               and cannot rest

                until our work is complete.

               As exhaustion sets in

               Be with us

              to give us strength,

               give us gentleness,

                and give us the ability to carry on

               So when our work here

              is finally complete,

               we may rest with a clean conscience

                and a content heart.

EXPLANATIONS OF VOTE
 Mr. Speaker: When my childhood friend stole snacks and candy from the blind vendor,
I laughed and stood idly by...caving into what was wrong due to peer pressure. Today, I
watch my colleagues in the Kansas Legislature cave into partisan peer pressure and deprive
the ``blind'' (those who are unenumerated in the census due to non-response) and the ``mute''
(the socio-political voiceless and unheard) and virtually steal the unenumerated's right to
be counted.

 When I was a child, I spake as a child and let others guide my actions. But today, as a
man, I'm privileged to speak out against clearly prejudicial socio-political policy. Mr.
Speaker, I proudly vote ``NO'' on SB 351.--David Haley

   Mr. Speaker: One man, one vote is such an important concept that it is imperative we
not jeopardize this concept by allowing sampling of the population to take the place of
actually counting real individuals at their permanent residence. If there is difficulty in
reaching certain individuals, then it behooves legislators to find a way to ensure that every
person is actually counted so sampling is never again see as a solution to undercounting.
Sampling only produces an assumption, not reality. Enumeration is the only way to achieve
reality. I vote yes on SB 351.--Deena Horst

MOTIONS TO CONCUR AND NONCONCUR
 On motion of Rep. Phill Kline, the House concurred in Senate amendments to HB 2548,
An act concerning the secretary of social and rehabilitation services; relating to the transfer
and conveyance of certain real property of the department of social and rehabilitation
services; transfer of the property of the former Winfield state hospital and training center

of certain real property in Wyandotte county; concerning Topeka state hospital; amending
K.S.A. 75-3765 and 76-12a01 and repealing the existing sections; also repealing K.S.A. 76-
185.

described property, to the extent herein specified, shall be and is hereby exempt from all
property or ad valorem taxes levied under the laws of the state of Kansas:

      First. All buildings used exclusively as places of public worship and all buildings used
exclusively by school districts and school district interlocal cooperatives organized under the
laws of this state, with the furniture and books therein contained and used exclusively for
the accommodation of religious meetings or for school district or school district interlocal
cooperative purposes, whichever is applicable, together with the grounds owned thereby if
not leased or otherwise used for the realization of profit, except that: (a) (1) Any school
building, or portion thereof, together with the grounds upon which the building is located,
shall be considered to be used exclusively by the school district for the purposes of this
section when leased by the school district to any political or taxing subdivision of the state,
including a school district interlocal cooperative, or to any association, organization or
nonprofit corporation entitled to tax exemption with respect to such property; and (2) any
school building, together with the grounds upon which the building is located, shall be
considered to be used exclusively by a school district interlocal cooperative for the purposes
of this section when being acquired pursuant to a lease-purchase agreement; and (b) any
building, or portion thereof, used as a place of worship, together with the grounds upon
which the building is located, shall be considered to be used exclusively for the religious
purposes of this section when used as a not-for-profit day care center for children which is
licensed pursuant to K.S.A. 65-501 et seq., and amendments thereto, or when used to house
an area where the congregation of a church society and others may purchase tracts, books
and other items relating to the promulgation of the church society's religious doctrines.

      Second. All real property, and all tangible personal property, actually and regularly used
exclusively for literary, educational, scientific, religious, benevolent or charitable purposes,
including property used exclusively for such purposes by more than one agency or
organization for one or more of such exempt purposes. Except with regard to real property
which is owned by a religious organization, is to be used exclusively for religious purposes
and is not used for a nonexempt purpose prior to its exclusive use for religious purposes
which property shall be deemed to be actually and regularly used exclusively for religious
purposes for the purposes of this paragraph, this exemption shall not apply to such property,
not actually used or occupied for the purposes set forth herein, nor to such property held
or used as an investment even though the income or rentals received therefrom is used
wholly for such literary, educational, scientific, religious, benevolent or charitable purposes.
In the event any such property which has been exempted pursuant to the preceding sentence
is not used for religious purposes prior to its conveyance which results in its use for
nonreligious purposes, there shall be a recoupment of property taxes in an amount equal to
the tax which would have been levied upon such property except for such exemption for all
taxable years for which such exemption was in effect. Such recoupment tax shall become
due and payable in such year as provided by K.S.A. 79-2004, and amendments thereto. A
lien for such taxes shall attach to the real property subject to the same on November 1 in
the year such taxes become due and all such taxes remaining due and unpaid after the date
prescribed for the payment thereof shall be collected in the manner provided by law for
the collection of delinquent taxes. Moneys collected from the recoupment tax hereunder
shall be credited by the county treasurer to the several taxing subdivisions within which
such real property is located in the proportion that the total tangible property tax levies
made in the preceding year for each such taxing subdivision bear to the total of all such
levies made in that year by all such taxing subdivisions. Such moneys shall be credited to
the general fund of the taxing subdivision or if such taxing subdivision is making no property
tax levy for the support of a general fund such moneys may be credited to any other tangible
property tax fund of general application of such subdivision. This exemption shall not be
deemed inapplicable to property which would otherwise be exempt pursuant to this
paragraph because an agency or organization: (a) Is reimbursed for the provision of services
accomplishing the purposes enumerated in this paragraph based upon the ability to pay by
the recipient of such services; or (b) is reimbursed for the actual expense of using such
property for purposes enumerated in this paragraph; or (c) uses such property for a
nonexempt purpose which is minimal in scope and insubstantial in nature if such use is
incidental to the exempt purposes of this paragraph; or (d) charges a reasonable fee for
admission to cultural or educational activities or permits the use of its property for such
activities by a related agency or organization, if any such activity is in furtherance of the
purposes of this paragraph.

      Third. All moneys and credits belonging exclusively to universities, colleges, academies
or other public schools of any kind, or to religious, literary, scientific or benevolent and
charitable institutions or associations, appropriated solely to sustain such institutions or
associations, not exceeding in amount or in income arising therefrom the limit prescribed
by the charter of such institution or association.

      Fourth. The reserve or emergency funds of fraternal benefit societies authorized to do
business under the laws of the state of Kansas.

      Fifth. All buildings of private nonprofit universities or colleges which are owned and
operated by such universities and colleges as student union buildings, presidents' homes

      (d) The state treasurer may select more than one financial organization and investment

      (e) An account owner may withdraw all or part of the balance from an account on sixty-
days notice or such shorter period as may be authorized under rules and regulations
governing the program. Such rules and regulations shall include provisions that will generally
enable the determination as to whether a withdrawal is a nonqualified withdrawal or a
qualified withdrawal. Such rules and regulations may require one or more of the following:

consistent with the requirements of sections 11 to 19, and amendments thereto; and

individual who is a member of the family of the prior designated beneficiary in accordance
with procedures established pursuant to the provisions of sections 11 to 19, and amendments

of the portion of the withdrawal constituting income as determined in accordance with the
principles of section 529 of the federal internal revenue code of 1986, as amended, plus an
amount equal to the amount of interest earned on such portion shall be withheld as a penalty
and paid to the Kansas postsecondary education savings program.

      (h) The penalty prescribed in subsection (g) may be increased if the state treasurer
determines that the amount of such penalty must be increased to constitute a greater than
de minimis penalty for purposes of qualifying the program as a qualified state tuition
program as defined in section 529 of the federal internal revenue code of 1986, as amended.

      (i) If an account owner makes a nonqualified withdrawal and no penalty amount is
withheld pursuant to subsection (g) or the amount withheld was less than the amount
required to be withheld under such subsection for nonqualified withdrawals, the account
owner shall pay the unpaid portion of the penalty to the program at the same time that the
account owner files the earlier of the account owner's state or federal income tax return for
the taxable year of the withdrawal or if such account owner does not file such return, the
due date for such returns but in any event on or before the due date for such return taking
into account any authorized extensions.

behalf of a designated beneficiary in excess of an amount equal to the average amount of
the qualified higher education expenses that would be incurred for five years of study at
institutions of postsecondary education located in the midwest states. Such amount shall be
determined annually by the state treasurer.

      (2) Such rules and regulations shall include requirements that any excess balance with
respect to a designated beneficiary be promptly withdrawn in a nonqualified withdrawal or
transferred to another account.

      (n)  (1) If there is any distribution from an account to any individual or for the benefit
of any individual during a calendar year, such distribution shall be reported to the federal
internal revenue service and the account owner or owners, the designated beneficiary, or
the distributee to the extent required by federal law or regulation.

      (2) Statements shall be provided to each account owner at least once each year within
60 days after the end of the twelve-month period to which they relate. The statement shall
identify the contributions made during a preceding twelve-month period, the total
contributions made to the account through the end of the period, the value of the account
at the end of such period, distributions made during such period and any other information
that the state treasurer shall require to be reported to the account owner.

      (3) Statements and information relating to accounts shall be prepared and filed to the
extent required by federal and state tax law.

      (o)  (1) A local government or organization described in section 501(c) (3) of the federal
internal revenue code of 1986, as amended, may open and become the account owner of
an account to fund scholarships for persons whose identity will be determined upon
disbursement.

      (2) In the case of any account opened pursuant to provision (1) of this subsection, the
requirement set forth in subsection (b) that a designated beneficiary be designated when
an account is opened shall not apply and each individual who receives an interest in such
account as a scholarship shall be treated as a designated beneficiary with respect to such
interest.

      (p) An annual fee may be imposed upon the account owner or owners for the
maintenance of the account.

      (q) An account must be opened before the designated beneficiary attains 25 years of
age and at least two calendar years before a qualified withdrawal can be made. Qualified
withdrawals must be completed by the time the designated beneficiary attains 30 years of
age or within 10 years after the initial qualified withdrawal is made, whichever occurs first.
The state treasurer may adopt rules and regulations providing for exceptions to the foregoing
requirements for such extenuating circumstances as the state treasurer deems necessary and
appropriate.

entered into pursuant to sections 11 to 19, and amendments thereto, shall be construed as
a guarantee by the state of Kansas or any institution of postsecondary education that a
beneficiary will be admitted to the institution of postsecondary education or, upon admission
to any institution of postsecondary education, will be permitted to continue to attend or will
receive a degree from such institution of postsecondary education.

      New Sec.  18. (a) Nothing in sections 11 to 19, and amendments thereto, shall be

unless the designated beneficiary is the account owner;

      (2) guarantee that a designated beneficiary will be admitted to an institution of

construed to create any obligation of the state treasurer, the state or any agency or
instrumentality of the state to guarantee for the benefit of any account owner or designated

      New Sec.  19. (a) The Kansas postsecondary education savings program trust fund is
hereby established in the state treasury. Such savings trust fund shall consist of moneys
deposited by depositors in accordance with this act, moneys acquired from governmental

(a) The Kansas adjusted gross income of an individual means such individual's federal
adjusted gross income for the taxable year, with the modifications specified in this section.

      (b) There shall be added to federal adjusted gross income:

      (i) Interest income less any related expenses directly incurred in the purchase of state
or political subdivision obligations, to the extent that the same is not included in federal
adjusted gross income, on obligations of any state or political subdivision thereof, but to the
extent that interest income on obligations of this state or a political subdivision thereof issued
prior to January 1, 1988, is specifically exempt from income tax under the laws of this state
authorizing the issuance of such obligations, it shall be excluded from computation of Kansas
adjusted gross income whether or not included in federal adjusted gross income. Interest
income on obligations of this state or a political subdivision thereof issued after December
31, 1987, shall be excluded from computation of Kansas adjusted gross income whether or
not included in federal adjusted gross income.

      (ii) Taxes on or measured by income or fees or payments in lieu of income taxes imposed
by this state or any other taxing jurisdiction to the extent deductible in determining federal

thereto, for privilege tax year 1995, and all such years thereafter.

      (iii) The federal net operating loss deduction.

      (iv) Federal income tax refunds received by the taxpayer if the deduction of the taxes
being refunded resulted in a tax benefit for Kansas income tax purposes during a prior
taxable year. Such refunds shall be included in income in the year actually received
regardless of the method of accounting used by the taxpayer. For purposes hereof, a tax
benefit shall be deemed to have resulted if the amount of the tax had been deducted in
determining income subject to a Kansas income tax for a prior year regardless of the rate
of taxation applied in such prior year to the Kansas taxable income, but only that portion of
the refund shall be included as bears the same proportion to the total refund received as
the federal taxes deducted in the year to which such refund is attributable bears to the total
federal income taxes paid for such year. For purposes of the foregoing sentence, federal
taxes shall be considered to have been deducted only to the extent such deduction does not
reduce Kansas taxable income below zero.

      (v) The amount of any depreciation deduction or business expense deduction claimed
on the taxpayer's federal income tax return for any capital expenditure in making any
building or facility accessible to the handicapped, for which expenditure the taxpayer

      (vi) Any amount of designated employee contributions picked up by an employer
pursuant to K.S.A. 12-5005, 20-2603, 74-4919 and 74-4965, and amendments to such
sections.

as the basis for the credit allowed pursuant to K.S.A. 79-32,196, and amendments thereto.

      (viii) The amount of any costs incurred for improvements to a swine facility, claimed
for deduction in determining federal adjusted gross income, to the extent the same is claimed
as the basis for any credit allowed pursuant to K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 79-32,204 and amendments
thereto.

      (ix) The amount of any ad valorem taxes and assessments paid and the amount of any
costs incurred for habitat management or construction and maintenance of improvements
on real property, claimed for deduction in determining federal adjusted gross income, to
the extent the same is claimed as the basis for any credit allowed pursuant to K.S.A. 79-
32,203 and amendments thereto.

      (c) There shall be subtracted from federal adjusted gross income:

      (i) Interest or dividend income on obligations or securities of any authority, commission
or instrumentality of the United States and its possessions less any related expenses directly
incurred in the purchase of such obligations or securities, to the extent included in federal
adjusted gross income but exempt from state income taxes under the laws of the United
States.

      (ii) Any amounts received which are included in federal adjusted gross income but which
are specifically exempt from Kansas income taxation under the laws of the state of Kansas.

      (iii) The portion of any gain or loss from the sale or other disposition of property having
a higher adjusted basis for Kansas income tax purposes than for federal income tax purposes
on the date such property was sold or disposed of in a transaction in which gain or loss was
recognized for purposes of federal income tax that does not exceed such difference in basis,
but if a gain is considered a long-term capital gain for federal income tax purposes, the
modification shall be limited to that portion of such gain which is included in federal adjusted
gross income.

      (iv) The amount necessary to prevent the taxation under this act of any annuity or other
amount of income or gain which was properly included in income or gain and was taxed
under the laws of this state for a taxable year prior to the effective date of this act, as
amended, to the taxpayer, or to a decedent by reason of whose death the taxpayer acquired
the right to receive the income or gain, or to a trust or estate from which the taxpayer
received the income or gain.

      (v) The amount of any refund or credit for overpayment of taxes on or measured by
income or fees or payments in lieu of income taxes imposed by this state, or any taxing
jurisdiction, to the extent included in gross income for federal income tax purposes.

      (vi) Accumulation distributions received by a taxpayer as a beneficiary of a trust to the
extent that the same are included in federal adjusted gross income.

      (vii) Amounts received as annuities under the federal civil service retirement system
from the civil service retirement and disability fund and other amounts received as
retirement benefits in whatever form which were earned for being employed by the federal
government or for service in the armed forces of the United States.

      (viii) Amounts received by retired railroad employees as a supplemental annuity under
the provisions of 45 U.S.C. 228b (a) and 228c (a)(1) et seq.

earned on contributions deposited to an individual development account under K.S.A. 79-
32,117h, and amendments thereto.

      (xiv) For all taxable years commencing after December 31, 1996, that portion of any

      New Sec.  21. (a) Without adoption of a resolution or ordinance so providing, the
governing body of any taxing subdivision shall not approve any appropriation or budget, as
the case requires, which may be funded by revenue produced from property taxes, and
which provides for funding with such revenue in an amount exceeding that of the next

township or incorporated city shall make a tax levy each year for the purpose of paying their
part of the cost of control and eradication thereof as provided in this act and, in the case of
cities and counties, to pay a portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued under the
authority of K.S.A. 12-1774, and amendments thereto, by cities located in the county. Each

cost of work done, or hired to be done, by the board of county commissioners and to pay a
portion of the principal and interest on bonds issued under the authority of K.S.A. 12-1774,
and amendments thereto, by cities located in the county. To pay persons employed by them
to do such work ordered to be done on any property the county shall issue its warrants upon

alleys by the county, township or city in which such lands, roads, streets and alleys are
located, and from funds made available for that purpose; on drainage districts, irrigation
districts, cemetery associations and other political subdivisions of the state, the costs shall
be paid from their respective funds made available for the purpose. If the governing body
of any political subdivision owning or supervising lands infested with noxious weeds within
their jurisdiction fails to control such noxious weeds after 15 days' notice directing any such
body to do so, the board of county commissioners shall proceed to have proper control and
eradication methods used upon such lands, and shall notify the governing body of the
political subdivision by certified mail of the costs of such operations, with a demand for
payment. The governing body of the political subdivision shall pay such costs from its noxious
weed fund, or if no such fund is available, from its general fund or from any other funds
available for such purpose. Copy of the statement, together with proof of notification, shall
at the same time be filed with the county clerk, and if the amount is not paid within 30
days, such clerk shall spread the amount upon the tax roll of the subdivision, and such
amount shall become a lien against the entire territory located within the particular political
subdivision, and shall be collected as other taxes are collected.

      (b) All moneys collected pursuant to this section shall be paid into the county noxious
weed eradication fund. Tax levies made pursuant to this section shall be in addition to all
other levies authorized by law, and shall be in addition to any aggregate tax levy limits
prescribed by law.

subdivision'' means any agency or unit of the state authorized to levy taxes or empowered
to cause taxes to be levied.

commissioners at a price fixed by the board of county commissioners which shall be in an
amount equal to not less than 50% nor more than 75% of the total cost incurred by the
county in purchasing, storing and handling such chemical materials. However, once the tax
levying body of a county, city or township has authorized the maximum a tax levy prescribed
by K.S.A. 2-1318, and amendments thereto of 1.5 mills or more, the board of county
commissioners may collect from the owner of privately owned lands an amount equal to
75% but not more than 100% of the total cost incurred by the county in purchasing, storing
and handling of chemical materials used in the control and eradication of noxious weeds on
such privately owned lands. Whenever official methods of eradication, adopted by the state
board of agriculture, are not followed in applying the chemical materials so purchased, the
board of county commissioners may collect the remaining portion of the total cost thereof.

      Sec.  30. K.S.A. 2-1322 is hereby amended to read as follows: 2-1322. (a) The board of
county commissioners, or the governing body of incorporated cities, cooperating with the
secretary of the state board of agriculture, shall purchase or provide for needed and
necessary equipment and necessary chemical material for the control and eradication of
noxious weeds. The board of county commissioners of any county or the governing body of
any city may use any equipment or materials purchased as provided for in this section, upon
the highways, streets and alleys, for the treatment and eradication of weeds which have not
been declared noxious by legislative action.

      (b) Except as provided in K.S.A. 2-1333 and amendments thereto, the board of county
commissioners shall sell chemical material to the landowners in their jurisdiction at a price
fixed by the board of county commissioners which shall be in an amount equal to not less
than 50% nor more than 75% of the total cost incurred by the county in purchasing, storing
and handling such chemical materials used in the control and eradication of noxious weeds,
and may make such charge for the use of machines or other equipment and operators as
may be deemed by them sufficient to cover the actual cost of operation. However, once the
tax levying body of a county, city or township has authorized the maximum a tax levy
prescribed by K.S.A. 2-1318, and amendments thereto of 1.5 mills or more, the board of
county commissioners may collect from the landowners in their jurisdiction an amount equal
to 75% but not more than 100% of the total cost incurred by the county in purchasing,
storing and handling of chemical materials used in the control and eradication of noxious
weeds.

      (c) Whenever official methods of eradication adopted by the state board of agriculture
are not used in applying the chemical material purchased, the board of county
commissioners may collect the remaining portion of the total cost thereof from the
landowner.

      (d) The board of county commissioners, township boards, and the governing body of
cities shall keep a record showing purchases of material and equipment for control and
eradication of noxious weeds. The board of county commissioners and the governing body
of cities shall also keep a complete itemized record showing sales for cash or charge sales

to any adjoining city or township, with which such sewage district may have contracted for
the disposal of sewage, of the contract price therefor, and for all other expense incident to
the operation and maintenance of such sewage system.

      Whenever a sewage district has made tax levies as authorized by this act and has
accumulated a fund for the operation and maintenance of the sewage system and has

hospital authority: (a) Uses such property for a nonexempt purpose which is minimal in
scope and insubstantial in nature if such use is incidental to the exempt purpose enumerated

corporation, which is exempt from federal income taxation pursuant to section 501(c)(3) of
the internal revenue code of 1986, and amendments thereto, and which is the parent
corporation to the not-for-profit operator of an adult care home, shall not be grounds to

standards for the granting and maintaining of such status. All invoices shall be held by the
contractor for a period of five years and shall be subject to audit by the director of taxation.

shall furnish the number of such certificates to all suppliers from whom such purchases are
made, and such suppliers shall execute invoices covering the same bearing the number of
such certificate. Upon completion of the project the contractor shall furnish to the
government of the United States, its agencies or instrumentalities concerned a sworn

EXPLANATIONS OF VOTE
 Mr. Speaker: I vote NO on SB 45. The refusal to continue the property tax lid will be
what the 1999 Legislature will be remembered for. There are no tax cuts for families, in
this bill, but there will be a property tax increase on their homes.--Ed McKechnie, Doug
Gatewood, Marti Crow, Rocky Nichols, Janice L. Pauls, Douglas Johnston,
Gene O'Brien, Vaughn L. Flora, L. Candy Ruff, Melany Barnes, Andrew Howell

   Mr. Speaker: I vote no on SB 45; another special interest tax bill which ultimately harms
all taxpayers for the benefit of a few. Leaving local property taxpayers unprotected and
without protest ability will haunt this Legislature and its members who voted for this
measure selling out their local taxpayers. I vote no on SB 45.--Doug Spangler

   Mr. Speaker: It is with great reluctance that I vote yes on SB 45. I am greatly dismayed
that the Senate has so readily dismissed the property tax lid proposed by the House. I have
always been supportive of capping property taxes and I remain steadfastly in favor of this
tax lid.

 Unfortunately, the Senate is willing to forgo all tax cuts rather than have this lid. Without
this bill, Kansans will not receive the tax relief they deserve.--Kent Glasscock

   Mr. Speaker: While I agree in many of these tax cuts I do not support the elimination
of the tax lid. Rather than reducing or at least holding property taxes to the current level,
the 1999 Legislature has made other choices. The Legislature needs to aggressively pursue
measures to allow more taxpayer participation in limiting the growth of property taxes and
work diligently to further reduce property taxes. Therefore I vote no on SB 45.--Henry
M. Helgerson, Jr

   Mr. Speaker: I very much support tax relief for our troubled independent oil producers
and assisting farmers struggling to store and transport their harvests. I wish I had been given
a chance to vote on those issues separately from the many troubling provisions contained
in this bill.

 However, I cannot support a bill that will remove the property tax lid on counties and
cities, and I cannot support changing tax policy without providing a method of protest from
those being taxed. I support continuing the tax lid and thus I must vote no on SB 45.--
Bill Reardon, Annie Kuether, Bonnie Sharp

   Mr. Speaker: SB 45 contains badly needed tax relief for the oil industry. The Kansas
Geological Survey has testified that up to 5,000 oilfield jobs are at risk of being lost to
Kansas.

