shall be distinctive and there shall be no year date thereon. Trailers
registered under the provisions of this section shall be issued a permanent
registration cab card for the duration of the life span of the trailer or until
the trailer is deleted from the owner's fleet. License plates issued under
this section shall not be transferable to any other utility trailer. The di-
vision shall require the payment of all fees imposed pursuant to this act
as though such trailers were registered annually. Every application for
the registration of utility trailers shall be accompanied by a total fee pay-
ment equal to the amount obtained by applying the proportion of such
trailers operated in this state to the total trailers in the fleet, to the fees
which would otherwise be required for total fleet registration in this state
plus the amount of fees required by this act for the issuance of identifi-
cation devices for the vehicles in the fleet. The director shall require every
owner of utility trailers registered pursuant to this act to file an annual
statement each year during the period of registration, providing such in-
formation as the director deems necessary to determine the amount of
fees owed for such year. If, in any year subsequent to the first year of a
registration period, the number of trailers operated within this state in-
creases, the director shall require the owner thereof to register such ad-
ditional trailers for the remainder of the registration period. The director
may at any time cancel the registration of any or all of the vehicles within
a fleet of utility trailers for nonpayment of fees or for failure to file or
provide information required pursuant to this act.

 Sec.  2. K.S.A. 8-1,119 is hereby repealed.
 Sec.  3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
publication in the Kansas register.
