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

      Section  1. K.S.A. 8-143b is hereby amended to read as follows: 8-
143b. (a) Except as provided in K.S.A. 8-143k, and amendments thereto,
and subsection (b), the owner of any truck or truck tractor which is duly
registered and licensed in some other state, desiring to operate in intra-
state commerce in this state for a temporary period only, in lieu of pay-
ment of the annual license fee, may register such truck or truck tractor
and obtain either: (1) A seventy-two-hour temporary registration; or (2)
a thirty-day license authorizing operation on the highways of this state for
a period, of not to exceed 30 days from the date of issuance of such
license. The fee for such license: The seventy-two-hour temporary reg-
istration shall be $26 and the fee for the thirty-day license shall be $26
or 1/8 of the annual license fee for such vehicle, whichever sum is the

istration or fee shall be required for a trailer or semitrailer duly registered
in this or another state and propelled by such truck or truck tractor.
Application for such temporary registration or license shall be made to
the division in the manner and form prescribed by the director and shall
be accompanied by the required fee, which shall be deposited by the
director as provided by K.S.A. 8-146, and amendments thereto.

      (b) Whenever any natural catastrophe or disaster, civil riot or disorder
or any other condition exists in this state that requires or necessitates
emergency assistance or aid from persons owning ambulances, rescue
vehicles or utility vehicles which are subject to the provisions of this sec-
tion, such persons shall be exempt from the payment of the fee required
in subsection (a) for any such ambulance, rescue vehicle or utility vehicle
that is operated in this state for the purpose of or in connection with
rendering such emergency assistance or aid.

 Sec.  2. K.S.A. 8-143b is hereby repealed.