 The Kansas tax code was designed when oil prices exceeded $35 per barrel. Prices now
are less than one half that level and the industry is operated primarily by small independent
businesses.

 SB 45 is critical to maintaining jobs, tax base, and, most importantly, oil exploration and
production in Kansas. Mr. Speaker, I vote yes on SB 45.--Eber Phelps, Tim Tedder

   Mr. Speaker: With much hesitation, I must vote no on SB 45. I very much support tax
relief for our troubled independent oil producers. However, I cannot support a bill that will
remove the property tax lid on counties and cities that has long been the law in Kansas.

 I supported the motion of Rep. Gregory to send the bill back to conference to get the
tax lid reinstated. Unfortunately, the House did not see the wisdom of this effort. I support
continuing the tax lid and thus I must vote no on SB 45.--Jim Garner

   Mr. Speaker: Reluctantly, holding my nose, I vote yea on SB 45. I was hoping this bill
would be sent back to allow the conference committee to include the protest petition. That's
why I supported the motion to send it back.

 However, the bill does include important provisions for taxpayers such as the ``truth in
taxation'' provision which will prohibit local units of government from saying they lowered
mill levies while spending more of the taxpayers money through increased property
valuations. This bill also reestablishes local control, making local elected officials accountable
to the people.

CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORT
 Mr. President and Mr. Speaker: Your committee on conference on Senate
amendments to HB 2101, submits the following report:

      The House accedes to all Senate amendments to the bill, and your committee on
conference further agrees to amend the bill, as printed with Senate Committee
amendments, as follows:

      On page 1, by striking all in lines 15 to 43;

      On page 2, by striking all in lines 1 to 17 and inserting the following:

      ``Section  1. K.S.A. 59-29a01 is hereby amended to read as follows: 59-29a01. The
legislature finds that a small but there exists an extremely dangerous group of sexually violent
predators exist who do not have a mental disease or defect that renders them appropriate
for involuntary treatment pursuant to the treatment act for mentally ill persons defined in
K.S.A. 59-2901 et seq. and amendments thereto, which is intended to provide short-term
treatment to individuals with serious mental disorders and then return them to the
community. In contrast to persons appropriate for civil commitment under K.S.A. 59-2901
et seq. and amendments thereto, sexually violent predators generally have antisocial
personality features which are unamenable to existing mental illness treatment modalities
and those features render them likely to engage in sexually violent behavior. The legislature
further finds that sexually violent predators' likelihood of engaging in repeat acts of predatory
sexual violence is high. The existing involuntary commitment procedure pursuant to the
treatment act for mentally ill persons defined in K.S.A. 59-2901 et seq. and amendments
thereto is inadequate to address the risk these sexually violent predators pose to society.
The legislature further finds that the prognosis for rehabilitating sexually violent predators
in a prison setting is poor, the treatment needs of this population are very long term and
the treatment modalities for this population are very different than the traditional treatment
modalities for people appropriate for commitment under the treatment act for mentally ill
persons defined in K.S.A. 59-2901 et seq. and amendments thereto, therefore a civil
commitment procedure for the long-term care and treatment of the sexually violent predator
is found to be necessary by the legislature abnormality or personality disorder and who are
likely to engage in repeat acts of sexual violence if not treated for their mental abnormality
or personality disorder. Because the existing civil commitment procedures under K.S.A. 59-
2901 et seq. and amendments thereto are inadequate to address the special needs of sexually
violent predators and the risks they present to society, the legislature determines that a
separate involuntary civil commitment process for the potentially long-term control, care
and treatment of sexually violent predators is necessary. The legislature also determines that
because of the nature of the mental abnormalities or personality disorders from which
sexually violent predators suffer, and the dangers they present, it is necessary to house
involuntarily committed sexually violent predators in an environment separate from persons
involuntarily committed under K.S.A. 59-2901 et seq and amendments thereto.

      Sec.  2. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 59-29a02 is hereby amended to read as follows: 59-29a02.

(a) When it appears that a person may meet the criteria of a sexually violent predator as
defined in K.S.A. 59-29a02 and amendments thereto, the agency with jurisdiction shall give
written notice of such to the attorney general and the multidisciplinary team established in
subsection (d), 90 days prior to:

      (1) The anticipated release from total confinement of a person who has been convicted
of a sexually violent offense, except that in the case of persons who are returned to prison
for no more than 90 days as a result of revocation of postrelease supervision, written notice
shall be given as soon as practicable following the person's readmission to prison;

      (2) release of a person who has been charged with a sexually violent offense and who
has been determined to be incompetent to stand trial pursuant to K.S.A. 22-3305 and
amendments thereto;

      (3) release of a person who has been found not guilty by reason of insanity of a sexually

pursuant to K.S.A. 22-3428, and amendments thereto, and the jury who returned the verdict
of not guilty answers in the affirmative to the special question asked pursuant to K.S.A. 22-
3221 and amendments thereto.

      (b) The agency with jurisdiction shall inform the attorney general and the
multidisciplinary team established in subsection (d) of the following:

history; and

      (2) documentation of institutional adjustment and any treatment received.

      (c) The agency with jurisdiction, its employees, officials, members of the
multidisciplinary team established in subsection (d), members of the prosecutor's review
committee appointed as provided in subsection (e) and individuals contracting, appointed
or volunteering to perform services hereunder shall be immune from liability for any good-
faith conduct under this section.

      (d) The secretary of corrections shall establish a multidisciplinary team which may
include individuals from other state agencies to review available records of each person
referred to such team pursuant to subsection (a). The team, within 30 days of receiving
notice, shall assess whether or not the person meets the definition of a sexually violent
predator, as established in K.S.A. 59-29a02 and amendments thereto. The team shall notify
the attorney general of its assessment.

      (e) The attorney general shall appoint a prosecutor's review committee to review the
records of each person referred to the attorney general pursuant to subsection (a). The
prosecutor's review committee shall assist the attorney general in the determination of
whether or not the person meets the definition of a sexually violent predator. The assessment
of the multidisciplinary team shall be made available to the attorney general and the
prosecutor's review committee.

      (f) The provisions of this section are not jurisdictional, and failure to comply with such
provisions in no way prevents the attorney general from proceeding against a person
otherwise subject to the provision of K.S.A. 59-29a01 et seq., and amendments thereto.

      Sec.  4. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 59-29a04 is hereby amended to read as follows: 59-29a04.
(a) When it appears that the person presently confined may be a sexually violent predator
and the prosecutor's review committee appointed as provided in subsection (e) of K.S.A.
59-29a03 and amendments thereto has determined that the person meets the definition of
a sexually violent predator, the attorney general may file a petition, within 75 days of the
date the attorney general received the written notice by the agency of jurisdiction as
provided in subsection (a) of K.S.A. 59-29a03 and amendments thereto, alleging that the
person is a sexually violent predator and stating sufficient facts to support such allegation.

      (b) The provisions of this section are not jurisdictional, and failure to comply with such
provisions in no way prevents the attorney general from proceeding against a person
otherwise subject to the provision of K.S.A. 59-29a01 et seq., and amendments thereto.

      Sec.  5. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 59-29a07 is hereby amended to read as follows: 59-29a07.
(a) The court or jury shall determine whether, beyond a reasonable doubt, the person is a
sexually violent predator. If such determination that the person is a sexually violent predator
is made by a jury, such determination shall be by unanimous verdict of such jury. Such
determination may be appealed. If the court or jury determines that the person is a sexually
violent predator, the person shall be committed to the custody of the secretary of social and
rehabilitation services for control, care and treatment until such time as the person's mental
abnormality or personality disorder has so changed that the person is safe to be at large.
Such control, care and treatment shall be provided at a facility operated by the department
of social and rehabilitation services. At all times, persons committed for control, care and
treatment by the department of social and rehabilitation services pursuant to this act shall
be kept in a secure facility and such persons shall be segregated at all times from any other
patient under the supervision of the secretary of social and rehabilitation services and
commencing June 1, 1995, such persons committed pursuant to this act shall be kept in a
facility or building separate from any other patient under the supervision of the secretary.
The department of social and rehabilitation services is authorized to enter into an
interagency agreement with the department of corrections for the confinement of such
persons. Such persons who are in the confinement of the secretary of corrections pursuant
to an interagency agreement shall be housed and managed separately from offenders in the
custody of the secretary of corrections, and except for occasional instances of supervised
incidental contact, shall be segregated from such offenders. If any person while committed
to the custody of the secretary pursuant to this act shall be taken into custody by any law
enforcement officer as defined in K.S.A. 21-3110 and amendments thereto pursuant to any
parole revocation proceeding or any arrest or conviction for a criminal offense of any nature,
upon the person's release from the custody of any law enforcement officer, the person shall
be returned to the custody of the secretary for further treatment pursuant to this act. During
any such period of time a person is not in the actual custody or supervision of the secretary,
the secretary shall be excused from the provisions of K.S.A. 59-29a08 and amendments
thereto, with regard to providing that person an annual examination, annual notice and
annual report to the court, except that the secretary shall give notice to the court as soon as
reasonably possible after the taking of the person into custody that the person is no longer
in treatment pursuant to this act, and notice to the court when the person is returned to the
custody of the secretary for further treatment. If the court or jury is not satisfied beyond a
reasonable doubt that the person is a sexually violent predator, the court shall direct the
person's release. Upon a mistrial, the court shall direct that the person be held at an
appropriate secure facility, including, but not limited to, a county jail, until another trial is
conducted. Any subsequent trial following a mistrial shall be held within 90 days of the
previous trial, unless such subsequent trial is continued as provided in K.S.A. 59-29a06 and
amendments thereto.

      (b) If the person charged with a sexually violent offense has been found incompetent
to stand trial, and is about to be released pursuant to K.S.A. 22-3305 and amendments
thereto, and such person's commitment is sought pursuant to subsection (a), the court shall
first hear evidence and determine whether the person did commit the act or acts charged.
The hearing on this issue must comply with all the procedures specified in this section. In
addition, the rules of evidence applicable in criminal cases shall apply, and all constitutional
rights available to defendants at criminal trials, other than the right not to be tried while
incompetent, shall apply. After hearing evidence on this issue, the court shall make specific
findings on whether the person did commit the act or acts charged, the extent to which the
person's incompetence or developmental disability affected the outcome of the hearing,
including its effect on the person's ability to consult with and assist counsel and to testify
on such person's own behalf, the extent to which the evidence could be reconstructed
without the assistance of the person and the strength of the prosecution's case. If after the
conclusion of the hearing on this issue, the court finds, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the
person did commit the act or acts charged, the court shall enter a final order, appealable
by the person, on that issue, and may proceed to consider whether the person should be
committed pursuant to this section.

      Sec.  6. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 59-29a18 is hereby amended to read as follows: 59-29a18.
(a) During any period the person is in transitional release, the person committed under this
act at least annually, and at any other time deemed appropriate by the treatment staff, shall
be examined by the treatment staff to determine if the person's mental abnormality or
personality disorder has so changed so as to warrant such person being considered for
conditional release. The treatment staff shall forward a report of its examination to the court.
The court shall review the same. If the court determines that probable cause exists to believe
that the person's mental abnormality or personality disorder has so changed that the person
is safe to be placed in conditional release, the court shall then set a hearing on the issue.
The attorney general shall have the burden of proof by a to show beyond a reasonable doubt
standard that the person's mental abnormality or personality disorder remains such that the
person is not safe to be at large and that if placed on conditional release is likely to engage
in repeat acts of sexual violence. The person shall have the same rights as enumerated in
K.S.A. 59-29a06 and amendments thereto. Subsequent to either a court review or a hearing,
the court shall issue an appropriate order with findings of fact. The order of the court shall
be provided to the attorney general, the person and the secretary.

      (b) If, after the hearing, the court is convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the
person is not appropriate for conditional release, the court shall order that the person be
placed on conditional release. Otherwise, the court shall order that the person remain either
in secure commitment or in transitional release. Otherwise, the court shall order that the
person be placed on conditional release.

      Sec.  7. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 59-29a19 is hereby amended to read as follows: 59-29a19.
(a) If the court determines that the person should be placed on conditional release, the
court, based upon the recommendation of the treatment staff, shall establish a plan of
treatment which the person shall be ordered to follow. This plan of treatment may include,
but shall not be limited to: Provisions as to where the person shall reside and with whom,
taking prescribed medications, attending individual and group counseling, maintaining
employment, having no contact with children, not frequenting facilities, locations, events or
otherwise in which children are likely to be present and not engaging in activities in which
contact with children is likely. Upon a showing by the person that the person accepts the
plan of treatment and is prepared to follow it, the court shall release the person from the
transitional release program.

      (b) After a minimum of five years have passed in which the person has been free of
violations of conditions of such person's treatment plan, the treatment staff, or other
professionals directed by the court may examine such person to determine if the person's
mental abnormality or personality disorder has changed so as to warrant such person being
considered for final discharge. The person preparing the report shall forward the report to
the court. The court shall review the same. If the court determines that probable cause
exists to believe that the person's mental abnormality or personality disorder has so changed
that the person is safe to be entitled to final discharge, the court shall set a formal hearing
on the issue. The attorney general shall have the burden of proof by a to show beyond a
reasonable doubt standard that the person's mental abnormality or personality disorder
remains such that such person is not appropriate for final discharge. The person shall have
the same rights as enumerated in K.S.A. 59-29a06 and amendments thereto. Subsequent to
either a court review or a hearing, the court shall issue an appropriate order with findings
of fact. The order of the court shall be provided to the attorney general, the person and the
secretary.

      (c) If, after a hearing, the court is convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the person
is not appropriate for final discharge, the court shall order the person finally discharged.
Otherwise, the court shall continue custody of the person with the secretary for placement
in a secure facility, transitional release program or conditional release program. Otherwise,
the court shall order the person finally discharged. In the event the court does not order
final discharge of the person, the person still retains the right to annual reviews.

      (d) At any time during which the person is on conditional release and the professional
person designated by the court in the treatment plan to monitor the person's compliance
with it determines that the person has violated any material condition of that plan, that
professional person may request the district court to issue an emergency ex parte order
directing any law enforcement officers to take the person into custody and return the person
to the secure commitment facility. Any such request may be made verbally or by telephone,
but shall be followed in written or facsimile form delivered to the court not later than 5:00
p.m. of the first day the district court is open for the transaction of business after the verbal
or telephonic request was made.

      (e) Upon the person being returned to the secure commitment facility from conditional
release, notice thereof shall be given by the secretary to the court. The court shall set the
matter for a hearing within two working days of receipt of notice of the person's having
been returned to the secure commitment facility and cause notice thereof to be given to
the attorney general, the person and the secretary. The attorney general shall have the
burden of proof to show probable cause that the person violated conditions of conditional
release. The hearing shall be to the court. At the conclusion of the hearing the court shall
issue an order returning the person to the secure commitment facility, to the transitional
release program or to conditional release, and may order such other further conditions with
which the person must comply if the person is returned to either the transitional release
program or to conditional release.

      (f) The final discharge shall not prevent the person from being prosecuted for any
criminal acts which the person is alleged to have committed or from being subject in the
future to a subsequent commitment under this act.

      New Sec.  8. Any person for whom a petition pursuant to this act has been filed and is
in the secure confinement of the state shall not be eligible for bail, bond, house arrest or
any other measures releasing the person from the physical protective custody of the state,
notwithstanding the provisions of K.S.A. 59-29a10 and amendments thereto.

      Sec.  9. K.S.A. 59-29a01 and K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 59-29a02, 59-29a03, 59-29a04, 59-
29a07, 59-29a18 and 59-29a19 are hereby repealed.'';

59-29a19 and repealing the existing sections.'';

REPORT ON ENGROSSED BILLS
HB 2071, 2150 reported correctly re-engrossed May 2, 1999.

READING AND CORRECTION OF THE JOURNAL
 In the Journal, on page 1057, please insert the following explanation after the explanation
of vote by Rocky Nichols and Doug Spangler:

   Mr. Speaker: Yesterday, this body passed a significant bill impacting highway
construction and providing good jobs for the next ten years.

 S. Sub. for HB 2558 will have an even more profound impact on many generations of
Kansas children. This bill represents a smart approach on managing the tobacco settlement
proceeds--a historic step forward in Kansas being a national leader on children's issues.

 Long after each of us has moved on to new chapters in our lives, we can all look back
and know that our work here is still doing good things for the children of Kansas. This bill
is truly the legacy of the 1999 legislature. I vote yes on S. Sub. for HB 2558.--Jim D.
Garner

CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORT
 Mr. President and Mr. Speaker: Your committee on conference on Senate amend-
ments to Substitute for HB 2469, submits the following report:

      The House accedes to all Senate amendments to the bill, and your committee on con-
ference further agrees to amend the bill, as printed with Senate Committee of the Whole
amendments, as follows:

      On page 3, by striking all on line 43;

      By striking all on page 4;

      On page 5, by striking all in lines 1 through 7 and by inserting the following:

      ``Section  1. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4705 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4705.
(a) For the purpose of sentencing, the following sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes
shall be applied in felony cases under the uniform controlled substances act for crimes
committed on or after July 1, 1993:



      (b) The provisions of subsection (a) will apply for the purpose of sentencing violations
of the uniform controlled substances act except as otherwise provided by law. Sentences
expressed in the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes in subsection (a) represent
months of imprisonment.

      (c)  (1) The sentencing court has discretion to sentence at any place within the sen-
tencing range. The sentencing judge shall select the center of the range in the usual case
and reserve the upper and lower limits for aggravating and mitigating factors insufficient to
warrant a departure. The sentencing court shall not distinguish between the controlled
substances cocaine base (9041L000) and cocaine hydrochloride (9041L005) when sentenc-
ing within the sentencing range of the grid block.

      (2) In presumptive imprisonment cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the com-
plete sentence which shall include the prison sentence, the maximum potential reduction
to such sentence as a result of good time and the period of postrelease supervision at the
sentencing hearing. Failure to pronounce the period of postrelease supervision shall not
negate the existence of such period of postrelease supervision.

      (3) In presumptive nonprison cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the prison
sentence as well as the duration of the nonprison sanction at the sentencing hearing.

      (d) Each grid block states the presumptive sentencing range for an offender whose
crime of conviction and criminal history place such offender in that grid block. If an offense
is classified in a grid block below the dispositional line, the presumptive disposition shall be
nonimprisonment. If an offense is classified in a grid block above the dispositional line, the
presumptive disposition shall be imprisonment. If an offense is classified in grid blocks 3-
E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E or 4-F, the court may impose an optional nonprison sentence
upon making the following findings on the record:

      (1) An appropriate treatment program exists which is likely to be more effective than
the presumptive prison term in reducing the risk of offender recidivism; and

      (2) the recommended treatment program is available and the offender can be admitted
to such program within a reasonable period of time; or

      (3) the nonprison sanction will serve community safety interests by promoting offender
reformation.

      Any decision made by the court regarding the imposition of an optional nonprison sen-
tence if the offense is classified in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E or 4-F shall not
be considered a departure and shall not be subject to appeal.

      (e) The sentence for a second or subsequent conviction of K.S.A. 65-4159 and amend-
ments thereto, manufacture of any controlled substance or controlled substance analog shall
be a presumptive term of imprisonment of two times the maximum duration of the pre-
sumptive term of imprisonment. The court may impose an optional reduction in such sen-
tence of not to exceed 50% of the mandatory increase provided by this subsection upon
making a finding on the record that one or more of the mitigating factors as specified in
K.S.A. 21-4716 and amendments thereto justify such a reduction in sentence. Any decision
made by the court regarding the reduction in such sentence shall not be considered a de-
parture and shall not be subject to appeal.'';

      On page 13, in line 14, by striking all after ``(k)''; by striking all in lines 15 through 18
and inserting ``''practitioner`` means a person licensed to practice medicine and surgery,
dentist, podiatrist, veterinarian, optometrist licensed under the optometry laws as a thera-
peutic licensee or diagnostic and therapeutic licensee, or scientific investigator or other
person authorized by law to use a controlled substance in teaching or chemical analysis or

ufacturing site, any'';

      On page 22, in line 5, after ``property'' by inserting ``not destroyed pursuant to subsection
(a)(2) of K.S.A. 60-4117 and amendments thereto'';

      On page 25, after line 15, by inserting the following:

      ``Sec.  23. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 65-4159 is hereby amended to read as follows: 65-4159.
(a) Except as authorized by the uniform controlled substances act, it shall be unlawful for
any person to manufacture any controlled substance or controlled substance analog.

      (b) Any person violating the provisions of this section with respect to the unlawful
manufacturing or attempting to unlawfully manufacture any controlled substance or con-
trolled substance analog, upon conviction, is guilty of:

      (1) A drug severity level 2 felony upon conviction for a first offense;

      (2) a drug severity level 1 felony upon conviction for a second offense or subsequent
offense and the sentence for which shall not be subject to statutory provisions for suspended
sentence, community work service, or probation.

      (c) The provisions of subsection (d) of K.S.A. 21-3301, and amendments thereto, shall
not apply to a violation of attempting to unlawfully manufacture any controlled substance
pursuant to this section.

      (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, upon conviction of any person for vio-
lating subsection (a), such person shall be guilty of a drug severity level 1 felony if such
person is 18 or more years of age and the substances involved were manufactured within
1,000 feet of any school property upon which is located a structure used by a unified school
district or an accredited nonpublic school for student instruction or attendance or extracur-
ricular activities of pupils enrolled in kindergarten or any of the grades one through 12.

      Nothing in this subsection shall be construed as requiring that school be in session or that
classes are actually being held at the time of the offense or that children must be present
within the structure or on the property during the time of any alleged criminal act. If the
structure or property meets the description above, the actual use of that structure or prop-
erty at the time alleged shall not be a defense to the crime charged or the sentence
imposed.'';

      Sec.  13. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4603d is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4603d.
(a) Whenever any person has been found guilty of a crime, the court may adjudge any of
the following:

      (1) Commit the defendant to the custody of the secretary of corrections if the current
crime of conviction is a felony and the sentence presumes imprisonment, or the sentence
imposed is a dispositional departure to imprisonment; or, if confinement is for a misde-
meanor, to jail for the term provided by law;

      (2) impose the fine applicable to the offense;

      (3) release the defendant on probation if the current crime of conviction and criminal
history fall within a presumptive nonprison category or through a departure for substantial
and compelling reasons subject to such conditions as the court may deem appropriate. In
felony cases except for violations of K.S.A. 8-1567 and amendments thereto, the court may
include confinement in a county jail not to exceed 30 days, which need not be served
consecutively, as a condition of probation or community corrections placement;

      (4) assign the defendant to a community correctional services program in presumptive
nonprison cases or through a departure for substantial and compelling reasons subject to
such conditions as the court may deem appropriate, including orders requiring full or partial
restitution;

      (5) assign the defendant to a conservation camp for a period not to exceed six months
as a condition of probation followed by a six-month period of follow-up through adult in-
tensive supervision by a community correctional services program, if the offender success-
fully completes the conservation camp program. If the defendant was classified in grid blocks
3-G, 3-H or 3-I of the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes, the court may impose a
nonprison sanction on the condition that the offender complete the program at the Labette
correctional conservation camp or a conservation camp established by the secretary of cor-
rections pursuant to K.S.A. 75-52,127, and amendments thereto. Such a placement decision
shall not be considered a departure and shall not be subject to appeal;

      (6) assign the defendant to a house arrest program pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4603b and
amendments thereto;

      (7) order the defendant to attend and satisfactorily complete an alcohol or drug edu-
cation or training program as provided by subsection (3) of K.S.A. 21-4502 and amendments
thereto;

      (8) order the defendant to repay the amount of any reward paid by any crime stoppers
chapter, individual, corporation or public entity which materially aided in the apprehension
or conviction of the defendant; repay the amount of any costs and expenses incurred by any
law enforcement agency in the apprehension of the defendant, if one of the current crimes
of conviction of the defendant includes escape, as defined in K.S.A. 21-3809 and amend-
ments thereto or aggravated escape, as defined in K.S.A. 21-3810 and amendments thereto;
or repay the amount of any public funds utilized by a law enforcement agency to purchase
controlled substances from the defendant during the investigation which leads to the de-
fendant's conviction. Such repayment of the amount of any such costs and expenses incurred
by a law enforcement agency or any public funds utilized by a law enforcement agency shall
be deposited and credited to the same fund from which the public funds were credited to
prior to use by the law enforcement agency;

      (9) order the defendant to pay the administrative fee authorized by K.S.A. 1998 Supp.
22-4529 and amendments thereto, unless waived by the court;

      (10) impose any appropriate combination of (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), (8) and (9);
or

      (11) suspend imposition of sentence in misdemeanor cases.

      In addition to or in lieu of any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to pay
restitution, which shall include, but not be limited to, damage or loss caused by the de-
fendant's crime, unless the court finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan
of restitution unworkable. If the court finds a plan of restitution unworkable, the court shall
state on the record in detail the reasons therefor.

      If the court orders restitution, the restitution shall be a judgment against the defendant
which may be collected by the court by garnishment or other execution as on judgments in
civil cases. If, after 60 days from the date restitution is ordered by the court, a defendant is
found to be in noncompliance with the plan established by the court for payment of resti-
tution, and the victim to whom restitution is ordered paid has not initiated proceedings in
accordance with K.S.A. 60-4301 et seq. and amendments thereto, the court shall assign an
agent procured by the attorney general pursuant to K.S.A. 75-719 and amendments thereto
to collect the restitution on behalf of the victim. The administrative judge of each judicial
district may assign such cases to an appropriate division of the court for the conduct of civil
collection proceedings.

      In addition to or in lieu of any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to submit
to and complete an alcohol and drug evaluation, and pay a fee therefor, when required by
subsection (4) of K.S.A. 21-4502 and amendments thereto.

      In addition to any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to reimburse the
county general fund for all or a part of the expenditures by the county to provide counsel
and other defense services to the defendant. Any such reimbursement to the county shall
be paid only after any order for restitution has been paid in full. In determining the amount
and method of payment of such sum, the court shall take account of the financial resources
of the defendant and the nature of the burden that payment of such sum will impose. A
defendant who has been required to pay such sum and who is not willfully in default in the
payment thereof may at any time petition the court which sentenced the defendant to waive
payment of such sum or any unpaid portion thereof. If it appears to the satisfaction of the
court that payment of the amount due will impose manifest hardship on the defendant or
the defendant's immediate family, the court may waive payment of all or part of the amount
due or modify the method of payment.

      In imposing a fine the court may authorize the payment thereof in installments. In re-
leasing a defendant on probation, the court shall direct that the defendant be under the
supervision of a court services officer. If the court commits the defendant to the custody of
the secretary of corrections or to jail, the court may specify in its order the amount of
restitution to be paid and the person to whom it shall be paid if restitution is later ordered
as a condition of parole or conditional release.

      When a new felony is committed while the offender is incarcerated and serving a sentence
for a felony or while the offender is on probation, assignment to a community correctional
services program, parole, conditional release, or postrelease supervision for a felony, a new
sentence shall be imposed pursuant to the consecutive sentencing requirements of K.S.A.
21-4608, and amendments thereto, and the court may sentence the offender to imprison-
ment for the new conviction, even when the new crime of conviction otherwise presumes
a nonprison sentence. In this event, imposition of a prison sentence for the new crime does
not constitute a departure. When a new felony is committed while the offender is on release
for a felony pursuant to the provisions of article 28 of chapter 22 of the Kansas Statutes
Annotated, a new sentence may be imposed pursuant to the consecutive sentencing require-
ments of K.S.A. 21-4608 and amendments thereto, and the court may sentence the offender
to imprisonment for the new conviction, even when the new crime of conviction otherwise
presumes a nonprison sentence. In this event, imposition of a prison sentence for the new
crime does not constitute a departure.

      Prior to imposing a dispositional departure for a defendant whose offense is classified in
the presumptive nonprison grid block of either sentencing guideline grid, prior to sentencing
a defendant to incarceration whose offense is classified in grid blocks 5-H, 5-I or 6-G of the
sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes or in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-
E or 4-F of the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes, or prior to revocation of a
nonprison sanction of a defendant whose offense is classified in the presumptive nonprison
grid block of either sentencing guideline grid or grid blocks 5-H, 5-I or 6-G of the sentencing
guidelines grid for nondrug crimes or in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E or 4-F of
the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes, the court shall consider placement of the
defendant in the Labette correctional conservation camp, conservation camps established
by the secretary of corrections pursuant to K.S.A. 75-52,127, and amendment thereto or a
community intermediate sanction center. Pursuant to this paragraph the defendant shall not
be sentenced to imprisonment if space is available in a conservation camp or a community
intermediate sanction center and the defendant meets all of the conservation camp's or a
community intermediate sanction center's placement criteria unless the court states on the
record the reasons for not placing the defendant in a conservation camp or a community
intermediate sanction center.

      The court in committing a defendant to the custody of the secretary of corrections shall
fix a term of confinement within the limits provided by law. In those cases where the law
does not fix a term of confinement for the crime for which the defendant was convicted,
the court shall fix the term of such confinement.

      In addition to any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to reimburse the state
general fund for all or a part of the expenditures by the state board of indigents' defense
services to provide counsel and other defense services to the defendant. In determining the
amount and method of payment of such sum, the court shall take account of the financial
resources of the defendant and the nature of the burden that payment of such sum will
impose. A defendant who has been required to pay such sum and who is not willfully in
default in the payment thereof may at any time petition the court which sentenced the
defendant to waive payment of such sum or any unpaid portion thereof. If it appears to the
satisfaction of the court that payment of the amount due will impose manifest hardship on
the defendant or the defendant's immediate family, the court may waive payment of all or
part of the amount due or modify the method of payment. The amount of attorney fees to
be included in the court order for reimbursement shall be the amount claimed by appointed
counsel on the payment voucher for indigents' defense services or the amount prescribed
by the board of indigents' defense services reimbursement tables as provided in K.S.A. 22-
4522, and amendments thereto, whichever is less.

      (b) Dispositions which do not involve commitment to the custody of the secretary of
corrections shall not entail the loss by the defendant of any civil rights. Placement of of-
fenders in a conservation camp established by the secretary of corrections pursuant to K.S.A.
75-52,127, and amendments thereto, as a nonimprisonment disposition shall not entail the
loss by the defendant of any civil rights.

      (c) This section shall not deprive the court of any authority conferred by any other
Kansas statute to decree a forfeiture of property, suspend or cancel a license, remove a
person from office, or impose any other civil penalty as a result of conviction of crime.

      (d) An application for or acceptance of probation or assignment to a community cor-
rectional services program shall not constitute an acquiescence in the judgment for purpose
of appeal, and any convicted person may appeal from such conviction, as provided by law,
without regard to whether such person has applied for probation, suspended sentence or
assignment to a community correctional services program.

      (e) The secretary of corrections is authorized to make direct placement to the Labette
correctional conservation camp or a conservation camp established by the secretary pursuant
to K.S.A. 75-52,127, and amendments thereto, of an inmate sentenced to the secretary's
custody if the inmate: (1) Has been sentenced to the secretary for a probation revocation
or, as a departure from the presumptive nonimprisonment grid block of either sentencing
grid, or for an offense which is classified in grid blocks 5-H, 5-I, or 6-G of the sentencing
guidelines grid for nondrug crimes or in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E, or 4-F of
the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes; and (2) otherwise meets admission criteria
of the camp. If the inmate successfully completes the six-month conservation camp program,
the secretary of corrections shall report such completion to the sentencing court and the
county or district attorney. The inmate shall then be assigned by the court to six months of
follow-up supervision conducted by the appropriate community corrections services pro-
gram. The court may also order that supervision continue thereafter for the length of time
authorized by K.S.A. 21-4611 and amendments thereto.

      (f) When it is provided by law that a person shall be sentenced pursuant to K.S.A. 1993
Supp. 21-4628, prior to its repeal, the provisions of this section shall not apply.

      Sec.  14. K.S.A. 21-4605 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4605. (a) (1) Upon
request of the attorney for the state or the counsel for the defendant, The judge shall make
available to the attorney for the state or counsel for the defendant the presentence report,
any report that may be received from the Topeka correctional facility or the state security
hospital and other diagnostic reports and shall allow the attorney or counsel a reasonable
time to review the report before sentencing the defendant. Except as otherwise provided
in this section, all these reports shall be part of the record but shall be sealed and opened
only on order of the court.

      (2) The court shall permit the attorney for the state or the counsel for the defendant,
upon request, to copy and retain any of the reports under subsection (a)(1). Any reports
copied and retained shall be kept in the records of the attorney for the state or the counsel
for the defendant and shall not be disclosed to any unauthorized person without permission
of the court. All costs of copying such reports shall be paid by the office of the attorney for
the state or the counsel for the defendant making the request.

      (b) If a defendant is committed to the custody of the secretary of corrections, all reports
under subsection (a)(1) shall be sent to the secretary of corrections and, in accordance with
K.S.A. 75-5220, and amendments thereto, to the warden of the state correctional institution
to which the defendant is conveyed.

      (c) Nothing in this section shall be construed as prohibiting the attorney for the de-
fendant from disclosing the report of the presentence investigation, or other diagnostic
reports, to the defendant after receiving court approval to do so.

      (d) Notwithstanding subsections (a), (b) and (c), the presentence report, any report that
may be received from the Topeka correctional facility or the state security hospital and other
diagnostic reports, shall be made available upon request to the Kansas sentencing commis-
sion for the purpose of data collection and evaluation. The presentence report shall become
part of the court record and shall be accessible to the public, except that the official version,
the defendant's version, the victim's statement, any psychological reports and any drug and
alcohol reports shall be accessible only to the attorney for the state and the counsel for the
defendant, the sentencing judge, the department of corrections and if requested, the Kansas
sentencing commission. If the offender is committed to the custody of the secretary of cor-
rections, the report shall be sent to the secretary and, in accordance with K.S.A. 75-5220
and amendments thereto, to the warden of the state correctional institution to which the
defendant is conveyed.

      (e) (c) For felony crimes committed on or after July 1, 1993, the provisions of this section
are not applicable to the presentence investigation report.

      Sec.  15. K.S.A. 21-4635 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4635. (a) Except as
provided in K.S.A. 21-4634 and amendments thereto, if a defendant is convicted of the crime
of capital murder and a sentence of death is not imposed, or if a defendant is convicted of
murder in the first degree based upon the finding of premeditated murder, the court shall
determine whether the defendant shall be required to serve a mandatory term of impris-
onment of 40 years or for crimes committed on and after July 1, 1999, a mandatory term
of imprisonment of 50 years or sentenced as otherwise provided by law.

      (b) In order to make such determination, the court may be presented evidence con-
cerning any matter that the court deems relevant to the question of sentence and shall
include matters relating to any of the aggravating circumstances enumerated in K.S.A. 21-
4636 and amendments thereto and any mitigating circumstances. Any such evidence which
the court deems to have probative value may be received regardless of its admissibility under
the rules of evidence, provided that the defendant is accorded a fair opportunity to rebut
any hearsay statements. Only such evidence of aggravating circumstances as the state has
made known to the defendant prior to the sentencing shall be admissible and no evidence
secured in violation of the constitution of the United States or of the state of Kansas shall
be admissible. No testimony by the defendant at the time of sentencing shall be admissible
against the defendant at any subsequent criminal proceeding. At the conclusion of the ev-
identiary presentation, the court shall allow the parties a reasonable period of time in which
to present oral argument.

      (c) If the court finds that one or more of the aggravating circumstances enumerated in
K.S.A. 21-4636 and amendments thereto exist and, further, that the existence of such ag-
gravating circumstances is not outweighed by any mitigating circumstances which are found
to exist, the defendant shall be sentenced pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4638 and amendments
thereto; otherwise, the defendant shall be sentenced as provided by law. The court shall
designate, in writing, the statutory aggravating circumstances which it found. The court may
make the findings required by this subsection for the purpose of determining whether to
sentence a defendant pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4638 and amendments thereto notwithstanding
contrary findings made by the jury or court pursuant to subsection (e) of K.S.A. 21-4624
and amendments thereto for the purpose of determining whether to sentence such defend-
ant to death.

      Sec.  16. K.S.A. 21-4638 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4638. When it is
provided by law that a person shall be sentenced pursuant to this section, such person shall
be sentenced to imprisonment for life and shall not be eligible for probation or suspension,
modification or reduction of sentence. Except as otherwise provided, in addition, a person
sentenced pursuant to this section shall not be eligible for parole prior to serving 40 years'
imprisonment, and such 40 years' imprisonment shall not be reduced by the application of
good time credits. For crimes committed on and after July 1, 1999, a person sentenced
pursuant to this section shall not be eligible for parole prior to serving 50 years' imprison-
ment, and such 50 years' imprisonment shall not be reduced by the application of good time
credits. Upon sentencing a defendant pursuant to this section, the court shall commit the
defendant to the custody of the secretary of corrections and the court shall state in the
sentencing order of the judgment form or journal entry, whichever is delivered with the
defendant to the correctional institution, that the defendant has been sentenced pursuant
to K.S.A. 21-4638 and amendments thereto.

      Sec.  17. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4704 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4704. (a)
For purposes of sentencing, the following sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes
shall be applied in felony cases for crimes committed on or after July 1, 1993:





      (b) The provisions of this section shall be applicable to the sentencing guidelines grid
for nondrug crimes. Sentences expressed in such grid represent months of imprisonment.

      (c) The sentencing guidelines grid is a two-dimensional crime severity and criminal
history classification tool. The grid's vertical axis is the crime severity scale which classifies
current crimes of conviction. The grid's horizontal axis is the criminal history scale which
classifies criminal histories.

      (d) The sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes as provided in this section defines
presumptive punishments for felony convictions, subject to judicial discretion to deviate for
substantial and compelling reasons and impose a different sentence in recognition of aggra-
vating and mitigating factors as provided in this act. The appropriate punishment for a felony
conviction should depend on the severity of the crime of conviction when compared to all
other crimes and the offender's criminal history.

      (e)  (1) The sentencing court has discretion to sentence at any place within the sen-
tencing range. The sentencing judge shall select the center of the range in the usual case
and reserve the upper and lower limits for aggravating and mitigating factors insufficient to
warrant a departure.

      (2) In presumptive imprisonment cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the com-
plete sentence which shall include the prison sentence, the maximum potential reduction
to such sentence as a result of good time and the period of postrelease supervision at the
sentencing hearing. Failure to pronounce the period of postrelease supervision shall not
negate the existence of such period of postrelease supervision.

      (3) In presumptive nonprison cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the prison
sentence as well as the duration of the nonprison sanction at the sentencing hearing.

      (f) Each grid block states the presumptive sentencing range for an offender whose crime
of conviction and criminal history place such offender in that grid block. If an offense is
classified in a grid block below the dispositional line, the presumptive disposition shall be
nonimprisonment. If an offense is classified in a grid block above the dispositional line, the
presumptive disposition shall be imprisonment. If an offense is classified in grid blocks 5-
H, 5-I or 6-G, the court may impose an optional nonprison sentence upon making the
following findings on the record:

      (1) An appropriate treatment program exists which is likely to be more effective than
the presumptive prison term in reducing the risk of offender recidivism; and

      (2) the recommended treatment program is available and the offender can be admitted
to such program within a reasonable period of time; or

      (3) the nonprison sanction will serve community safety interests by promoting offender
reformation.

      Any decision made by the court regarding the imposition of an optional nonprison sen-
tence if the offense is classified in grid blocks 5-H, 5-I or 6-G shall not be considered a
departure and shall not be subject to appeal.

      (g) The sentence for the violation of K.S.A. 21-3411, aggravated assault against a law
enforcement officer or K.S.A. 21-3415, aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer
and amendments thereto which places the defendant's sentence in grid block 6-H or 6-I
shall be presumed imprisonment. The court may impose an optional nonprison sentence
upon making a finding on the record that the nonprison sanction will serve community
safety interests by promoting offender reformation. Any decision made by the court regard-
ing the imposition of the optional nonprison sentence, if the offense is classified in grid
block 6-H or 6-I, shall not be considered departure and shall not be subject to appeal.

      (h) When a firearm is used to commit any person felony, the offender's sentence shall
be presumed imprisonment. The court may impose an optional nonprison sentence upon
making a finding on the record that the nonprison sanction will serve community safety
interests by promoting offender reformation. Any decision made by the court regarding the
imposition of the optional nonprison sentence shall not be considered a departure and shall
not be subject to appeal.

      (i) The sentence for the violation of the felony provision of K.S.A. 8-1567 and subsection
(b) of K.S.A. 21-3705, (c)(3) of K.S.A. 21-3412 and amendments thereto shall be as provided
by the specific mandatory sentencing requirements of that section and shall not be subject
to the provisions of this section or K.S.A. 21-4707 and amendments thereto. Notwithstanding
the provisions of any other section, the term of imprisonment imposed for the violation of
the felony provision of K.S.A. 8-1567 and subsection (b) of K.S.A. 21-3705, (c)(3) of K.S.A.
21-3412 and amendments thereto shall not be served in a state facility in the custody of the
secretary of corrections.

      (j) The sentence for any persistent sex offender whose current convicted crime carries
a presumptive term of imprisonment shall be double the maximum duration of the pre-
sumptive imprisonment term. The sentence for any persistent sex offender whose current
conviction carries a presumptive nonprison term shall be presumed imprisonment and shall
be double the maximum duration of the presumptive imprisonment term. Except as oth-
erwise provided in this subsection, as used in this subsection, ``persistent sex offender'' means
a person who: (1) Has been convicted in this state of a sexually violent crime, as defined in
K.S.A. 22-3717 and amendments thereto; and (2) at the time of the conviction under sub-
section (1) has at least one conviction for a sexually violent crime, as defined in K.S.A. 22-
3717 and amendments thereto in this state or comparable felony under the laws of another
state, the federal government or a foreign government. The provisions of this subsection
shall not apply to any person whose current convicted crime is a severity level 1 or 2 felony.

      (k) If it is shown at sentencing that the offender committed any felony violation for the
benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with any criminal street gang, with the specific
intent to promote, further or assist in any criminal conduct by gang members, the offender's
sentence shall be presumed imprisonment. Any decision made by the court regarding the
imposition of the optional nonprison sentence shall not be considered a departure and shall
not be subject to appeal. As used in this subsection, ``criminal street gang'' means any
organization, association or group of three or more persons, whether formal or informal,
having as one of its primary activities the commission of one or more person felonies or
felony violations of the uniform controlled substances act, K.S.A. 65-4101 et seq., and
amendments thereto, which has a common name or common identifying sign or symbol,
whose members, individually or collectively engage in or have engaged in the commission,
attempted commission, conspiracy to commit or solicitation of two or more person felonies
or felony violations of the uniform controlled substances act, K.S.A. 65-4101 et seq., and
amendments thereto, or any substantially similar offense from another jurisdiction.

      (l) The sentence for a violation of subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-3715 and amendments
thereto when such person being sentenced has a prior conviction for a violation of subsection
(a) or (b) of K.S.A. 21-3715 or 21-3716 and amendments thereto shall be presumed
imprisonment.

      Sec.  18. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4706 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4706. (a)
For crimes committed on or after July 1, 1993, the sentences of imprisonment shall rep-
resent the time a person shall actually serve, subject to a reduction of up to 15% of the
primary sentence for good time as authorized by law.

      (b) The sentencing court shall pronounce sentence in all felony cases.

      (c) Violations of K.S.A. 21-3401, subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-3402, 21-3439 and 21-3801
and amendments thereto are off-grid crimes for the purpose of sentencing. Except as oth-
erwise provided by K.S.A. 21-4622 through 21-4627, and 21-4629 through 21-4631, and
amendments thereto, the sentence shall be imprisonment for life.

      Sec.  19. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4711 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4711. In
addition to the provisions of K.S.A. 21-4710 and amendments thereto, the following shall
apply in determining an offender's criminal history classification as contained in the pre-
sumptive sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes and the presumptive sentencing
guidelines grid for drug crimes:

      (a) Every three prior adult convictions or juvenile adjudications of class A and class B
person misdemeanors in the offender's criminal history, or any combination thereof, shall
be rated as one adult conviction or one juvenile adjudication of a person felony for criminal
history purposes. Every three prior adult convictions or juvenile adjudications of assault as
defined in K.S.A. 21-3408 and amendments thereto occurring within a period of commenc-
ing three years prior to the date of conviction for the current crime of conviction shall be
rated as one adult conviction or one juvenile adjudication of a person felony for criminal
history purposes.

      (b) A conviction of subsection (a)(1) of K.S.A. 21-4204 and amendments thereto, crim-
inal possession of firearms by a person who is both addicted to and an unlawful user of a
controlled substance, subsection (a)(4) of K.S.A. 21-4204 and amendments thereto, posses-
sion of a firearm on school grounds or K.S.A. 21-4218 and amendments thereto, possession
of a firearm on the grounds or in the state capitol building, will be scored as a select class
B nonperson misdemeanor conviction or adjudication and shall not be scored as a person
misdemeanor for criminal history purposes.

      (c)  (1) If the current crime of conviction was committed before July 1, 1996, and is for
subsection (b) of K.S.A. 21-3404, involuntary manslaughter in the commission of K.S.A. 8-
1567 and amendments thereto driving under the influence, then, each prior adult conviction
or juvenile adjudication for K.S.A. 8-1567 and amendments thereto shall count as one person
felony for criminal history purposes.

      (2) If the current crime of conviction was committed on or after July 1, 1996, and is for
involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, each prior
adult conviction, diversion in lieu of criminal prosecution or juvenile adjudication for an act
described in K.S.A. 8-1567 and amendments thereto shall count as one person felony for
criminal history purposes.

      (d) Prior burglary adult convictions and juvenile adjudications will be scored for criminal
history purposes as follows:

      (1) As a prior person felony if the prior conviction or adjudication was classified as a
burglary as described in subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-3715 and amendments thereto.

      (2) As a prior nonperson felony if the prior conviction or adjudication was classified as
a burglary as described in subsection (b) or (c) of K.S.A. 21-3715 and amendments thereto.

      The facts required to classify prior burglary adult convictions and juvenile adjudications
must be established by the state by a preponderance of the evidence.

      (e) Out-of-state convictions and juvenile adjudications will be used in classifying the
offender's criminal history. An out-of-state crime will be classified as either a felony or a
misdemeanor according to the convicting jurisdiction. If a crime is a felony in another state,
it will be counted as a felony in Kansas. The state of Kansas shall classify the crime as person
or nonperson. In designating a crime as person or nonperson comparable offenses shall be
referred to. If the state of Kansas does not have a comparable offense, the out-of-state
conviction shall be classified as a nonperson crime. Convictions or adjudications occurring
within the federal system, other state systems, the District of Columbia, foreign, tribal or
military courts are considered out-of-state convictions or adjudications. The facts required
to classify out-of-state adult convictions and juvenile adjudications must be established by
the state by a preponderance of the evidence.

      (f) Except as provided in subsections (4), (5) and (6) of K.S.A. 21-4705 21-4710 and
amendments thereto, juvenile adjudications will be applied in the same manner as adult
convictions. Out-of-state juvenile adjudications will be treated as juvenile adjudications in
Kansas.

      (g) A prior felony conviction of an attempt, a conspiracy or a solicitation as provided in
K.S.A. 21-3301, 21-3302 or 21-3303 and amendments thereto, to commit a crime shall be
treated as a person or nonperson crime in accordance with the designation assigned to the
underlying crime.

      (h) Drug crimes are designated as nonperson crimes for criminal history scoring.

      Sec.  20. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 22-3717 is hereby amended to read as follows: 22-3717. (a)
Except as otherwise provided by this section, K.S.A. 1993 Supp. 21-4628 prior to its repeal
and K.S.A. 21-4635 through 21-4638 and amendments thereto, an inmate, including an
inmate sentenced pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4618 and amendments thereto, shall be eligible for
parole after serving the entire minimum sentence imposed by the court, less good time
credits.

      (b)  (1) Except as provided by K.S.A. 21-4635 through 21-4638 and amendments
thereto, an inmate sentenced to imprisonment for the crime of capital murder, or an inmate
sentenced for the crime of murder in the first degree based upon a finding of premeditated
murder, committed on or after July 1, 1994, shall be eligible for parole after serving 25 years
of confinement, without deduction of any good time credits.

      (2) Except as provided by subsection (b)(1) or (b)(4), K.S.A. 1993 Supp. 21-4628 prior
to its repeal and K.S.A. 21-4635 through 21-4638, and amendments thereto, an inmate
sentenced to imprisonment for an off-grid offense committed on or after July 1, 1993, but
prior to July 1, 1999, shall be eligible for parole after serving 15 years of confinement,
without deduction of any good time credits and an inmate sentenced to imprisonment for
an off-grid offense committed on or after July 1, 1999, shall be eligible for parole after serving
20 years of confinement without deduction of any good time credits.

      (3) Except as provided by K.S.A. 1993 Supp. 21-4628 prior to its repeal, an inmate
sentenced for a class A felony committed before July 1, 1993, including an inmate sentenced
pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4618 and amendments thereto, shall be eligible for parole after serving
15 years of confinement, without deduction of any good time credits.

      (4) An inmate sentenced to imprisonment for a violation of subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-
3402 and amendments thereto committed on or after July 1, 1996, but prior to July 1, 1999,
shall be eligible for parole after serving 10 years of confinement without deduction of any
good time credits.

      (c) Except as provided in subsection (e), if an inmate is sentenced to imprisonment for
more than one crime and the sentences run consecutively, the inmate shall be eligible for
parole after serving the total of:

      (1) The aggregate minimum sentences, as determined pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4608 and
amendments thereto, less good time credits for those crimes which are not class A felonies;
and

      (2) an additional 15 years, without deduction of good time credits, for each crime which
is a class A felony.

      (d)  (1) Persons sentenced for crimes, other than off-grid crimes, committed on or after
July 1, 1993, will not be eligible for parole, but will be released to a mandatory period of
postrelease supervision upon completion of the prison portion of their sentence as follows:

      (A) Except as provided in subparagraphs (C) and (D), persons sentenced for nondrug
severity level 1 through 6 crimes and drug severity levels 1 through 3 crimes must serve 36
months, plus the amount of good time earned and retained pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4722 and
amendments thereto, on postrelease supervision.

      (B) Except as provided in subparagraphs (C) and (D), persons sentenced for nondrug
severity level 7 through 10 crimes and drug severity level 4 crimes must serve 24 months,
plus the amount of good time earned and retained pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4722 and amend-
ments thereto, on postrelease supervision.

      (C)  (i) The sentencing judge shall impose the postrelease supervision period provided
in subparagraph (d)(1)(A) or (d)(1)(B), unless the judge finds substantial and compelling
reasons to impose a departure based upon a finding that the current crime of conviction
was sexually violent or sexually motivated. In that event, departure may be imposed to extend
the postrelease supervision to a period of up to 60 months.

      (ii) If the sentencing judge departs from the presumptive postrelease supervision period,
the judge shall state on the record at the time of sentencing the substantial and compelling
reasons for the departure. Departures in this section are subject to appeal pursuant to K.S.A.
21-4721 and amendments thereto.

      (iii) In determining whether substantial and compelling reasons exist, the court shall
consider:

      (a) Written briefs or oral arguments submitted by either the defendant or the state;

      (b) any evidence received during the proceeding;

      (c) the presentence report, the victim's impact statement and any psychological evalu-
ation as ordered by the court pursuant to subsection (e) of K.S.A. 21-4714 and amendments
thereto; and

      (d) any other evidence the court finds trustworthy and reliable.

      (iv) The sentencing judge may order that a psychological evaluation be prepared and
the recommended programming be completed by the offender. The department of correc-
tions or the parole board shall ensure that court ordered sex offender treatment be carried
out.

      (v) In carrying out the provisions of subparagraph (d)(1)(C), the court shall refer to
K.S.A. 21-4718 and amendments thereto.

      (vi) Upon petition, the parole board may provide for early discharge from the post-
release supervision period upon completion of court ordered programs and completion of
the presumptive postrelease supervision period, as determined by the crime of conviction,
pursuant to subparagraph (d)(1)(A) or (B). Early discharge from postrelease supervision is
at the discretion of the parole board.

      (vii) Persons convicted of crimes deemed sexually violent or sexually motivated, shall
be registered according to the habitual sex offender registration act, K.S.A. 22-4901 through
22-4910 and amendments thereto.

      (D) The period of postrelease supervision provided in subparagraphs (A) and (B) may
be reduced by up to 12 months based on the offender's compliance with conditions of
supervision and overall performance while on postrelease supervision. The reduction in the
supervision period shall be on an earned basis pursuant to rules and regulations adopted by
the secretary of corrections.

      (E) In cases where sentences for crimes from more than one severity level have been
imposed, the offender shall serve the longest period of postrelease supervision as provided
by this section available for any crime upon which sentence was imposed irrespective of the
severity level of the crime. Supervision periods will not aggregate.

      (2) As used in this section, ''sexually violent crime`` means:

      (A) Rape, K.S.A. 21-3502, and amendments thereto;

      (B) indecent liberties with a child, K.S.A. 21-3503, and amendments thereto;

      (C) aggravated indecent liberties with a child, K.S.A. 21-3504, and amendments thereto;

      (D) criminal sodomy, subsection (a)(2) and (a)(3) of K.S.A. 21-3505 and amendments
thereto;

      (E) aggravated criminal sodomy, K.S.A. 21-3506, and amendments thereto;

      (F) indecent solicitation of a child, K.S.A. 21-3510, and amendments thereto;

      (G) aggravated indecent solicitation of a child, K.S.A. 21-3511, and amendments
thereto;

      (H) sexual exploitation of a child, K.S.A. 21-3516, and amendments thereto;

      (I) aggravated sexual battery, K.S.A. 21-3518, and amendments thereto;

      (J) any conviction for a felony offense in effect at any time prior to the effective date
of this act, that is comparable to a sexually violent crime as defined in subparagraphs (A)
through (I), or any federal or other state conviction for a felony offense that under the laws
of this state would be a sexually violent crime as defined in this section;

      (K) an attempt, conspiracy or criminal solicitation, as defined in K.S.A. 21-3301, 21-
3302, 21-3303, and amendments thereto, of a sexually violent crime as defined in this sec-
tion; or

      (L) any act which at the time of sentencing for the offense has been determined beyond
a reasonable doubt to have been sexually motivated. As used in this subparagraph, ''sexually
motivated`` means that one of the purposes for which the defendant committed the crime
was for the purpose of the defendant's sexual gratification.

      (e) If an inmate is sentenced to imprisonment for a crime committed while on parole
or conditional release, the inmate shall be eligible for parole as provided by subsection (c),
except that the Kansas parole board may postpone the inmate's parole eligibility date by
assessing a penalty not exceeding the period of time which could have been assessed if the
inmate's parole or conditional release had been violated for reasons other than conviction
of a crime.

      (f) If a person is sentenced to prison for a crime committed on or after July 1, 1993,
while on probation, parole, conditional release or in a community corrections program, for
a crime committed prior to July 1, 1993, and the person is not eligible for retroactive
application of the sentencing guidelines and amendments thereto pursuant to K.S.A. 21-
4724 and amendments thereto, the new sentence shall not be aggregated with the old
sentence, but shall begin when the person is paroled or reaches the conditional release date
on the old sentence. If the offender was past the offender's conditional release date at the
time the new offense was committed, the new sentence shall not be aggregated with the
old sentence but shall begin when the person is ordered released by the Kansas parole board
or reaches the maximum sentence expiration date on the old sentence, whichever is earlier.
The new sentence shall then be served as otherwise provided by law. The period of post-
release supervision shall be based on the new sentence, except that those offenders whose
old sentence is a term of imprisonment for life, imposed pursuant to K.S.A. 1993 Supp. 21-
4628 prior to its repeal, or an indeterminate sentence with a maximum term of life impris-
onment, for which there is no conditional release or maximum sentence expiration date,
shall remain on postrelease supervision for life or until discharged from supervision by the
Kansas parole board.

      (g) Subject to the provisions of this section, the Kansas parole board may release on
parole those persons confined in institutions who are eligible for parole when: (1) The board
believes that the inmate should be released for hospitalization, for deportation or to answer
the warrant or other process of a court and is of the opinion that there is reasonable prob-
ability that the inmate can be released without detriment to the community or to the inmate;
or (2) the secretary of corrections has reported to the board in writing that the inmate has
satisfactorily completed the programs required by any agreement entered under K.S.A. 75-
5210a and amendments thereto, or any revision of such agreement, and the board believes
that the inmate is able and willing to fulfill the obligations of a law abiding citizen and is of
the opinion that there is reasonable probability that the inmate can be released without
detriment to the community or to the inmate. Parole shall not be granted as an award of
clemency and shall not be considered a reduction of sentence or a pardon.

      (h) The Kansas parole board shall hold a parole hearing at least the month prior to the
month an inmate will be eligible for parole under subsections (a), (b) and (c). At least the
month preceding the parole hearing, the county or district attorney of the county where the
inmate was convicted shall give written notice of the time and place of the public comment
sessions for the inmate to any victim of the inmate's crime who is alive and whose address
is known to the county or district attorney or, if the victim is deceased, to the victim's family
if the family's address is known to the county or district attorney. Except as otherwise
provided, failure to notify pursuant to this section shall not be a reason to postpone a parole
hearing. In the case of any inmate convicted of a class A felony the secretary of corrections
shall give written notice of the time and place of the public comment session for such inmate
at least one month preceding the public comment session to any victim of such inmate's
crime or the victim's family pursuant to K.S.A. 74-7338 and amendments thereto. If noti-
fication is not given to such victim or such victim's family in the case of any inmate convicted
of a class A felony, the board shall postpone a decision on parole of the inmate to a time at
least 30 days after notification is given as provided in this section. Nothing in this section
shall create a cause of action against the state or an employee of the state acting within the
scope of the employee's employment as a result of the failure to notify pursuant to this
section. If granted parole, the inmate may be released on parole on the date specified by
the board, but not earlier than the date the inmate is eligible for parole under subsections
(a), (b) and (c). At each parole hearing and, if parole is not granted, at such intervals there-
after as it determines appropriate, the Kansas parole board shall consider: (1) Whether the
inmate has satisfactorily completed the programs required by any agreement entered under
K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto, or any revision of such agreement; and (2) all
pertinent information regarding such inmate, including, but not limited to, the circum-
stances of the offense of the inmate; the presentence report; the previous social history and
criminal record of the inmate; the conduct, employment, and attitude of the inmate in
prison; the reports of such physical and mental examinations as have been made; comments
of the victim and the victim's family; comments of the public; official comments; and capacity
of state correctional institutions.

      (i) In those cases involving inmates sentenced for a crime committed after July 1, 1993,
the parole board will review the inmates proposed release plan. The board may schedule a
hearing if they desire. The board may impose any condition they deem necessary to insure
public safety, aid in the reintegration of the inmate into the community, or items not com-
pleted under the agreement entered into under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto.
The board may not advance or delay an inmate's release date. Every inmate while on post-
release supervision shall remain in the legal custody of the secretary of corrections and is
subject to the orders of the secretary.

      (j) Before ordering the parole of any inmate, the Kansas parole board shall have the
inmate appear before either in person or via a video conferencing format and shall interview
the inmate unless impractical because of the inmate's physical or mental condition or ab-
sence from the institution. Every inmate while on parole shall remain in the legal custody
of the secretary of corrections and is subject to the orders of the secretary. Whenever the
Kansas parole board formally considers placing an inmate on parole and no agreement has
been entered into with the inmate under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto, the
board shall notify the inmate in writing of the reasons for not granting parole. If an agree-
ment has been entered under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto and the inmate has
not satisfactorily completed the programs specified in the agreement, or any revision of such
agreement, the board shall notify the inmate in writing of the specific programs the inmate
must satisfactorily complete before parole will be granted. If parole is not granted only
because of a failure to satisfactorily complete such programs, the board shall grant parole
upon the secretary's certification that the inmate has successfully completed such programs.
If an agreement has been entered under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto and the
secretary of corrections has reported to the board in writing that the inmate has satisfactorily
completed the programs required by such agreement, or any revision thereof, the board
shall not require further program participation. However, if the board determines that other
pertinent information regarding the inmate warrants the inmate's not being released on
parole, the board shall state in writing the reasons for not granting the parole. If parole is
denied for an inmate sentenced for a crime other than a class A or class B felony or an off-
grid felony, the board shall hold another parole hearing for the inmate not later than one
year after the denial unless the parole board finds that it is not reasonable to expect that
parole would be granted at a hearing if held in the next three years or during the interim
period of a deferral. In such case, the parole board may defer subsequent parole hearings
for up to three years but any such deferral by the board shall require the board to state the
basis for its findings. If parole is denied for an inmate sentenced for a class A or class B
felony or an off-grid felony, the board shall hold another parole hearing for the inmate not
later than three years after the denial unless the parole board finds that it is not reasonable
to expect that parole would be granted at a hearing if held in the next 10 years or during
the interim period of a deferral. In such case, the parole board may defer subsequent parole
hearings for up to 10 years but any such deferral shall require the board to state the basis
for its findings.

the appropriate level of supervision pursuant to the criteria established by the secretary of
corrections.

proper or necessary, with respect to the conduct of parole hearings, postrelease supervision
reviews, revocation hearings, orders of restitution, reimbursement of expenditures by the
state board of indigents' defense services and other conditions to be imposed upon parolees
or releasees. Whenever an order for parole or postrelease supervision is issued it shall recite
the conditions thereof.

      (m) Whenever the Kansas parole board orders the parole of an inmate or establishes
conditions for an inmate placed on postrelease supervision, the board:

      (1) Unless it finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan of payment
unworkable, shall order as a condition of parole or postrelease supervision that the parolee
or the person on postrelease supervision pay any transportation expenses resulting from
returning the parolee or the person on postrelease supervision to this state to answer criminal
charges or a warrant for a violation of a condition of probation, assignment to a community
correctional services program, parole, conditional release or postrelease supervision;

      (2) to the extent practicable, shall order as a condition of parole or postrelease super-

ously completed such educational equivalent and is capable of doing so;

      (3) may order that the parolee or person on postrelease supervision perform community
or public service work for local governmental agencies, private corporations organized not-
for-profit or charitable or social service organizations performing services for the
community;

      (4) may order the parolee or person on postrelease supervision to pay the administrative
fee imposed pursuant to K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 22-4529 unless the board finds compelling
circumstances which would render payment unworkable; and

      (5) unless it finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan of payment
unworkable, shall order that the parolee or person on postrelease supervision reimburse the
state for all or part of the expenditures by the state board of indigents' defense services to
provide counsel and other defense services to the person. In determining the amount and
method of payment of such sum, the parole board shall take account of the financial re-
sources of the person and the nature of the burden that the payment of such sum will
impose. Such amount shall not exceed the amount claimed by appointed counsel on the
payment voucher for indigents' defense services or the amount prescribed by the board of
indigents' defense services reimbursement tables as provided in K.S.A. 22-4522 and amend-
ments thereto, whichever is less, minus any previous payments for such services.

      (n) If the court which sentenced an inmate specified at the time of sentencing the
amount and the recipient of any restitution ordered as a condition of parole or postrelease
supervision, the Kansas parole board shall order as a condition of parole or postrelease
supervision that the inmate pay restitution in the amount and manner provided in the journal
entry unless the board finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan of resti-
tution unworkable.

      (o) Whenever the Kansas parole board grants the parole of an inmate, the board, within
10 days of the date of the decision to grant parole, shall give written notice of the decision
to the county or district attorney of the county where the inmate was sentenced.

      (p) When an inmate is to be released on postrelease supervision, the secretary, within

amendments thereto or any offense as defined in subsection (d) of K.S.A. 22-4902 and
amendments thereto, if not confined, for a period of 10 years after conviction, or, if confined,
for a period of 10 years after paroled, discharged or released; or (2) upon a second or
subsequent conviction for such person's lifetime.

      (b) Upon the first conviction, liability for registration terminates, if not confined, at the
expiration of 10 years from the date of conviction, or, if confined, at the expiration of 10
years from the date of parole, discharge or release, if the convicted offender does not again
become liable to register as provided by this act during that period.

      (c) On and after July 1, 1999, any person who has been convicted of an aggravated
offense shall be required to register for such person's lifetime. The provisions of this subsec-
tion shall expire on June 30, 2009.

      Sec.  34. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 22-4908 is hereby amended to read as follows: 22-4908. (a)
Any offender registered as provided in this act may apply to the sentencing court for an
order relieving the offender of the duty of registration, except that no offender may apply
as provided in this section for an order relieving the offender of the duty of registration
until such offender has registered for a period of at least 10 years for each conviction for
which an offender must register as provided by this act. The court shall hold a hearing on
the application at which the applicant and any interested persons may present witnesses and
other evidence.

      (b) At such hearing, if the person is a person who is required to register due to a
conviction of a sexually violent crime as defined in K.S.A. 22-4902 and amendments thereto,
the court shall receive and consider a report by a board composed of experts in the field of
the behavior and treatment of sexual offenders. Such board shall be appointed as provided
by rules and regulations promulgated by the attorney general. If, after the hearing involving
such person, the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the sex offender is
rehabilitated and that the sex offender, does not suffer from a mental abnormality or per-
sonality disorder that would make the person likely to engage in a predatory sexually violent
crime, the court shall grant an order relieving the offender of the duty of further registration
under this act. For purposes of this act, ``mental abnormality'' means a congenital or acquired
condition affecting the emotional or volitional capacity which predisposes the person to
commit a sexually violent crime in a degree constituting such person a menace to the health
and safety of others.

      (c) If, after the hearing involving a person who is an offender who was not required to
register due to a conviction of a sexually violent crime as defined in K.S.A. 22-4902 and
amendments thereto, the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the offender
is rehabilitated, the court shall grant an order relieving the offender of the duty of further
registration under this act.

      (d) Any person registered as provided in this act may apply to the sentencing court for
an order relieving such person of the duty of registration for any conviction which has been
set aside. The court shall hold a hearing on the application at which the applicant shall
present evidence verifying that such applicant's conviction was set aside. If the court finds
that the person's conviction was set aside, the court shall grant an order relieving the person
of the duty of further registration under this act for any conviction which has been set aside.
Such court granting such an order shall forward a copy of such order to the sheriff of the
county in which such person has registered and to the Kansas bureau of investigation. Upon
receipt of such copy of the order, such sheriff and the Kansas bureau of investigation shall
remove such person's name from the registry for any conviction which has been set aside.
Nothing contained in this subsection shall relieve any person of the duty to register or any
other duty prescribed under this act for any conviction which has not been set aside.

      (e) Any person required to register as an offender pursuant to the Kansas offender
registration act, K.S.A. 22-4901 et seq., and amendments thereto, who has a second or
subsequent conviction for an offense which requires registration pursuant to such act, and
any person who has been convicted of an aggravated offense, shall not be granted an order
relieving the offender of further registration under this act. The provisions of this subsection
shall expire on June 30, 2009.

      Sec.  35. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 75-5217, as amended by section 1 of 1999 House Bill No.
2137, is hereby amended to read as follows: 75-5217. (a) At any time during release on
parole, conditional release or postrelease supervision, the secretary of corrections may issue
a warrant for the arrest of a released inmate for violation of any of the conditions of release,
or a notice to appear to answer to a charge of violation. Such notice shall be served personally
upon the released inmate. The warrant shall authorize any law enforcement officer to arrest
and deliver the released inmate to a place as provided by subsection (f). Any parole officer
may arrest such released inmate without a warrant, or may deputize any other officer with
power of arrest to do so by giving such officer a written arrest and detain order setting forth
that the released inmate, in the judgment of the parole officer, has violated the conditions
of the inmate's release. The written arrest and detain order delivered with the released
inmate by the arresting officer to the official in charge of the institution or place to which
the released inmate is brought for detention shall be sufficient warrant for detaining the
inmate. After making an arrest the parole officer shall present to the detaining authorities
a similar arrest and detain order and statement of the circumstances of violation. Pending
a hearing, as provided in this section, upon any charge of violation the released inmate shall
remain incarcerated in the institution or place to which the inmate is taken for detention.

      (b) Upon such arrest and detention, the parole officer shall notify the secretary of cor-
rections, or the secretary's designee, within five days and shall submit in writing a report
showing in what manner the released inmate had violated the conditions of release. After
such notification is given to the secretary of corrections, or upon an arrest by warrant as
herein provided, and the finding of probable cause pursuant to procedures established by
the secretary of a violation of the released inmate's conditions of release, the secretary shall
cause the released inmate to be brought before the Kansas parole board, its designee or
designees, for a hearing on the violation charged, under such rules and regulations as the
board may adopt. It is within the discretion of the Kansas parole board whether such hearing
requires the released inmate to appear personally before the board when such inmate's
violation results from a conviction for a new felony or misdemeanor. An offender under
determinant sentencing whose violation does not result from a conviction of a new felony or
misdemeanor may waive the right to a final revocation hearing before the Kansas parole
board under such conditions and terms as may be prescribed by rules and regulations prom-
ulgated by the Kansas parole board. Relevant written statements made under oath shall be
admitted and considered by the Kansas parole board, its designee or designees, along with
other evidence presented at the hearing. If the violation is established to the satisfaction of
the Kansas parole board, the board may continue or revoke the parole or conditional release,
or enter such other order as the board may see fit. Revocations The revocation of release
of inmates who are on a specified period of postrelease supervision shall be for a six-month
period of confinement from the date of the revocation hearing before the board or the
effective date of waiver of such hearing by the offender pursuant to rules and regulations
promulgated by the Kansas parole board, if the violation does not result from a conviction
for a new felony or misdemeanor. Such period of confinement may be reduced by not more
than three months based on the inmate's conduct, work and program participating during
the incarceration period. The reduction in the incarceration period shall be on an earned
basis pursuant to rules and regulations adopted by the secretary of corrections.

      (c) If the violation does result from a conviction for a new felony or misdemeanor, upon
revocation the inmate shall serve the entire remaining balance of the period of postrelease
supervision even if the new conviction did not result in the imposition of a new term of
imprisonment.

      (d) In the event the released inmate reaches conditional release date as provided by
K.S.A. 22-3718 and amendments thereto after a finding of probable cause, pursuant to
procedures established by the secretary of corrections of a violation of the released inmate's
conditions of release, but prior to a hearing before the Kansas parole board, the secretary
of corrections shall be authorized to detain the inmate until the hearing by the Kansas parole
board. The secretary shall then enforce the order issued by the Kansas parole board.

      (e) If the secretary of corrections issues a warrant for the arrest of a released inmate
for violation of any of the conditions of release and the released inmate is subsequently
arrested in the state of Kansas, either pursuant to the warrant issued by the secretary of
corrections or for any other reason, the released inmate's sentence shall not be credited
with the period of time from the date of the issuance of the secretary's warrant to the date
of the released inmate's arrest.

      If a released inmate for whom a warrant has been issued by the secretary of corrections
for violation of the conditions of release is subsequently arrested in another state, and the
released inmate has been authorized as a condition of such inmate's release to reside in or
travel to the state in which the released inmate was arrested, and the released inmate has
not absconded from supervision, the released inmate's sentence shall not be credited with
the period of time from the date of the issuance of the warrant to the date of the released
inmate's arrest. If the released inmate for whom a warrant has been issued by the secretary
of corrections for violation of the conditions of release is subsequently arrested in another
state for reasons other than the secretary's warrant and the released inmate does not have
authorization to be in the other state or if authorized to be in the other state has been
charged by the secretary with having absconded from supervision, the released inmate's
sentence shall not be credited with the period of time from the date of the issuance of the
warrant by the secretary to the date the released inmate is first available to be returned to
the state of Kansas. If the released inmate for whom a warrant has been issued by the
secretary of corrections for violation of a condition of release is subsequently arrested in
another state pursuant only to the secretary's warrant, the released inmate's sentence shall
not be credited with the period of time from the date of the issuance of the secretary's
warrant to the date of the released inmate's arrest, regardless of whether the released in-
mate's presence in the other state was authorized or the released inmate had absconded
from supervision.

      The secretary may issue a warrant for the arrest of a released inmate for violation of any
of the conditions of release and may direct that all reasonable means to serve the warrant
and detain such released inmate be employed including but not limited to notifying the
federal bureau of investigation of such violation and issuance of warrant and requesting from
the federal bureau of investigation any pertinent information it may possess concerning the
whereabouts of the released inmate.

      (f) Law enforcement officers shall execute warrants issued by the secretary of correc-
tions pursuant to subsection (a) or (d), and shall deliver the inmate named in the warrant
to the jail used by the county where the inmate is arrested unless some other place is
designated by the secretary, in the same manner as for the execution of any arrest warrant.

      (g) For the purposes of this section, an inmate or released inmate is an individual under
the supervision of the secretary of corrections, including, but not limited to, an individual
on parole, conditional release, postrelease supervision, probation granted by another state
or an individual supervised under any interstate compact in accordance with the provisions
of the uniform act for out-of-state parolee supervision, K.S.A. 22-4101 et seq. and amend-
ments thereto.

      New Sec.  36. Nothing in the Kansas offender registration act shall create a cause of
action against the state or an employee of the state acting within the scope of the employee's
employment as a result of requiring an offender to register or an offender's failure to register.

      New Sec.  37. (a) Any offender who was required to be registered pursuant to the Kansas
offender registration act K.S.A. 22-4901 et seq. and amendments thereto, prior to July 1,
1999, and who would not have been required to be registered pursuant to the Kansas
offender registration act on and after July 1, 1999, as a result of enactment of this act, shall
be entitled to be relieved of the requirement to be registered. Such offender may apply to
the sentencing court for an order relieving the offender of the duty of registration. The
court shall hold a hearing on the application at which the applicant shall present evidence
verifying that such applicant no longer satisfies the definition of offender pursuant to K.S.A.
22-4902 and amendments thereto. If the court finds that the person no longer satisfies the
definition of offender pursuant to K.S.A. 22-4902 and amendments thereto, the court shall
grant an order relieving the offender's duty to register if the offender no longer fulfills the
definition of offender pursuant to K.S.A. 22-4902 and amendments thereto. Such court
granting such an order shall forward a copy of such order to the sheriff of the county in
which such person has registered and to the Kansas bureau of investigation. Upon receipt
of such copy of the order, such sheriff and the Kansas bureau of investigation shall remove
such person's name from the registry.

      (b) This section shall be part of an supplemental to the Kansas offender registration act.

      New Sec.  38. (a) Unlawful voluntary sexual relations is engaging in voluntary: (1) Sexual
intercourse; (2) sodomy; or (3) lewd fondling or touching with a child who is 14 years of
age but less than 16 years of age and the offender is less than 19 years of age and less than
four years of age older than the child and the child and the offender are the only parties
involved and are members of the opposite sex.

      (b)  (1) Unlawful voluntary sexual relations as provided in subsection (a)(1) is a severity
level 8, person felony.

      (2) Unlawful voluntary sexual relations as provided in subsection (a)(2) is a severity level
9, person felony.

      (3) Unlawful voluntary sexual relations as provided in subsection (a)(3) is a severity level
10, person felony.

EXPLANATIONS OF VOTE
 Mr. Speaker: I vote ``no'' on SB 149. Although SB 149 contains a number of valuable
provisions, it also reduces criminal sentences in several areas. Included are reductions in
sentence for certain sex offenses, auto theft, and other non-drug crimes. I have no interest
in coddling criminals by reducing sentences. Therefore, despite the other, more desirable
features of the bill, I must vote ``no.''--John T. Edmonds

   Mr. Speaker: I voted against the SB 149 conference committee report because I believe
that it wrongly reduces sentences for some very egregious crimes. Among the reductions,
this conference report reduces the length of sentences for level I and II Non Drug Grid
Crimes -- including rape and kidnapping -- by 20 percent.

 It is unfortunate that these sentence reductions, which I cannot support, were in the same
legislation as important tough-on-crime provisions. For example, this conference report
raises the Hard 40 sentence to a Hard 50 sentence. I would have supported this conference
report were it not for the sentence reductions.--Kent Glasscock

transferred to and conferred and imposed upon the Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice
and delinquency prevention.

      (c) The Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention shall be
the successor in every way to the powers, duties and functions of the Kansas youth authority
in which the same were vested prior to the effective date of this act. Every act performed
in the exercise of such powers, duties and functions by or under the authority of the Kansas
advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention shall be deemed to have the
same force and effect as if performed by the Kansas youth authority in which such powers,
duties and functions were vested prior to the effective date of this act.

      (d) Whenever the Kansas youth authority is referred to or designated by a statute,
contract or other document, such reference or designation shall be deemed to apply to the
Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention.

      New Sec.  2. (a) (1) Whenever a person is adjudicated as a juvenile offender, the court
upon motion of the state, shall hold a hearing to consider imposition of a departure sentence.
The motion shall state that a departure is sought and the reasons and factors relied upon.
The hearing shall be scheduled so that the parties have adequate time to prepare and present
arguments regarding the issues of departure sentencing. The victim of a crime or the victim's
family shall be notified of the right to be present at the hearing for the convicted person by
the county or district attorney. The parties may submit written arguments to the court prior
to the date of the hearing and may make oral arguments before the court at the hearing.
The court shall review the victim impact statement, if available. Prior to the hearing, the
court shall transmit to the defendant or the defendant's attorney and the prosecuting attor-
ney copies of the predispositional investigation report.

      (2) At the conclusion of the hearing or within 20 days thereafter, the court shall issue
findings of fact and conclusions of law regarding the issues submitted by the parties, and
shall enter an appropriate order.

      (3) If a factual aspect of a crime is a statutory element of the crime or is used to
determine crime severity, that aspect of the current crime of conviction may be used as an
aggravating factor only if the criminal conduct constituting that aspect of the current crime
of conviction is significantly different from the usual criminal conduct captured by the aspect
of the crime. Subject to this provision, the nonexclusive lists of aggravating factors provided
in subsection (b)(2) of K.S.A. 21-4716, and amendments thereto, and in subsection (a) of
K.S.A. 21-4717, and amendments thereto, may be considered in determining whether sub-
stantial and compelling reasons exist.

      (b) If the court decides to depart on its own volition, without a motion from the state,
the court must notify all parties of its intent and allow reasonable time for either party to
respond if they request. The notice shall state that a departure is intended by the court and
the reasons and factors relied upon.

      (c) In each case in which the court imposes a sentence that deviates from the pre-
sumptive sentence, the court shall make findings of fact as to the reasons for departure
regardless of whether a hearing is requested.

      (d) If the sentencing judge departs from the presumptive sentence, the judge shall state
on the record at the time of sentencing the substantial and compelling reasons for the
departure. When a departure sentence is appropriate, the sentencing judge may depart from
the matrix as provided in this section. When a sentencing judge departs in setting the
duration of a presumptive term of imprisonment:

      (1) The presumptive term of imprisonment set in such departure shall not total more
than double the maximum duration of the presumptive imprisonment term;

      (2) the court shall have no authority to reduce the minimum term of confinement as
defined within the sentencing matrix; and

      (3) the maximum term for commitment of any juvenile offender to a juvenile correc-
tional facility is age 22 years, 6 months.

      (e) A departure sentence may be appealed as provided in K.S.A. 38-1681, and amend-
ments thereto.

      New Sec.  3. (a) A permanent guardian may be appointed after a finding of unfitness
pursuant to K.S.A. 38-1583 and amendments thereto or with the consent and agreement of
the parents.

      (b) Upon appointment of the permanent guardian, the child in need of care proceeding
shall be dismissed.

To the extent possible, when any law enforcement officer takes into custody a child under
the age of 18 years, without a court order, the child shall forthwith be delivered to the
custody of the child's parent or other custodian unless there are reasonable grounds to
believe that such action would not be in the best interests of the child. Except as provided
in subsection (b), if the child is not delivered to the custody of the child's parent or other
custodian, the child shall forthwith be delivered to a facility or person designated by the
secretary or to a court designated shelter facility, court services officer, juvenile intake and
assessment worker, licensed attendant care center or other person. If, after delivery of the
child to a shelter facility, the person in charge of the shelter facility at that time and the law
enforcement officer determine that the child will not remain in the shelter facility, the law
enforcement officer shall deliver the child to a juvenile detention facility or other secure
facility, designated by the court, where the child shall be detained for not more than 24
hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays. It shall be the duty of the law
enforcement officer to furnish to the county or district attorney, without unnecessary delay,
all the information in the possession of the officer pertaining to the child, the child's parents
or other persons interested in or likely to be interested in the child and all other facts and
circumstances which caused the child to be taken into custody.

      (b) When any law enforcement officer takes into custody any child as provided in sub-
section (c) of K.S.A. 38-1527 and amendments thereto, proceedings shall be initiated in
accordance with the provisions of the interstate compact on juveniles, K.S.A. 38-1001 et

ment officer without a court order and is thereafter placed in the custody of a shelter facility,
court services officer, juvenile intake and assessment worker, licensed attendant care center
or other person as authorized by this code, the facility or person shall have physical custody
and provide care and supervision for the child upon written application of the law enforce-
ment officer. The application shall state:

      (1) The name and address of the child, if known;

      (2) the names and addresses of the child's parents or nearest relatives and persons with
whom the child has been residing, if known; and

      (3) the officer's belief that the child is a child in need of care and that there are rea-
sonable grounds to believe that the circumstances or condition of the child is such that,
unless the child is placed in the immediate custody of the shelter facility or other person,
it would be harmful to the child.

      (d) A copy of the application shall be furnished by the facility or person receiving the
child to the county or district attorney without unnecessary delay.

      (e) The shelter facility or other person designated by the court who has custody of the
child pursuant to this section shall discharge the child not later than 48 72 hours following
admission, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, unless a court has entered an
order pertaining to temporary custody or release.

      (f) In absence of a court order to the contrary, the county or district attorney or the
placing law enforcement agency shall have the authority to direct at any time the release of
the child.

      (g) When any law enforcement officer takes into custody any child as provided in sub-
section (d) of K.S.A. 38-1527, and amendments thereto, the child shall forthwith be deliv-
ered to the school in which the child is enrolled, any location designated by the school in
which the child is enrolled to address truancy issues or the child's parent or other custodian.

      Sec.  6. K.S.A. 38-1542 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1542. (a) The court
upon verified application may issue ex parte an order directing that a child be held in
protective custody and, if the child has not been taken into custody, an order directing that
the child be taken into custody. The application shall state:

      (1) The applicant's belief that the child is a child in need of care and is likely to sustain
harm if not immediately afforded protective custody; and

      (2) the specific facts which are relied upon to support the belief.

      (b)  (1) The order of protective custody may be issued only after the court has deter-
mined there is probable cause to believe the allegations in the application are true. The
order shall remain in effect until the temporary custody hearing provided for in K.S.A. 38-
1543 and amendments thereto, unless earlier rescinded by the court.

      (2) Prior to July 1, 1993, No child shall be held in protective custody for more than 72
hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, unless within the 72-hour period a
determination is made as to the necessity for temporary custody in a temporary custody
hearing. Nothing in this subsection (b)(2) shall be construed to mean that the child must
remain in protective custody for 72 hours.

      (3) On and after July 1, 1993, no child shall be held in protective custody for more than
48 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, unless within the 48-hour period
a determination is made as to the necessity for temporary custody in a temporary custody
hearing. Nothing in this subsection (b)(3) shall be construed to mean that the child must
remain in protective custody for 48 hours.

      (c) Whenever the court determines the necessity for an order of protective custody, the
court may place the child in the protective custody of: (1) A parent or other person having
custody of the child and may enter a restraining order pursuant to subsection (d); (2) a
person, other than the parent or other person having custody, who shall not be required to
be licensed under article 5 of chapter 65 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated; (3) a youth
residential facility; or (4) the secretary. When the child is placed in the protective custody
of the secretary, the secretary shall have the discretionary authority to place the child with
a parent or to make other suitable placement for the child. When circumstances require, a
child in protective custody may be placed in a juvenile detention facility or other secure
facility pursuant to an order of protective custody for not to exceed 24 hours, excluding
Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays.

      (d) The order of protective custody shall be served on the child's parents and any other
person having legal custody of the child. The order shall prohibit all parties from removing
the child from the court's jurisdiction without the court's permission.

      (e) If the court issues an order of protective custody, the court may also enter an order
restraining any alleged perpetrator of physical, sexual, mental or emotional abuse of the
child from residing in the child's home; visiting, contacting, harassing or intimidating the
child; or attempting to visit, contact, harass or intimidate the child. Such restraining order
shall be served on any alleged perpetrator to whom the order is directed.

      (f) The court shall not enter an order removing a child from the custody of a parent
pursuant to this section unless the court first finds from evidence presented by the petitioner
that reasonable efforts have been made to prevent or eliminate the need for removal of the
child or that an emergency exists which threatens the safety of the child and requires the
immediate removal of the child. Such findings shall be included in any order entered by
the court.

      Sec.  7. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1543 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1543. (a)
Upon notice and hearing, the court may issue an order directing who shall have temporary
custody and may modify the order during the pendency of the proceedings as will best serve
the child's welfare.

      (b) A hearing hereunder pursuant to this section shall be held within 48 72 hours,
excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, following a child having been taken into
protective custody.

      (c) Whenever it is determined that a temporary custody hearing is required, the court

      (Title) 
          (f) The court may enter an order of temporary custody after determining that: (1) The
child is dangerous to self or to others; (2) the child is not likely to be available within the
jurisdiction of the court for future proceedings; or (3) the health or welfare of the child may

person, other than the parent or other person having custody, who shall not be required to

immediate removal of the child. Such findings shall be included in any order entered by
the court.

At any time after a child has been adjudicated to be a child in need of care and prior to

child's physical, mental and emotional condition; the child's need for assistance; the manner
in which the parent participated in the abuse, neglect or abandonment of the child; any
relevant information from the intake and assessment process; and the evidence received at
the dispositional hearing. In determining when reunification is a viable alternative, the court
shall specifically consider whether the parent has been found by a court to have: (1) Com-
mitted murder in the first degree, K.S.A. 21-3401 and amendments thereto, murder in the
second degree, K.S.A. 21-3402 and amendments thereto, capital murder, K.S.A. 21-3439
and amendments thereto, voluntary manslaughter, K.S.A. 21-3403 and amendments thereto

(2) aided or abetted, attempted, conspired or solicited to commit such murder or voluntary
manslaughter of a child as provided in subsection (c)(1); (3) committed a felony battery that
resulted in bodily injury to the child or another child; (4) subjected the child or another

ments thereto; (5) parental rights of the parent to another child have been terminated
involuntarily; or (6) the child has been in extended out of home placement as defined in
subsection (z) of K.S.A. 38-1502 and amendments thereto. If reintegration is not a viable
alternative, the court shall consider whether a compelling reason has been documented in
the case plan to find neither adoption nor permanent guardianship are in the best interests
of the child, the child is in a stable placement with a relative, or services set out in the case
plan necessary for the safe return of the child have been made available to the parent with
whom reintegration is planned. If reintegration is not a viable alternative and either adoption
or permanent guardianship might be in the best interests of the child, the county or district
attorney or the county or district attorney's designee shall file a motion to terminate parental
rights or permanent guardianship within 30 days and the court shall set a hearing on such
motion within 90 days of the filing of such motion. No such hearing is required when the
parents voluntarily relinquish parental rights or agree to appointment of a permanent
guardian.

      Sec.  9. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1565 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1565. (a)
If a child is placed outside the child's home and no plan is made a part of the record of the
dispositional hearing, a written plan shall be prepared which provides for reintegration of
the child into the child's family or, if reintegration is not a viable alternative, for other
placement of the child. Reintegration may not be a viable alternative when the: (1) Parent
has been found by a court to have committed murder in the first degree, K.S.A. 21-3401
and amendments thereto, murder in the second degree, K.S.A. 21-3402 and amendments
thereto, capital murder, K.S.A. 21-3439 and amendments thereto, voluntary manslaughter,
K.S.A. 21-3403 and amendments thereto or violated a law of another state which prohibits
such murder or manslaughter of a child; (2) parent aided or abetted, attempted, conspired
or solicited to commit such murder or voluntary manslaughter of a child as provided in
subsection (a)(1); (3) parent committed a felony battery that resulted in bodily injury to the
child or another child; (4) parent has subjected the child or another child to aggravated
circumstances as defined in subsection (x) of K.S.A. 38-1502, and amendments thereto; (5)
parental rights of the parent to another child have been terminated involuntarily; or (6) the
child has been in extended out of home placement as defined in subsection (z) of K.S.A.
38-1502 and amendments thereto. If the goal is reintegration into the family, the plan shall
include measurable objectives and time schedules for reintegration. The plan shall be sub-
mitted to the court not later than 30 days after the dispositional order is entered. If the
child is placed in the custody of the secretary, the plan shall be prepared and submitted by
the secretary. If the child is placed in the custody of a facility or person other than the
secretary, the plan shall be prepared and submitted by a court services officer.

      (b) A court services officer or, if the child is in the secretary's custody, the secretary
shall submit to the court, at least every six months, a written report of the progress being
made toward the goals of the plan submitted pursuant to subsection (a). If the child is placed
in foster care, the foster parent or parents shall submit to the court, at least every six months,
a report in regard to the child's adjustment, progress and condition. The department of
social and rehabilitation services shall notify the foster parent or parents of the foster parent's
or parent's duty to submit such report, on a form provided by the department of social and
rehabilitation services, at least two weeks prior to the date when the report is due, and the
name of the judge and the address of the court to which the report is to be submitted. Such
report shall be confidential and shall only be reviewed by the court and the child's guardian
ad litem. The court shall review the progress being made toward the goals of the plan and
the foster parent report and, if the court determines that progress is inadequate or that the
plan is no longer viable, the court shall hold a hearing pursuant to subsection (c). If the
secretary has custody of the child, such hearing shall be held no more than 12 months after
the child is placed outside the child's home and at least every 12 months thereafter. For
children in the custody of the secretary prior to July 1, 1998, within 30 days of receiving a
request from the secretary, a permanency hearing shall be held. If the goal of the plan
submitted pursuant to subsection (a) is reintegration into the family and the court deter-
mines after 12 months from the time such plan is first submitted that progress is inadequate,
the court shall hold a hearing pursuant to subsection (c). Nothing in this subsection shall
be interpreted to prohibit termination of parental rights prior to the expiration of 12 months.

      (c) Whenever a hearing is required under subsection (b), the court shall notify all in-
terested parties and the foster parents, preadoptive parents or relatives providing care for
the child and hold a hearing. Individuals receiving notice pursuant to this subsection shall
not be made a party to the action solely on the basis of this notice and opportunity to be
heard. After providing the interested parties, foster parents, preadoptive parents or relatives
providing care for the child an opportunity to be heard, the court shall determine whether
the child's needs are being adequately met and whether reintegration continues to be a
viable alternative. If the court finds reintegration is no longer a viable alternative, the court
shall consider whether the child is in a stable placement with a relative, services set out in
the case plan necessary for the safe return of the child have been made available to the
parent with whom reintegration is planned or compelling reasons are documented in the
case plan to support a finding that neither adoption nor permanent guardianship are in the
child's best interest. If reintegration is not a viable alternative and either adoption or per-
manent guardianship might be in the best interests of the child, the county or district
attorney or the county or district attorney's designee shall file a motion to terminate parental
rights or for permanent guardianship within 30 days and the court shall set a hearing on
such motion within 90 days of the filing of such motion. When the court finds reintegration
continues to be a viable alternative, the court may rescind any of its prior dispositional
orders and enter any dispositional order authorized by this code or may order that a new
plan for the reintegration be prepared and submitted to the court. No such hearing is
required when the parents voluntarily relinquish parental rights or agree to appointment of
a permanent guardian.

      Sec.  10. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1583 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1583. (a)
When the child has been adjudicated to be a child in need of care, the court may terminate
parental rights when the court finds by clear and convincing evidence that the parent is
unfit by reason of conduct or condition which renders the parent unable to care properly
for a child and the conduct or condition is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.

      (b) In making a determination hereunder the court shall consider, but is not limited to,
the following, if applicable:

      (1) Emotional illness, mental illness, mental deficiency or physical disability of the par-
ent, of such duration or nature as to render the parent unlikely to care for the ongoing
physical, mental and emotional needs of the child;

      (2) conduct toward a child of a physically, emotionally or sexually cruel or abusive
nature;

      (3) excessive use of intoxicating liquors or narcotic or dangerous drugs;

      (4) physical, mental or emotional neglect of the child;

      (5) conviction of a felony and imprisonment;

      (6) unexplained injury or death of another child or stepchild of the parent;

      (7) reasonable efforts by appropriate public or private child caring agencies have been
unable to rehabilitate the family; and

      (8) lack of effort on the part of the parent to adjust the parent's circumstances, conduct
or conditions to meet the needs of the child.

      (c) In addition to the foregoing, when a child is not in the physical custody of a parent,
the court, in proceedings concerning the termination of parental rights, shall also consider,
but is not limited to the following:

      (1) Failure to assure care of the child in the parental home when able to do so;

      (2) failure to maintain regular visitation, contact or communication with the child or
with the custodian of the child;

      (3) failure to carry out a reasonable plan approved by the court directed toward the
integration of the child into the parental home; and

      (4) failure to pay a reasonable portion of the cost of substitute physical care and main-
tenance based on ability to pay.

      In making the above determination, the court may disregard incidental visitations, con-
tacts, communications or contributions.

      (d) The rights of the parents may be terminated as provided in this section if the court
finds that the parents have abandoned the child or the child was left under such circum-
stances that the identity of the parents is unknown and cannot be ascertained, despite
diligent searching, and the parents have not come forward to claim the child within three
months after the child is found.

      (e) The existence of any one of the above standing alone may, but does not necessarily,
establish grounds for termination of parental rights. The determination shall be based on
an evaluation of all factors which are applicable. In considering any of the above factors for
terminating the rights of a parent, the court shall give primary consideration to the physical,
mental or emotional condition and needs of the child. If presented to the court and subject
to the provisions of K.S.A. 60-419, and amendments thereto, the court shall consider as
evidence testimony from a person licensed to practice medicine and surgery, a licensed
psychologist or a licensed social worker expressing an opinion relating to the physical, mental
or emotional condition and needs of the child. The court shall consider any such testimony
only if the licensed professional providing such testimony is subject to cross-examination.

      (f) A termination of parental rights under the Kansas code for care of children shall not
terminate the right of the child to inherit from or through the parent. Upon such termi-
nation, all the rights of birth parents to such child, including their right to inherit from or
through such child, shall cease.

      (g) If, after finding the parent unfit, the court determines a compelling reason why it is
not in the best interests of the child to terminate parental rights or upon agreement of the
parents, the court may award permanent guardianship to an individual providing care for
the child, a relative or other person with whom the child has a close emotional attachment.
Prior to awarding permanent guardianship, the court shall receive and consider an assess-
ment as provided in K.S.A. 59-2132 and amendments thereto of any potential permanent
guardian. Upon appointment of a permanent guardian, the court shall enter an order dis-
charging the child from the court's jurisdiction.

      (h) If a parent is convicted of an offense as provided in subsection (7) of K.S.A. 38-1585
and amendments thereto or is adjudicated a juvenile offender because of an act which if
committed by an adult would be an offense as provided in subsection (7) of K.S.A. 38-1585
and amendments thereto, and if the victim was the other parent of a child, the court may
disregard such convicted or adjudicated parent's opinions or wishes in regard to the place-
ment of such child.

Prior to placing a juvenile offender in the custody of the commissioner and recommending
out-of-home placement, the court shall consider and determine that, where consistent with
the need for protection of the community:

      (1) Reasonable efforts have been made to prevent or eliminate the need for out-of-
home placement or reasonable efforts are not possible due to an emergency threatening the
safety of the juvenile offender or the community; and

      (2) out-of-home placement is in the best interests of the juvenile offender.

      (b) When a juvenile offender has been placed in the custody of the commissioner, the
commissioner shall notify the court in writing of the initial placement of the juvenile offender
as soon as the placement has been accomplished. The court shall have no power to direct
a specific placement by the commissioner, but may make recommendations to the com-
missioner. The commissioner may place the juvenile offender in an institution operated by
the commissioner, a youth residential facility or a community mental health center. If the
court has recommended an out-of-home placement, the commissioner may not return the
juvenile offender to the home from which removed without first notifying the court of the
plan.

      (c) During the time a juvenile offender remains in the custody of the commissioner,
the commissioner shall report to the court at least each six months as to the current living
arrangement and social and mental development of the juvenile offender.

hearing shall be held not more than 18 12 months after the juvenile offender is placed
outside the juvenile offender's home and, if reintegration is a viable alternative, every 12
months thereafter. The court may appoint a guardian ad litem to represent the juvenile
offender at the permanency hearing. Juvenile offenders who have been in extended out of
home placement shall be provided a permanency hearing within 30 days of a request from
the commissioner. If reintegration is not a viable alternative and either adoption or per-
manent guardianship might be in the best interests of the juvenile offender the county or
district attorney shall file a petition alleging the juvenile is a child in need of care and
requesting termination of parental rights or the appointment of a permanent guardian pur-
suant to the Kansas code for care of children. If the juvenile offender is placed in foster
care, the foster parent or parents shall submit to the court, at least every six months, a report
in regard to the juvenile offender's adjustment, progress and condition. The juvenile justice
authority shall notify the foster parent or parents of the foster parents' or parent's duty to
submit such report, on a form provided by the juvenile justice authority, at least two weeks
prior to the date when the report is due, and the name of the judge and the address of the
court to which the report is to be submitted. Such report shall be confidential and shall only

      Sec.  10. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1673 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1673. (a)
When a juvenile offender has satisfactorily completed such offender's term of incarceration
at the juvenile correctional facility to which the juvenile offender was committed or placed,
the person in charge of the juvenile correctional facility shall have authority to release the
juvenile offender under appropriate conditions and for a specified period of time. Prior to
release from a juvenile correctional facility, the commissioner shall consider any recommen-
dations made by the juvenile offender's juvenile community corrections officer.

      (b) At least 15 days prior to releasing a juvenile offender as provided in subsection (a),
the person in charge of the juvenile correctional facility shall notify the committing court
of the date and conditions upon which it is proposed the juvenile offender is to be released.

      (c) Upon receipt of the notice required by subsection (b), the court shall review the
proposed conditions of release and may recommend modifications or additions to the con-
ditions.

      (d) If, during the conditional release, the juvenile offender is not returning to the county
from which committed, the person in charge of the juvenile correctional facility shall also
give notice to the court of the county in which the juvenile offender is to be residing.

      (e) To assure compliance with conditions of release from a juvenile correctional facility,
the commissioner shall have the authority to prescribe the manner in which compliance
with the conditions shall be supervised. When requested by the commissioner, the appro-
priate court may assist in supervising compliance with the conditions of release during the
term of the conditional release. The commissioner may require the parents or guardians of
the juvenile offender to cooperate and participate with the conditions of release.

      (f) The juvenile justice authority shall notify at least 45 days prior to the discharge of
the juvenile offender the county or district attorney of the county where the offender was
adjudicated a juvenile offender of the release of such juvenile offender, if such juvenile
offender's offense would have constituted a class A, B or C felony before July 1, 1993, or
an off-grid felony, a nondrug crime ranked at severity level 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 or a drug crime
ranked at severity level 1, 2 or 3, on or after July 1, 1993, if committed by an adult. The
county or district attorney shall give written notice at least 30 days prior to the release of
the juvenile offender to: (1) Any victim of the juvenile offender's crime who is alive and
whose address is known to the court or, if the victim is deceased, to the victim's family if
the family's address is known to the court; (2) the local law enforcement agency; and (3)
the school district in which the juvenile offender will be residing if the juvenile is still
required to attend a secondary school. Failure to notify pursuant to this section shall not be
a reason to postpone a release. Nothing in this section shall create a cause of action against
the state or county or an employee of the state or county acting within the scope of the
employee's employment as a result of the failure to notify pursuant to this section.

      (g) Conditional release programs shall include, but not be limited to, the treatment
options of aftercare services.

      Sec.  11. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1681 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1681. (a)
Order authorizing prosecution as an adult or extended jurisdiction juvenile prosecution. (1)
Unless the respondent has consented to the order, an appeal may be taken by a respondent
from an order authorizing prosecution as an adult. The appeal shall be taken only after
conviction and in the same manner as other criminal appeals, except that (A) where the
criminal prosecution has resulted in a judgment of conviction upon a plea of guilty or nolo
contendere, an appeal may be taken from the order authorizing prosecution pursuant to
K.S.A. 38-1636, and amendments thereto, notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a)
of K.S.A. 22-3602 and amendments thereto, and (B) if the criminal prosecution results in
an acquittal, an appeal may nevertheless be taken from the order authorizing prosecution
pursuant to K.S.A. 38-1636, and amendments thereto, if the order provides that it attaches
to future acts by the respondent as authorized by subsection (h) of K.S.A. 38-1636, and
amendments thereto.

      (2) If on appeal the order authorizing prosecution as an adult is reversed but the finding
of guilty is affirmed or the conviction was based on a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, the
respondent shall be deemed adjudicated to be a juvenile offender. On remand the district
court shall proceed with sentencing.

      (b) Orders of adjudgment and sentencing. An appeal may be taken by a respondent from
an order of such respondent being adjudged to be a juvenile offender or sentencing, or
both. The appeal shall be taken after, but within 10 days of, the entry of the sentence.

      (c) A departure sentence is subject to appeal by the defendant. The appeal shall be to
the appellate courts in accordance with rules adopted by the supreme court.

      (1) Pending review of the sentence, the sentencing court or the appellate court may order
the defendant confined or placed on conditional release, including bond.

      (2) On appeal from a judgment or conviction entered for an offense committed on or
after July 1, 1999, the appellate court shall not review:

      (A) Any sentence that is within the presumptive sentence for the crime; or

      (B) any sentence resulting from an agreement between the state and the defendant which
the sentencing court approves on the record.

      (3) In any appeal from a judgment of conviction imposing a sentence that departs from
the presumptive sentence, sentence review shall be limited to whether the sentencing court's
findings of fact and reasons justifying a departure:

      (A) Are supported by the evidence in the record; and

      (B) constitute substantial and compelling reasons for departure.

      (4) In any appeal, the appellate court may review a claim that:

      (A) A sentence that departs from the presumptive sentence resulted from partiality,
prejudice, oppression or corrupt motive;

      (B) the sentencing court erred in either including or excluding recognition of prior con-
victions or adjudications; or

      (C) the sentencing court erred in ranking the crime severity level of the current crime
or in determining the appropriate classification of a prior conviction or juvenile adjudication
for criminal history purposes.

      (5) The appellate court may reverse or affirm the sentence. If the appellate court con-
cludes that the trial court's factual findings are not supported by evidence in the record or
do not establish substantial and compelling reasons for a departure, it shall remand the case

CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORT
 Mr. President and Mr. Speaker: Your committee on conference on Senate amend-
ments to Substitute for HB 2469, submits the following report:

      The House accedes to all Senate amendments to the bill, and your committee on con-
ference further agrees to amend the bill, as printed with Senate Committee of the Whole
amendments, as follows:

      On page 3, by striking all on line 43;

      By striking all on page 4;

      On page 5, by striking all in lines 1 through 7 and by inserting the following:

      ``Section  1. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4705 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4705.
(a) For the purpose of sentencing, the following sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes
shall be applied in felony cases under the uniform controlled substances act for crimes
committed on or after July 1, 1993:



      (b) The provisions of subsection (a) will apply for the purpose of sentencing violations
of the uniform controlled substances act except as otherwise provided by law. Sentences
expressed in the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes in subsection (a) represent
months of imprisonment.

      (c)  (1) The sentencing court has discretion to sentence at any place within the sen-
tencing range. The sentencing judge shall select the center of the range in the usual case
and reserve the upper and lower limits for aggravating and mitigating factors insufficient to
warrant a departure. The sentencing court shall not distinguish between the controlled
substances cocaine base (9041L000) and cocaine hydrochloride (9041L005) when sentenc-
ing within the sentencing range of the grid block.

      (2) In presumptive imprisonment cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the com-
plete sentence which shall include the prison sentence, the maximum potential reduction
to such sentence as a result of good time and the period of postrelease supervision at the
sentencing hearing. Failure to pronounce the period of postrelease supervision shall not
negate the existence of such period of postrelease supervision.

      (3) In presumptive nonprison cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the prison
sentence as well as the duration of the nonprison sanction at the sentencing hearing.

      (d) Each grid block states the presumptive sentencing range for an offender whose
crime of conviction and criminal history place such offender in that grid block. If an offense
is classified in a grid block below the dispositional line, the presumptive disposition shall be
nonimprisonment. If an offense is classified in a grid block above the dispositional line, the
presumptive disposition shall be imprisonment. If an offense is classified in grid blocks 3-
E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E or 4-F, the court may impose an optional nonprison sentence
upon making the following findings on the record:

      (1) An appropriate treatment program exists which is likely to be more effective than
the presumptive prison term in reducing the risk of offender recidivism; and

      (2) the recommended treatment program is available and the offender can be admitted
to such program within a reasonable period of time; or

      (3) the nonprison sanction will serve community safety interests by promoting offender
reformation.

      Any decision made by the court regarding the imposition of an optional nonprison sen-
tence if the offense is classified in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E or 4-F shall not
be considered a departure and shall not be subject to appeal.

      (e) The sentence for a second or subsequent conviction of K.S.A. 65-4159 and amend-
ments thereto, manufacture of any controlled substance or controlled substance analog shall
be a presumptive term of imprisonment of two times the maximum duration of the pre-

person misdemeanor. Violation of subsection (a)(6), (a)(7) or (a)(8) is a severity level 9,
nonperson felony.

      (h) As used in this section, ``throwing star'' means any instrument, without handles,
consisting of a metal plate having three or more radiating points with one or more sharp
edges and designed in the shape of a polygon, trefoil, cross, star, diamond or other geometric
shape, manufactured for use as a weapon for throwing.

      Sec.  13. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4603d is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4603d.
(a) Whenever any person has been found guilty of a crime, the court may adjudge any of
the following:

      (1) Commit the defendant to the custody of the secretary of corrections if the current
crime of conviction is a felony and the sentence presumes imprisonment, or the sentence
imposed is a dispositional departure to imprisonment; or, if confinement is for a misde-
meanor, to jail for the term provided by law;

      (2) impose the fine applicable to the offense;

      (3) release the defendant on probation if the current crime of conviction and criminal
history fall within a presumptive nonprison category or through a departure for substantial
and compelling reasons subject to such conditions as the court may deem appropriate. In
felony cases except for violations of K.S.A. 8-1567 and amendments thereto, the court may
include confinement in a county jail not to exceed 30 days, which need not be served
consecutively, as a condition of probation or community corrections placement;

      (4) assign the defendant to a community correctional services program in presumptive
nonprison cases or through a departure for substantial and compelling reasons subject to
such conditions as the court may deem appropriate, including orders requiring full or partial
restitution;

      (5) assign the defendant to a conservation camp for a period not to exceed six months
as a condition of probation followed by a six-month period of follow-up through adult in-
tensive supervision by a community correctional services program, if the offender success-
fully completes the conservation camp program. If the defendant was classified in grid blocks
3-G, 3-H or 3-I of the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes, the court may impose a
nonprison sanction on the condition that the offender complete the program at the Labette
correctional conservation camp or a conservation camp established by the secretary of cor-
rections pursuant to K.S.A. 75-52,127, and amendments thereto. Such a placement decision
shall not be considered a departure and shall not be subject to appeal;

      (6) assign the defendant to a house arrest program pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4603b and
amendments thereto;

      (7) order the defendant to attend and satisfactorily complete an alcohol or drug edu-
cation or training program as provided by subsection (3) of K.S.A. 21-4502 and amendments
thereto;

      (8) order the defendant to repay the amount of any reward paid by any crime stoppers
chapter, individual, corporation or public entity which materially aided in the apprehension
or conviction of the defendant; repay the amount of any costs and expenses incurred by any
law enforcement agency in the apprehension of the defendant, if one of the current crimes
of conviction of the defendant includes escape, as defined in K.S.A. 21-3809 and amend-
ments thereto or aggravated escape, as defined in K.S.A. 21-3810 and amendments thereto;
or repay the amount of any public funds utilized by a law enforcement agency to purchase
controlled substances from the defendant during the investigation which leads to the de-
fendant's conviction. Such repayment of the amount of any such costs and expenses incurred
by a law enforcement agency or any public funds utilized by a law enforcement agency shall
be deposited and credited to the same fund from which the public funds were credited to
prior to use by the law enforcement agency;

      (9) order the defendant to pay the administrative fee authorized by K.S.A. 1998 Supp.
22-4529 and amendments thereto, unless waived by the court;

      (10) impose any appropriate combination of (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), (6), (7), (8) and (9);
or

      (11) suspend imposition of sentence in misdemeanor cases.

      In addition to or in lieu of any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to pay
restitution, which shall include, but not be limited to, damage or loss caused by the de-
fendant's crime, unless the court finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan
of restitution unworkable. If the court finds a plan of restitution unworkable, the court shall
state on the record in detail the reasons therefor.

      If the court orders restitution, the restitution shall be a judgment against the defendant
which may be collected by the court by garnishment or other execution as on judgments in
civil cases. If, after 60 days from the date restitution is ordered by the court, a defendant is
found to be in noncompliance with the plan established by the court for payment of resti-
tution, and the victim to whom restitution is ordered paid has not initiated proceedings in
accordance with K.S.A. 60-4301 et seq. and amendments thereto, the court shall assign an
agent procured by the attorney general pursuant to K.S.A. 75-719 and amendments thereto
to collect the restitution on behalf of the victim. The administrative judge of each judicial
district may assign such cases to an appropriate division of the court for the conduct of civil
collection proceedings.

      In addition to or in lieu of any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to submit
to and complete an alcohol and drug evaluation, and pay a fee therefor, when required by
subsection (4) of K.S.A. 21-4502 and amendments thereto.

      In addition to any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to reimburse the
county general fund for all or a part of the expenditures by the county to provide counsel
and other defense services to the defendant. Any such reimbursement to the county shall
be paid only after any order for restitution has been paid in full. In determining the amount
and method of payment of such sum, the court shall take account of the financial resources
of the defendant and the nature of the burden that payment of such sum will impose. A
defendant who has been required to pay such sum and who is not willfully in default in the
payment thereof may at any time petition the court which sentenced the defendant to waive
payment of such sum or any unpaid portion thereof. If it appears to the satisfaction of the
court that payment of the amount due will impose manifest hardship on the defendant or
the defendant's immediate family, the court may waive payment of all or part of the amount
due or modify the method of payment.

      In imposing a fine the court may authorize the payment thereof in installments. In re-
leasing a defendant on probation, the court shall direct that the defendant be under the
supervision of a court services officer. If the court commits the defendant to the custody of
the secretary of corrections or to jail, the court may specify in its order the amount of
restitution to be paid and the person to whom it shall be paid if restitution is later ordered
as a condition of parole or conditional release.

      When a new felony is committed while the offender is incarcerated and serving a sentence
for a felony or while the offender is on probation, assignment to a community correctional
services program, parole, conditional release, or postrelease supervision for a felony, a new
sentence shall be imposed pursuant to the consecutive sentencing requirements of K.S.A.
21-4608, and amendments thereto, and the court may sentence the offender to imprison-
ment for the new conviction, even when the new crime of conviction otherwise presumes
a nonprison sentence. In this event, imposition of a prison sentence for the new crime does
not constitute a departure. When a new felony is committed while the offender is on release
for a felony pursuant to the provisions of article 28 of chapter 22 of the Kansas Statutes
Annotated, a new sentence may be imposed pursuant to the consecutive sentencing require-
ments of K.S.A. 21-4608 and amendments thereto, and the court may sentence the offender
to imprisonment for the new conviction, even when the new crime of conviction otherwise
presumes a nonprison sentence. In this event, imposition of a prison sentence for the new
crime does not constitute a departure.

      Prior to imposing a dispositional departure for a defendant whose offense is classified in
the presumptive nonprison grid block of either sentencing guideline grid, prior to sentencing
a defendant to incarceration whose offense is classified in grid blocks 5-H, 5-I or 6-G of the
sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes or in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-
E or 4-F of the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes, or prior to revocation of a
nonprison sanction of a defendant whose offense is classified in the presumptive nonprison
grid block of either sentencing guideline grid or grid blocks 5-H, 5-I or 6-G of the sentencing
guidelines grid for nondrug crimes or in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E or 4-F of
the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes, the court shall consider placement of the
defendant in the Labette correctional conservation camp, conservation camps established
by the secretary of corrections pursuant to K.S.A. 75-52,127, and amendment thereto or a
community intermediate sanction center. Pursuant to this paragraph the defendant shall not
be sentenced to imprisonment if space is available in a conservation camp or a community
intermediate sanction center and the defendant meets all of the conservation camp's or a
community intermediate sanction center's placement criteria unless the court states on the
record the reasons for not placing the defendant in a conservation camp or a community
intermediate sanction center.

      The court in committing a defendant to the custody of the secretary of corrections shall
fix a term of confinement within the limits provided by law. In those cases where the law
does not fix a term of confinement for the crime for which the defendant was convicted,
the court shall fix the term of such confinement.

      In addition to any of the above, the court shall order the defendant to reimburse the state
general fund for all or a part of the expenditures by the state board of indigents' defense
services to provide counsel and other defense services to the defendant. In determining the
amount and method of payment of such sum, the court shall take account of the financial
resources of the defendant and the nature of the burden that payment of such sum will
impose. A defendant who has been required to pay such sum and who is not willfully in
default in the payment thereof may at any time petition the court which sentenced the
defendant to waive payment of such sum or any unpaid portion thereof. If it appears to the
satisfaction of the court that payment of the amount due will impose manifest hardship on
the defendant or the defendant's immediate family, the court may waive payment of all or
part of the amount due or modify the method of payment. The amount of attorney fees to
be included in the court order for reimbursement shall be the amount claimed by appointed
counsel on the payment voucher for indigents' defense services or the amount prescribed
by the board of indigents' defense services reimbursement tables as provided in K.S.A. 22-
4522, and amendments thereto, whichever is less.

      (b) Dispositions which do not involve commitment to the custody of the secretary of
corrections shall not entail the loss by the defendant of any civil rights. Placement of of-
fenders in a conservation camp established by the secretary of corrections pursuant to K.S.A.
75-52,127, and amendments thereto, as a nonimprisonment disposition shall not entail the
loss by the defendant of any civil rights.

      (c) This section shall not deprive the court of any authority conferred by any other
Kansas statute to decree a forfeiture of property, suspend or cancel a license, remove a
person from office, or impose any other civil penalty as a result of conviction of crime.

      (d) An application for or acceptance of probation or assignment to a community cor-
rectional services program shall not constitute an acquiescence in the judgment for purpose
of appeal, and any convicted person may appeal from such conviction, as provided by law,
without regard to whether such person has applied for probation, suspended sentence or
assignment to a community correctional services program.

      (e) The secretary of corrections is authorized to make direct placement to the Labette
correctional conservation camp or a conservation camp established by the secretary pursuant
to K.S.A. 75-52,127, and amendments thereto, of an inmate sentenced to the secretary's
custody if the inmate: (1) Has been sentenced to the secretary for a probation revocation
or, as a departure from the presumptive nonimprisonment grid block of either sentencing
grid, or for an offense which is classified in grid blocks 5-H, 5-I, or 6-G of the sentencing
guidelines grid for nondrug crimes or in grid blocks 3-E, 3-F, 3-G, 3-H, 3-I, 4-E, or 4-F of
the sentencing guidelines grid for drug crimes; and (2) otherwise meets admission criteria
of the camp. If the inmate successfully completes the six-month conservation camp program,
the secretary of corrections shall report such completion to the sentencing court and the
county or district attorney. The inmate shall then be assigned by the court to six months of
follow-up supervision conducted by the appropriate community corrections services pro-
gram. The court may also order that supervision continue thereafter for the length of time
authorized by K.S.A. 21-4611 and amendments thereto.

      (f) When it is provided by law that a person shall be sentenced pursuant to K.S.A. 1993
Supp. 21-4628, prior to its repeal, the provisions of this section shall not apply.

      Sec.  14. K.S.A. 21-4605 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4605. (a) (1) Upon
request of the attorney for the state or the counsel for the defendant, The judge shall make
available to the attorney for the state or counsel for the defendant the presentence report,
any report that may be received from the Topeka correctional facility or the state security
hospital and other diagnostic reports and shall allow the attorney or counsel a reasonable
time to review the report before sentencing the defendant. Except as otherwise provided
in this section, all these reports shall be part of the record but shall be sealed and opened
only on order of the court.

      (2) The court shall permit the attorney for the state or the counsel for the defendant,
upon request, to copy and retain any of the reports under subsection (a)(1). Any reports
copied and retained shall be kept in the records of the attorney for the state or the counsel
for the defendant and shall not be disclosed to any unauthorized person without permission
of the court. All costs of copying such reports shall be paid by the office of the attorney for
the state or the counsel for the defendant making the request.

      (b) If a defendant is committed to the custody of the secretary of corrections, all reports
under subsection (a)(1) shall be sent to the secretary of corrections and, in accordance with
K.S.A. 75-5220, and amendments thereto, to the warden of the state correctional institution
to which the defendant is conveyed.

      (c) Nothing in this section shall be construed as prohibiting the attorney for the de-
fendant from disclosing the report of the presentence investigation, or other diagnostic
reports, to the defendant after receiving court approval to do so.

      (d) Notwithstanding subsections (a), (b) and (c), the presentence report, any report that
may be received from the Topeka correctional facility or the state security hospital and other
diagnostic reports, shall be made available upon request to the Kansas sentencing commis-
sion for the purpose of data collection and evaluation. The presentence report shall become
part of the court record and shall be accessible to the public, except that the official version,
the defendant's version, the victim's statement, any psychological reports and any drug and
alcohol reports shall be accessible only to the attorney for the state and the counsel for the
defendant, the sentencing judge, the department of corrections and if requested, the Kansas
sentencing commission. If the offender is committed to the custody of the secretary of cor-
rections, the report shall be sent to the secretary and, in accordance with K.S.A. 75-5220
and amendments thereto, to the warden of the state correctional institution to which the
defendant is conveyed.

      (e) (c) For felony crimes committed on or after July 1, 1993, the provisions of this section
are not applicable to the presentence investigation report.

      Sec.  15. K.S.A. 21-4635 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4635. (a) Except as
provided in K.S.A. 21-4634 and amendments thereto, if a defendant is convicted of the crime
of capital murder and a sentence of death is not imposed, or if a defendant is convicted of
murder in the first degree based upon the finding of premeditated murder, the court shall
determine whether the defendant shall be required to serve a mandatory term of impris-
onment of 40 years or for crimes committed on and after July 1, 1999, a mandatory term
of imprisonment of 50 years or sentenced as otherwise provided by law.

      (b) In order to make such determination, the court may be presented evidence con-
cerning any matter that the court deems relevant to the question of sentence and shall
include matters relating to any of the aggravating circumstances enumerated in K.S.A. 21-
4636 and amendments thereto and any mitigating circumstances. Any such evidence which
the court deems to have probative value may be received regardless of its admissibility under
the rules of evidence, provided that the defendant is accorded a fair opportunity to rebut
any hearsay statements. Only such evidence of aggravating circumstances as the state has
made known to the defendant prior to the sentencing shall be admissible and no evidence
secured in violation of the constitution of the United States or of the state of Kansas shall
be admissible. No testimony by the defendant at the time of sentencing shall be admissible
against the defendant at any subsequent criminal proceeding. At the conclusion of the ev-
identiary presentation, the court shall allow the parties a reasonable period of time in which
to present oral argument.

      (c) If the court finds that one or more of the aggravating circumstances enumerated in
K.S.A. 21-4636 and amendments thereto exist and, further, that the existence of such ag-
gravating circumstances is not outweighed by any mitigating circumstances which are found
to exist, the defendant shall be sentenced pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4638 and amendments
thereto; otherwise, the defendant shall be sentenced as provided by law. The court shall
designate, in writing, the statutory aggravating circumstances which it found. The court may
make the findings required by this subsection for the purpose of determining whether to
sentence a defendant pursuant to K.S.A. 21-4638 and amendments thereto notwithstanding
contrary findings made by the jury or court pursuant to subsection (e) of K.S.A. 21-4624
and amendments thereto for the purpose of determining whether to sentence such defend-
ant to death.

      Sec.  16. K.S.A. 21-4638 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4638. When it is
provided by law that a person shall be sentenced pursuant to this section, such person shall
be sentenced to imprisonment for life and shall not be eligible for probation or suspension,
modification or reduction of sentence. Except as otherwise provided, in addition, a person
sentenced pursuant to this section shall not be eligible for parole prior to serving 40 years'
imprisonment, and such 40 years' imprisonment shall not be reduced by the application of
good time credits. For crimes committed on and after July 1, 1999, a person sentenced
pursuant to this section shall not be eligible for parole prior to serving 50 years' imprison-
ment, and such 50 years' imprisonment shall not be reduced by the application of good time
credits. Upon sentencing a defendant pursuant to this section, the court shall commit the
defendant to the custody of the secretary of corrections and the court shall state in the
sentencing order of the judgment form or journal entry, whichever is delivered with the
defendant to the correctional institution, that the defendant has been sentenced pursuant
to K.S.A. 21-4638 and amendments thereto.

      Sec.  17. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4704 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4704. (a)
For purposes of sentencing, the following sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes
shall be applied in felony cases for crimes committed on or after July 1, 1993:





      (b) The provisions of this section shall be applicable to the sentencing guidelines grid
for nondrug crimes. Sentences expressed in such grid represent months of imprisonment.

      (c) The sentencing guidelines grid is a two-dimensional crime severity and criminal
history classification tool. The grid's vertical axis is the crime severity scale which classifies
current crimes of conviction. The grid's horizontal axis is the criminal history scale which
classifies criminal histories.

      (d) The sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes as provided in this section defines
presumptive punishments for felony convictions, subject to judicial discretion to deviate for
substantial and compelling reasons and impose a different sentence in recognition of aggra-
vating and mitigating factors as provided in this act. The appropriate punishment for a felony
conviction should depend on the severity of the crime of conviction when compared to all
other crimes and the offender's criminal history.

      (e)  (1) The sentencing court has discretion to sentence at any place within the sen-
tencing range. The sentencing judge shall select the center of the range in the usual case
and reserve the upper and lower limits for aggravating and mitigating factors insufficient to
warrant a departure.

      (2) In presumptive imprisonment cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the com-
plete sentence which shall include the prison sentence, the maximum potential reduction
to such sentence as a result of good time and the period of postrelease supervision at the
sentencing hearing. Failure to pronounce the period of postrelease supervision shall not
negate the existence of such period of postrelease supervision.

      (3) In presumptive nonprison cases, the sentencing court shall pronounce the prison
sentence as well as the duration of the nonprison sanction at the sentencing hearing.

      (f) Each grid block states the presumptive sentencing range for an offender whose crime
of conviction and criminal history place such offender in that grid block. If an offense is
classified in a grid block below the dispositional line, the presumptive disposition shall be
nonimprisonment. If an offense is classified in a grid block above the dispositional line, the
presumptive disposition shall be imprisonment. If an offense is classified in grid blocks 5-
H, 5-I or 6-G, the court may impose an optional nonprison sentence upon making the
following findings on the record:

      (1) An appropriate treatment program exists which is likely to be more effective than
the presumptive prison term in reducing the risk of offender recidivism; and

      (2) the recommended treatment program is available and the offender can be admitted
to such program within a reasonable period of time; or

      (3) the nonprison sanction will serve community safety interests by promoting offender
reformation.

      Any decision made by the court regarding the imposition of an optional nonprison sen-
tence if the offense is classified in grid blocks 5-H, 5-I or 6-G shall not be considered a
departure and shall not be subject to appeal.

      (g) The sentence for the violation of K.S.A. 21-3411, aggravated assault against a law
enforcement officer or K.S.A. 21-3415, aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer
and amendments thereto which places the defendant's sentence in grid block 6-H or 6-I
shall be presumed imprisonment. The court may impose an optional nonprison sentence
upon making a finding on the record that the nonprison sanction will serve community
safety interests by promoting offender reformation. Any decision made by the court regard-
ing the imposition of the optional nonprison sentence, if the offense is classified in grid
block 6-H or 6-I, shall not be considered departure and shall not be subject to appeal.

      (h) When a firearm is used to commit any person felony, the offender's sentence shall
be presumed imprisonment. The court may impose an optional nonprison sentence upon
making a finding on the record that the nonprison sanction will serve community safety
interests by promoting offender reformation. Any decision made by the court regarding the
imposition of the optional nonprison sentence shall not be considered a departure and shall
not be subject to appeal.

      (i) The sentence for the violation of the felony provision of K.S.A. 8-1567 and subsection
(b) of K.S.A. 21-3705, (c)(3) of K.S.A. 21-3412 and amendments thereto shall be as provided
by the specific mandatory sentencing requirements of that section and shall not be subject
to the provisions of this section or K.S.A. 21-4707 and amendments thereto. Notwithstanding
the provisions of any other section, the term of imprisonment imposed for the violation of
the felony provision of K.S.A. 8-1567 and subsection (b) of K.S.A. 21-3705, (c)(3) of K.S.A.
21-3412 and amendments thereto shall not be served in a state facility in the custody of the
secretary of corrections.

      (j) The sentence for any persistent sex offender whose current convicted crime carries
a presumptive term of imprisonment shall be double the maximum duration of the pre-
sumptive imprisonment term. The sentence for any persistent sex offender whose current
conviction carries a presumptive nonprison term shall be presumed imprisonment and shall
be double the maximum duration of the presumptive imprisonment term. Except as oth-
erwise provided in this subsection, as used in this subsection, ``persistent sex offender'' means
a person who: (1) Has been convicted in this state of a sexually violent crime, as defined in
K.S.A. 22-3717 and amendments thereto; and (2) at the time of the conviction under sub-
section (1) has at least one conviction for a sexually violent crime, as defined in K.S.A. 22-
3717 and amendments thereto in this state or comparable felony under the laws of another
state, the federal government or a foreign government. The provisions of this subsection
shall not apply to any person whose current convicted crime is a severity level 1 or 2 felony.

      (k) If it is shown at sentencing that the offender committed any felony violation for the
benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with any criminal street gang, with the specific
intent to promote, further or assist in any criminal conduct by gang members, the offender's
sentence shall be presumed imprisonment. Any decision made by the court regarding the
imposition of the optional nonprison sentence shall not be considered a departure and shall
not be subject to appeal. As used in this subsection, ``criminal street gang'' means any
organization, association or group of three or more persons, whether formal or informal,
having as one of its primary activities the commission of one or more person felonies or
felony violations of the uniform controlled substances act, K.S.A. 65-4101 et seq., and
amendments thereto, which has a common name or common identifying sign or symbol,
whose members, individually or collectively engage in or have engaged in the commission,
attempted commission, conspiracy to commit or solicitation of two or more person felonies
or felony violations of the uniform controlled substances act, K.S.A. 65-4101 et seq., and
amendments thereto, or any substantially similar offense from another jurisdiction.

      (l) The sentence for a violation of subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-3715 and amendments
thereto when such person being sentenced has a prior conviction for a violation of subsection
(a) or (b) of K.S.A. 21-3715 or 21-3716 and amendments thereto shall be presumed
imprisonment.

      Sec.  18. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4706 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4706. (a)
For crimes committed on or after July 1, 1993, the sentences of imprisonment shall rep-
resent the time a person shall actually serve, subject to a reduction of up to 15% of the
primary sentence for good time as authorized by law.

      (b) The sentencing court shall pronounce sentence in all felony cases.

      (c) Violations of K.S.A. 21-3401, subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-3402, 21-3439 and 21-3801
and amendments thereto are off-grid crimes for the purpose of sentencing. Except as oth-
erwise provided by K.S.A. 21-4622 through 21-4627, and 21-4629 through 21-4631, and
amendments thereto, the sentence shall be imprisonment for life.

      Sec.  19. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 21-4711 is hereby amended to read as follows: 21-4711. In
addition to the provisions of K.S.A. 21-4710 and amendments thereto, the following shall
apply in determining an offender's criminal history classification as contained in the pre-
sumptive sentencing guidelines grid for nondrug crimes and the presumptive sentencing
guidelines grid for drug crimes:

      (a) Every three prior adult convictions or juvenile adjudications of class A and class B
person misdemeanors in the offender's criminal history, or any combination thereof, shall
be rated as one adult conviction or one juvenile adjudication of a person felony for criminal
history purposes. Every three prior adult convictions or juvenile adjudications of assault as
defined in K.S.A. 21-3408 and amendments thereto occurring within a period of commenc-
ing three years prior to the date of conviction for the current crime of conviction shall be
rated as one adult conviction or one juvenile adjudication of a person felony for criminal
history purposes.

      (b) A conviction of subsection (a)(1) of K.S.A. 21-4204 and amendments thereto, crim-
inal possession of firearms by a person who is both addicted to and an unlawful user of a
controlled substance, subsection (a)(4) of K.S.A. 21-4204 and amendments thereto, posses-
sion of a firearm on school grounds or K.S.A. 21-4218 and amendments thereto, possession
of a firearm on the grounds or in the state capitol building, will be scored as a select class
B nonperson misdemeanor conviction or adjudication and shall not be scored as a person
misdemeanor for criminal history purposes.

      (c)  (1) If the current crime of conviction was committed before July 1, 1996, and is for
subsection (b) of K.S.A. 21-3404, involuntary manslaughter in the commission of K.S.A. 8-
1567 and amendments thereto driving under the influence, then, each prior adult conviction
or juvenile adjudication for K.S.A. 8-1567 and amendments thereto shall count as one person
felony for criminal history purposes.

      (2) If the current crime of conviction was committed on or after July 1, 1996, and is for
involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, each prior
adult conviction, diversion in lieu of criminal prosecution or juvenile adjudication for an act
described in K.S.A. 8-1567 and amendments thereto shall count as one person felony for
criminal history purposes.

      (d) Prior burglary adult convictions and juvenile adjudications will be scored for criminal
history purposes as follows:

      (1) As a prior person felony if the prior conviction or adjudication was classified as a
burglary as described in subsection (a) of K.S.A. 21-3715 and amendments thereto.

      (2) As a prior nonperson felony if the prior conviction or adjudication was classified as
a burglary as described in subsection (b) or (c) of K.S.A. 21-3715 and amendments thereto.

      The facts required to classify prior burglary adult convictions and juvenile adjudications
must be established by the state by a preponderance of the evidence.

      (e) Out-of-state convictions and juvenile adjudications will be used in classifying the
offender's criminal history. An out-of-state crime will be classified as either a felony or a
misdemeanor according to the convicting jurisdiction. If a crime is a felony in another state,
it will be counted as a felony in Kansas. The state of Kansas shall classify the crime as person
or nonperson. In designating a crime as person or nonperson comparable offenses shall be
referred to. If the state of Kansas does not have a comparable offense, the out-of-state
conviction shall be classified as a nonperson crime. Convictions or adjudications occurring
within the federal system, other state systems, the District of Columbia, foreign, tribal or
military courts are considered out-of-state convictions or adjudications. The facts required
to classify out-of-state adult convictions and juvenile adjudications must be established by
the state by a preponderance of the evidence.

      (f) Except as provided in subsections (4), (5) and (6) of K.S.A. 21-4705 21-4710 and
amendments thereto, juvenile adjudications will be applied in the same manner as adult
convictions. Out-of-state juvenile adjudications will be treated as juvenile adjudications in
Kansas.

      (g) A prior felony conviction of an attempt, a conspiracy or a solicitation as provided in
K.S.A. 21-3301, 21-3302 or 21-3303 and amendments thereto, to commit a crime shall be
treated as a person or nonperson crime in accordance with the designation assigned to the
underlying crime.

      (h) Drug crimes are designated as nonperson crimes for criminal history scoring.

release supervision period upon completion of court ordered programs and completion of
the presumptive postrelease supervision period, as determined by the crime of conviction,
pursuant to subparagraph (d)(1)(A) or (B). Early discharge from postrelease supervision is
at the discretion of the parole board.

      (vii) Persons convicted of crimes deemed sexually violent or sexually motivated, shall
be registered according to the habitual sex offender registration act, K.S.A. 22-4901 through
22-4910 and amendments thereto.

      (D) The period of postrelease supervision provided in subparagraphs (A) and (B) may
be reduced by up to 12 months based on the offender's compliance with conditions of
supervision and overall performance while on postrelease supervision. The reduction in the
supervision period shall be on an earned basis pursuant to rules and regulations adopted by
the secretary of corrections.

      (E) In cases where sentences for crimes from more than one severity level have been

      (K) an attempt, conspiracy or criminal solicitation, as defined in K.S.A. 21-3301, 21-

      (e) If an inmate is sentenced to imprisonment for a crime committed while on parole
or conditional release, the inmate shall be eligible for parole as provided by subsection (c),
except that the Kansas parole board may postpone the inmate's parole eligibility date by
assessing a penalty not exceeding the period of time which could have been assessed if the
inmate's parole or conditional release had been violated for reasons other than conviction
of a crime.

      (f) If a person is sentenced to prison for a crime committed on or after July 1, 1993,
while on probation, parole, conditional release or in a community corrections program, for
a crime committed prior to July 1, 1993, and the person is not eligible for retroactive
application of the sentencing guidelines and amendments thereto pursuant to K.S.A. 21-
4724 and amendments thereto, the new sentence shall not be aggregated with the old
sentence, but shall begin when the person is paroled or reaches the conditional release date
on the old sentence. If the offender was past the offender's conditional release date at the
time the new offense was committed, the new sentence shall not be aggregated with the
old sentence but shall begin when the person is ordered released by the Kansas parole board
or reaches the maximum sentence expiration date on the old sentence, whichever is earlier.
The new sentence shall then be served as otherwise provided by law. The period of post-
release supervision shall be based on the new sentence, except that those offenders whose
old sentence is a term of imprisonment for life, imposed pursuant to K.S.A. 1993 Supp. 21-
4628 prior to its repeal, or an indeterminate sentence with a maximum term of life impris-
onment, for which there is no conditional release or maximum sentence expiration date,
shall remain on postrelease supervision for life or until discharged from supervision by the
Kansas parole board.

      (g) Subject to the provisions of this section, the Kansas parole board may release on
parole those persons confined in institutions who are eligible for parole when: (1) The board
believes that the inmate should be released for hospitalization, for deportation or to answer
the warrant or other process of a court and is of the opinion that there is reasonable prob-
ability that the inmate can be released without detriment to the community or to the inmate;
or (2) the secretary of corrections has reported to the board in writing that the inmate has
satisfactorily completed the programs required by any agreement entered under K.S.A. 75-
5210a and amendments thereto, or any revision of such agreement, and the board believes
that the inmate is able and willing to fulfill the obligations of a law abiding citizen and is of
the opinion that there is reasonable probability that the inmate can be released without
detriment to the community or to the inmate. Parole shall not be granted as an award of
clemency and shall not be considered a reduction of sentence or a pardon.

      (h) The Kansas parole board shall hold a parole hearing at least the month prior to the
month an inmate will be eligible for parole under subsections (a), (b) and (c). At least the
month preceding the parole hearing, the county or district attorney of the county where the
inmate was convicted shall give written notice of the time and place of the public comment
sessions for the inmate to any victim of the inmate's crime who is alive and whose address
is known to the county or district attorney or, if the victim is deceased, to the victim's family
if the family's address is known to the county or district attorney. Except as otherwise
provided, failure to notify pursuant to this section shall not be a reason to postpone a parole
hearing. In the case of any inmate convicted of a class A felony the secretary of corrections
shall give written notice of the time and place of the public comment session for such inmate
at least one month preceding the public comment session to any victim of such inmate's
crime or the victim's family pursuant to K.S.A. 74-7338 and amendments thereto. If noti-
fication is not given to such victim or such victim's family in the case of any inmate convicted
of a class A felony, the board shall postpone a decision on parole of the inmate to a time at
least 30 days after notification is given as provided in this section. Nothing in this section
shall create a cause of action against the state or an employee of the state acting within the
scope of the employee's employment as a result of the failure to notify pursuant to this
section. If granted parole, the inmate may be released on parole on the date specified by
the board, but not earlier than the date the inmate is eligible for parole under subsections
(a), (b) and (c). At each parole hearing and, if parole is not granted, at such intervals there-
after as it determines appropriate, the Kansas parole board shall consider: (1) Whether the
inmate has satisfactorily completed the programs required by any agreement entered under
K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto, or any revision of such agreement; and (2) all
pertinent information regarding such inmate, including, but not limited to, the circum-
stances of the offense of the inmate; the presentence report; the previous social history and
criminal record of the inmate; the conduct, employment, and attitude of the inmate in
prison; the reports of such physical and mental examinations as have been made; comments
of the victim and the victim's family; comments of the public; official comments; and capacity
of state correctional institutions.

      (i) In those cases involving inmates sentenced for a crime committed after July 1, 1993,
the parole board will review the inmates proposed release plan. The board may schedule a
hearing if they desire. The board may impose any condition they deem necessary to insure
public safety, aid in the reintegration of the inmate into the community, or items not com-
pleted under the agreement entered into under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto.
The board may not advance or delay an inmate's release date. Every inmate while on post-
release supervision shall remain in the legal custody of the secretary of corrections and is
subject to the orders of the secretary.

      (j) Before ordering the parole of any inmate, the Kansas parole board shall have the
inmate appear before either in person or via a video conferencing format and shall interview
the inmate unless impractical because of the inmate's physical or mental condition or ab-
sence from the institution. Every inmate while on parole shall remain in the legal custody
of the secretary of corrections and is subject to the orders of the secretary. Whenever the
Kansas parole board formally considers placing an inmate on parole and no agreement has
been entered into with the inmate under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto, the
board shall notify the inmate in writing of the reasons for not granting parole. If an agree-
ment has been entered under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto and the inmate has
not satisfactorily completed the programs specified in the agreement, or any revision of such
agreement, the board shall notify the inmate in writing of the specific programs the inmate
must satisfactorily complete before parole will be granted. If parole is not granted only
because of a failure to satisfactorily complete such programs, the board shall grant parole
upon the secretary's certification that the inmate has successfully completed such programs.
If an agreement has been entered under K.S.A. 75-5210a and amendments thereto and the
secretary of corrections has reported to the board in writing that the inmate has satisfactorily
completed the programs required by such agreement, or any revision thereof, the board
shall not require further program participation. However, if the board determines that other
pertinent information regarding the inmate warrants the inmate's not being released on
parole, the board shall state in writing the reasons for not granting the parole. If parole is
denied for an inmate sentenced for a crime other than a class A or class B felony or an off-
grid felony, the board shall hold another parole hearing for the inmate not later than one
year after the denial unless the parole board finds that it is not reasonable to expect that
parole would be granted at a hearing if held in the next three years or during the interim
period of a deferral. In such case, the parole board may defer subsequent parole hearings
for up to three years but any such deferral by the board shall require the board to state the
basis for its findings. If parole is denied for an inmate sentenced for a class A or class B
felony or an off-grid felony, the board shall hold another parole hearing for the inmate not
later than three years after the denial unless the parole board finds that it is not reasonable
to expect that parole would be granted at a hearing if held in the next 10 years or during
the interim period of a deferral. In such case, the parole board may defer subsequent parole
hearings for up to 10 years but any such deferral shall require the board to state the basis
for its findings.

      (k) Parolees and persons on postrelease supervision shall be assigned, upon release, to
the appropriate level of supervision pursuant to the criteria established by the secretary of
corrections.

      (l) The Kansas parole board shall adopt rules and regulations in accordance with K.S.A.
77-415 et seq., and amendments thereto, not inconsistent with the law and as it may deem
proper or necessary, with respect to the conduct of parole hearings, postrelease supervision
reviews, revocation hearings, orders of restitution, reimbursement of expenditures by the
state board of indigents' defense services and other conditions to be imposed upon parolees
or releasees. Whenever an order for parole or postrelease supervision is issued it shall recite
the conditions thereof.

      (m) Whenever the Kansas parole board orders the parole of an inmate or establishes
conditions for an inmate placed on postrelease supervision, the board:

      (1) Unless it finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan of payment
unworkable, shall order as a condition of parole or postrelease supervision that the parolee
or the person on postrelease supervision pay any transportation expenses resulting from
returning the parolee or the person on postrelease supervision to this state to answer criminal
charges or a warrant for a violation of a condition of probation, assignment to a community
correctional services program, parole, conditional release or postrelease supervision;

      (2) to the extent practicable, shall order as a condition of parole or postrelease super-
vision that the parolee or the person on postrelease supervision make progress towards or
successfully complete the equivalent of a secondary education if the inmate has not previ-
ously completed such educational equivalent and is capable of doing so;

      (3) may order that the parolee or person on postrelease supervision perform community
or public service work for local governmental agencies, private corporations organized not-
for-profit or charitable or social service organizations performing services for the
community;

      (4) may order the parolee or person on postrelease supervision to pay the administrative
fee imposed pursuant to K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 22-4529 unless the board finds compelling
circumstances which would render payment unworkable; and

      (5) unless it finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan of payment
unworkable, shall order that the parolee or person on postrelease supervision reimburse the
state for all or part of the expenditures by the state board of indigents' defense services to
provide counsel and other defense services to the person. In determining the amount and
method of payment of such sum, the parole board shall take account of the financial re-
sources of the person and the nature of the burden that the payment of such sum will
impose. Such amount shall not exceed the amount claimed by appointed counsel on the
payment voucher for indigents' defense services or the amount prescribed by the board of
indigents' defense services reimbursement tables as provided in K.S.A. 22-4522 and amend-
ments thereto, whichever is less, minus any previous payments for such services.

      (n) If the court which sentenced an inmate specified at the time of sentencing the
amount and the recipient of any restitution ordered as a condition of parole or postrelease
supervision, the Kansas parole board shall order as a condition of parole or postrelease
supervision that the inmate pay restitution in the amount and manner provided in the journal
entry unless the board finds compelling circumstances which would render a plan of resti-
tution unworkable.

      (o) Whenever the Kansas parole board grants the parole of an inmate, the board, within
10 days of the date of the decision to grant parole, shall give written notice of the decision
to the county or district attorney of the county where the inmate was sentenced.

      (p) When an inmate is to be released on postrelease supervision, the secretary, within
30 days prior to release, shall provide the county or district attorney of the county where
the inmate was sentenced written notice of the release date.

      (q) Inmates shall be released on postrelease supervision upon the termination of the
prison portion of their sentence. Time served while on postrelease supervision will vest.

      (r) An inmate who is allocated regular good time credits as provided in K.S.A. 22-3725
and amendments thereto may receive meritorious good time credits in increments of not
more than 90 days per meritorious act. These credits may be awarded by the secretary of
corrections when an inmate has acted in a heroic or outstanding manner in coming to the
assistance of another person in a life threatening situation, preventing injury or death to a
person, preventing the destruction of property or taking actions which result in a financial
savings to the state.

until such offender has registered for a period of at least 10 years for each conviction for
which an offender must register as provided by this act. The court shall hold a hearing on
the application at which the applicant and any interested persons may present witnesses and

rehabilitated and that the sex offender, does not suffer from a mental abnormality or per-
sonality disorder that would make the person likely to engage in a predatory sexually violent
crime, the court shall grant an order relieving the offender of the duty of further registration

register due to a conviction of a sexually violent crime as defined in K.S.A. 22-4902 and
amendments thereto, the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the offender
is rehabilitated, the court shall grant an order relieving the offender of the duty of further
registration under this act.

      (d) Any person registered as provided in this act may apply to the sentencing court for
an order relieving such person of the duty of registration for any conviction which has been
set aside. The court shall hold a hearing on the application at which the applicant shall
present evidence verifying that such applicant's conviction was set aside. If the court finds
that the person's conviction was set aside, the court shall grant an order relieving the person
of the duty of further registration under this act for any conviction which has been set aside.
Such court granting such an order shall forward a copy of such order to the sheriff of the
county in which such person has registered and to the Kansas bureau of investigation. Upon
receipt of such copy of the order, such sheriff and the Kansas bureau of investigation shall
remove such person's name from the registry for any conviction which has been set aside.
Nothing contained in this subsection shall relieve any person of the duty to register or any
other duty prescribed under this act for any conviction which has not been set aside.

      (e) Any person required to register as an offender pursuant to the Kansas offender
registration act, K.S.A. 22-4901 et seq., and amendments thereto, who has a second or
subsequent conviction for an offense which requires registration pursuant to such act, and
any person who has been convicted of an aggravated offense, shall not be granted an order
relieving the offender of further registration under this act. The provisions of this subsection
shall expire on June 30, 2009.

      Sec.  35. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 75-5217, as amended by section 1 of 1999 House Bill No.
2137, is hereby amended to read as follows: 75-5217. (a) At any time during release on
parole, conditional release or postrelease supervision, the secretary of corrections may issue
a warrant for the arrest of a released inmate for violation of any of the conditions of release,
or a notice to appear to answer to a charge of violation. Such notice shall be served personally
upon the released inmate. The warrant shall authorize any law enforcement officer to arrest
and deliver the released inmate to a place as provided by subsection (f). Any parole officer
may arrest such released inmate without a warrant, or may deputize any other officer with
power of arrest to do so by giving such officer a written arrest and detain order setting forth
that the released inmate, in the judgment of the parole officer, has violated the conditions
of the inmate's release. The written arrest and detain order delivered with the released
inmate by the arresting officer to the official in charge of the institution or place to which
the released inmate is brought for detention shall be sufficient warrant for detaining the
inmate. After making an arrest the parole officer shall present to the detaining authorities
a similar arrest and detain order and statement of the circumstances of violation. Pending
a hearing, as provided in this section, upon any charge of violation the released inmate shall
remain incarcerated in the institution or place to which the inmate is taken for detention.

      (b) Upon such arrest and detention, the parole officer shall notify the secretary of cor-
rections, or the secretary's designee, within five days and shall submit in writing a report
showing in what manner the released inmate had violated the conditions of release. After
such notification is given to the secretary of corrections, or upon an arrest by warrant as
herein provided, and the finding of probable cause pursuant to procedures established by
the secretary of a violation of the released inmate's conditions of release, the secretary shall
cause the released inmate to be brought before the Kansas parole board, its designee or
designees, for a hearing on the violation charged, under such rules and regulations as the
board may adopt. It is within the discretion of the Kansas parole board whether such hearing
requires the released inmate to appear personally before the board when such inmate's
violation results from a conviction for a new felony or misdemeanor. An offender under
determinant sentencing whose violation does not result from a conviction of a new felony or
misdemeanor may waive the right to a final revocation hearing before the Kansas parole
board under such conditions and terms as may be prescribed by rules and regulations prom-
ulgated by the Kansas parole board. Relevant written statements made under oath shall be
admitted and considered by the Kansas parole board, its designee or designees, along with
other evidence presented at the hearing. If the violation is established to the satisfaction of
the Kansas parole board, the board may continue or revoke the parole or conditional release,
or enter such other order as the board may see fit. Revocations The revocation of release
of inmates who are on a specified period of postrelease supervision shall be for a six-month
period of confinement from the date of the revocation hearing before the board or the
effective date of waiver of such hearing by the offender pursuant to rules and regulations
promulgated by the Kansas parole board, if the violation does not result from a conviction
for a new felony or misdemeanor. Such period of confinement may be reduced by not more
than three months based on the inmate's conduct, work and program participating during
the incarceration period. The reduction in the incarceration period shall be on an earned
basis pursuant to rules and regulations adopted by the secretary of corrections.

      (c) If the violation does result from a conviction for a new felony or misdemeanor, upon
revocation the inmate shall serve the entire remaining balance of the period of postrelease
supervision even if the new conviction did not result in the imposition of a new term of
imprisonment.

      (d) In the event the released inmate reaches conditional release date as provided by
K.S.A. 22-3718 and amendments thereto after a finding of probable cause, pursuant to
procedures established by the secretary of corrections of a violation of the released inmate's
conditions of release, but prior to a hearing before the Kansas parole board, the secretary
of corrections shall be authorized to detain the inmate until the hearing by the Kansas parole
board. The secretary shall then enforce the order issued by the Kansas parole board.

      (e) If the secretary of corrections issues a warrant for the arrest of a released inmate
for violation of any of the conditions of release and the released inmate is subsequently
arrested in the state of Kansas, either pursuant to the warrant issued by the secretary of
corrections or for any other reason, the released inmate's sentence shall not be credited
with the period of time from the date of the issuance of the secretary's warrant to the date
of the released inmate's arrest.

      If a released inmate for whom a warrant has been issued by the secretary of corrections
for violation of the conditions of release is subsequently arrested in another state, and the
released inmate has been authorized as a condition of such inmate's release to reside in or
travel to the state in which the released inmate was arrested, and the released inmate has
not absconded from supervision, the released inmate's sentence shall not be credited with
the period of time from the date of the issuance of the warrant to the date of the released
inmate's arrest. If the released inmate for whom a warrant has been issued by the secretary
of corrections for violation of the conditions of release is subsequently arrested in another
state for reasons other than the secretary's warrant and the released inmate does not have
authorization to be in the other state or if authorized to be in the other state has been
charged by the secretary with having absconded from supervision, the released inmate's
sentence shall not be credited with the period of time from the date of the issuance of the
warrant by the secretary to the date the released inmate is first available to be returned to
the state of Kansas. If the released inmate for whom a warrant has been issued by the
secretary of corrections for violation of a condition of release is subsequently arrested in
another state pursuant only to the secretary's warrant, the released inmate's sentence shall
not be credited with the period of time from the date of the issuance of the secretary's
warrant to the date of the released inmate's arrest, regardless of whether the released in-
mate's presence in the other state was authorized or the released inmate had absconded
from supervision.

      The secretary may issue a warrant for the arrest of a released inmate for violation of any
of the conditions of release and may direct that all reasonable means to serve the warrant
and detain such released inmate be employed including but not limited to notifying the
federal bureau of investigation of such violation and issuance of warrant and requesting from
the federal bureau of investigation any pertinent information it may possess concerning the
whereabouts of the released inmate.

      (f) Law enforcement officers shall execute warrants issued by the secretary of correc-
tions pursuant to subsection (a) or (d), and shall deliver the inmate named in the warrant
to the jail used by the county where the inmate is arrested unless some other place is
designated by the secretary, in the same manner as for the execution of any arrest warrant.

      (g) For the purposes of this section, an inmate or released inmate is an individual under
the supervision of the secretary of corrections, including, but not limited to, an individual
on parole, conditional release, postrelease supervision, probation granted by another state
or an individual supervised under any interstate compact in accordance with the provisions
of the uniform act for out-of-state parolee supervision, K.S.A. 22-4101 et seq. and amend-
ments thereto.

      New Sec.  36. Nothing in the Kansas offender registration act shall create a cause of
action against the state or an employee of the state acting within the scope of the employee's
employment as a result of requiring an offender to register or an offender's failure to register.

      New Sec.  37. (a) Any offender who was required to be registered pursuant to the Kansas
offender registration act K.S.A. 22-4901 et seq. and amendments thereto, prior to July 1,
1999, and who would not have been required to be registered pursuant to the Kansas
offender registration act on and after July 1, 1999, as a result of enactment of this act, shall
be entitled to be relieved of the requirement to be registered. Such offender may apply to
the sentencing court for an order relieving the offender of the duty of registration. The
court shall hold a hearing on the application at which the applicant shall present evidence
verifying that such applicant no longer satisfies the definition of offender pursuant to K.S.A.
22-4902 and amendments thereto. If the court finds that the person no longer satisfies the
definition of offender pursuant to K.S.A. 22-4902 and amendments thereto, the court shall
grant an order relieving the offender's duty to register if the offender no longer fulfills the
definition of offender pursuant to K.S.A. 22-4902 and amendments thereto. Such court
granting such an order shall forward a copy of such order to the sheriff of the county in
which such person has registered and to the Kansas bureau of investigation. Upon receipt
of such copy of the order, such sheriff and the Kansas bureau of investigation shall remove
such person's name from the registry.

      (b) This section shall be part of an supplemental to the Kansas offender registration act.

EXPLANATIONS OF VOTE
 Mr. Speaker: I vote ``no'' on SB 149. Although SB 149 contains a number of valuable
provisions, it also reduces criminal sentences in several areas. Included are reductions in
sentence for certain sex offenses, auto theft, and other non-drug crimes. I have no interest
in coddling criminals by reducing sentences. Therefore, despite the other, more desirable
features of the bill, I must vote ``no.''--John T. Edmonds

   Mr. Speaker: I voted against the SB 149 conference committee report because I believe
that it wrongly reduces sentences for some very egregious crimes. Among the reductions,
this conference report reduces the length of sentences for level I and II Non Drug Grid
Crimes -- including rape and kidnapping -- by 20 percent.

 It is unfortunate that these sentence reductions, which I cannot support, were in the same
legislation as important tough-on-crime provisions. For example, this conference report
raises the Hard 40 sentence to a Hard 50 sentence. I would have supported this conference
report were it not for the sentence reductions.--Kent Glasscock

CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORT
 Mr. President and Mr. Speaker: Your committee on conference on Senate amend-
ments to HB 2092, submits the following report:

      The House accedes to all Senate amendments to the bill, and your committee on con-
ference further agrees to amend the bill, as printed with Senate Committee of the Whole
amendments, as follows:

      On page 1, by striking all in lines 22 through 43;

      By striking all on pages 2 through 5;

      On page 6, preceding line 1, by inserting new material to read as follows:

      ``New Section  1. (a) The Kansas youth authority established by K.S.A. 75-7008 prior to
amendment by this act hereby is abolished.

      (b) All of the powers, duties and functions of the Kansas youth authority are hereby
transferred to and conferred and imposed upon the Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice
and delinquency prevention.

      (c) The Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention shall be
the successor in every way to the powers, duties and functions of the Kansas youth authority
in which the same were vested prior to the effective date of this act. Every act performed
in the exercise of such powers, duties and functions by or under the authority of the Kansas
advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention shall be deemed to have the
same force and effect as if performed by the Kansas youth authority in which such powers,
duties and functions were vested prior to the effective date of this act.

      (d) Whenever the Kansas youth authority is referred to or designated by a statute,
contract or other document, such reference or designation shall be deemed to apply to the
Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention.

      (e) All of the records, memoranda, writings and property of the Kansas youth authority
shall be and hereby are transferred to the Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice and
delinquency prevention and such advisory group shall have legal custody of the same.

      New Sec.  2. (a) (1) Whenever a person is adjudicated as a juvenile offender, the court
upon motion of the state, shall hold a hearing to consider imposition of a departure sentence.
The motion shall state that a departure is sought and the reasons and factors relied upon.
The hearing shall be scheduled so that the parties have adequate time to prepare and present
arguments regarding the issues of departure sentencing. The victim of a crime or the victim's
family shall be notified of the right to be present at the hearing for the convicted person by
the county or district attorney. The parties may submit written arguments to the court prior
to the date of the hearing and may make oral arguments before the court at the hearing.
The court shall review the victim impact statement, if available. Prior to the hearing, the
court shall transmit to the defendant or the defendant's attorney and the prosecuting attor-
ney copies of the predispositional investigation report.

      (2) At the conclusion of the hearing or within 20 days thereafter, the court shall issue
findings of fact and conclusions of law regarding the issues submitted by the parties, and
shall enter an appropriate order.

      (3) If a factual aspect of a crime is a statutory element of the crime or is used to
determine crime severity, that aspect of the current crime of conviction may be used as an
aggravating factor only if the criminal conduct constituting that aspect of the current crime
of conviction is significantly different from the usual criminal conduct captured by the aspect
of the crime. Subject to this provision, the nonexclusive lists of aggravating factors provided
in subsection (b)(2) of K.S.A. 21-4716, and amendments thereto, and in subsection (a) of
K.S.A. 21-4717, and amendments thereto, may be considered in determining whether sub-
stantial and compelling reasons exist.

      (b) If the court decides to depart on its own volition, without a motion from the state,
the court must notify all parties of its intent and allow reasonable time for either party to
respond if they request. The notice shall state that a departure is intended by the court and
the reasons and factors relied upon.

      (c) In each case in which the court imposes a sentence that deviates from the pre-
sumptive sentence, the court shall make findings of fact as to the reasons for departure
regardless of whether a hearing is requested.

      (d) If the sentencing judge departs from the presumptive sentence, the judge shall state
on the record at the time of sentencing the substantial and compelling reasons for the
departure. When a departure sentence is appropriate, the sentencing judge may depart from
the matrix as provided in this section. When a sentencing judge departs in setting the
duration of a presumptive term of imprisonment:

      (1) The presumptive term of imprisonment set in such departure shall not total more
than double the maximum duration of the presumptive imprisonment term;

      (2) the court shall have no authority to reduce the minimum term of confinement as
defined within the sentencing matrix; and

      (3) the maximum term for commitment of any juvenile offender to a juvenile correc-
tional facility is age 22 years, 6 months.

      (e) A departure sentence may be appealed as provided in K.S.A. 38-1681, and amend-
ments thereto.

      New Sec.  3. (a) A permanent guardian may be appointed after a finding of unfitness
pursuant to K.S.A. 38-1583 and amendments thereto or with the consent and agreement of
the parents.

      (b) Upon appointment of the permanent guardian, the child in need of care proceeding
shall be dismissed.

      Sec.  4. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1502 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1502. As

facility, designated by the court, where the child shall be detained for not more than 24
hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays. It shall be the duty of the law
enforcement officer to furnish to the county or district attorney, without unnecessary delay,
all the information in the possession of the officer pertaining to the child, the child's parents
or other persons interested in or likely to be interested in the child and all other facts and
circumstances which caused the child to be taken into custody.

      (b) When any law enforcement officer takes into custody any child as provided in sub-
section (c) of K.S.A. 38-1527 and amendments thereto, proceedings shall be initiated in
accordance with the provisions of the interstate compact on juveniles, K.S.A. 38-1001 et
seq. and amendments thereto. Any child taken into custody pursuant to the interstate com-
pact on juveniles may be detained in a juvenile detention facility or other secure facility.

      (c) Whenever a child under the age of 18 years is taken into custody by a law enforce-
ment officer without a court order and is thereafter placed in the custody of a shelter facility,
court services officer, juvenile intake and assessment worker, licensed attendant care center
or other person as authorized by this code, the facility or person shall have physical custody
and provide care and supervision for the child upon written application of the law enforce-
ment officer. The application shall state:

      (1) The name and address of the child, if known;

      (2) the names and addresses of the child's parents or nearest relatives and persons with
whom the child has been residing, if known; and

      (3) the officer's belief that the child is a child in need of care and that there are rea-
sonable grounds to believe that the circumstances or condition of the child is such that,
unless the child is placed in the immediate custody of the shelter facility or other person,
it would be harmful to the child.

      (d) A copy of the application shall be furnished by the facility or person receiving the
child to the county or district attorney without unnecessary delay.

      (e) The shelter facility or other person designated by the court who has custody of the
child pursuant to this section shall discharge the child not later than 48 72 hours following
admission, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, unless a court has entered an
order pertaining to temporary custody or release.

      (f) In absence of a court order to the contrary, the county or district attorney or the
placing law enforcement agency shall have the authority to direct at any time the release of
the child.

      (g) When any law enforcement officer takes into custody any child as provided in sub-
section (d) of K.S.A. 38-1527, and amendments thereto, the child shall forthwith be deliv-
ered to the school in which the child is enrolled, any location designated by the school in
which the child is enrolled to address truancy issues or the child's parent or other custodian.

      Sec.  6. K.S.A. 38-1542 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1542. (a) The court
upon verified application may issue ex parte an order directing that a child be held in
protective custody and, if the child has not been taken into custody, an order directing that
the child be taken into custody. The application shall state:

      (1) The applicant's belief that the child is a child in need of care and is likely to sustain
harm if not immediately afforded protective custody; and

      (2) the specific facts which are relied upon to support the belief.

      (b)  (1) The order of protective custody may be issued only after the court has deter-
mined there is probable cause to believe the allegations in the application are true. The
order shall remain in effect until the temporary custody hearing provided for in K.S.A. 38-
1543 and amendments thereto, unless earlier rescinded by the court.

      (2) Prior to July 1, 1993, No child shall be held in protective custody for more than 72
hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, unless within the 72-hour period a
determination is made as to the necessity for temporary custody in a temporary custody
hearing. Nothing in this subsection (b)(2) shall be construed to mean that the child must
remain in protective custody for 72 hours.

      (3) On and after July 1, 1993, no child shall be held in protective custody for more than
48 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, unless within the 48-hour period
a determination is made as to the necessity for temporary custody in a temporary custody
hearing. Nothing in this subsection (b)(3) shall be construed to mean that the child must
remain in protective custody for 48 hours.

      (c) Whenever the court determines the necessity for an order of protective custody, the
court may place the child in the protective custody of: (1) A parent or other person having
custody of the child and may enter a restraining order pursuant to subsection (d); (2) a
person, other than the parent or other person having custody, who shall not be required to
be licensed under article 5 of chapter 65 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated; (3) a youth
residential facility; or (4) the secretary. When the child is placed in the protective custody
of the secretary, the secretary shall have the discretionary authority to place the child with
a parent or to make other suitable placement for the child. When circumstances require, a
child in protective custody may be placed in a juvenile detention facility or other secure
facility pursuant to an order of protective custody for not to exceed 24 hours, excluding
Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays.

      (d) The order of protective custody shall be served on the child's parents and any other
person having legal custody of the child. The order shall prohibit all parties from removing
the child from the court's jurisdiction without the court's permission.

      (e) If the court issues an order of protective custody, the court may also enter an order
restraining any alleged perpetrator of physical, sexual, mental or emotional abuse of the
child from residing in the child's home; visiting, contacting, harassing or intimidating the
child; or attempting to visit, contact, harass or intimidate the child. Such restraining order
shall be served on any alleged perpetrator to whom the order is directed.

      (f) The court shall not enter an order removing a child from the custody of a parent
pursuant to this section unless the court first finds from evidence presented by the petitioner
that reasonable efforts have been made to prevent or eliminate the need for removal of the
child or that an emergency exists which threatens the safety of the child and requires the
immediate removal of the child. Such findings shall be included in any order entered by
the court.

      Sec.  7. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1543 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1543. (a)
Upon notice and hearing, the court may issue an order directing who shall have temporary
custody and may modify the order during the pendency of the proceedings as will best serve
the child's welfare.

      (b) A hearing hereunder pursuant to this section shall be held within 48 72 hours,
excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, following a child having been taken into
protective custody.

      (c) Whenever it is determined that a temporary custody hearing is required, the court
shall immediately set the time and place for the hearing. Notice of a temporary custody
hearing shall be in substantially the following form:

      (Title) 
          (f) The court may enter an order of temporary custody after determining that: (1) The
child is dangerous to self or to others; (2) the child is not likely to be available within the
jurisdiction of the court for future proceedings; or (3) the health or welfare of the child may
be endangered without further care.

      (g) Whenever the court determines the necessity for an order of temporary custody the
court may place the child in the temporary custody of: (1) A parent or other person having
custody of the child and may enter a restraining order pursuant to subsection (h); (2) a
person, other than the parent or other person having custody, who shall not be required to
be licensed under article 5 of chapter 65 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated; (3) a youth
residential facility; or (4) the secretary. When the child is placed in the temporary custody
of the secretary, the secretary shall have the discretionary authority to place the child with
a parent or to make other suitable placement for the child. When circumstances require, a
child may be placed in a juvenile detention facility or other secure facility, but the total
amount of time that the child may be held in such facility under this section and K.S.A. 38-
1542 and amendments thereto shall not exceed 24 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and
legal holidays. The order of temporary custody shall remain in effect until modified or
rescinded by the court or a disposition order is entered but not exceeding 60 days, unless
good cause is shown and stated on the record.

      (h) If the court issues an order of temporary custody, the court may enter an order
restraining any alleged perpetrator of physical, sexual, mental or emotional abuse of the
child from residing in the child's home; visiting, contacting, harassing or intimidating the
child; or attempting to visit, contact, harass or intimidate the child.

      (i) The court shall not enter an order removing a child from the custody of a parent
pursuant to this section unless the court first finds from evidence presented by the petitioner
that reasonable efforts have been made to prevent or eliminate the need for removal of the
child or that an emergency exists which threatens the safety of the child and requires the
immediate removal of the child. Such findings shall be included in any order entered by
the court.

      Sec.  8. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1562 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1562. (a)
At any time after a child has been adjudicated to be a child in need of care and prior to
disposition, the judge shall permit any interested parties, and any persons required to be
notified pursuant to subsection (b), to be heard as to proposals for appropriate disposition
of the case.

      (b) Before entering an order placing the child in the custody of a person other than the
child's parent, the court shall require notice of the time and place of the hearing to be given
to all the child's grandparents at their last known addresses or, if no grandparent is living
or if no living grandparent's address is known, to the closest relative of each of the child's
parents whose address is known, and to the foster parent, preadoptive parent or relative
providing care. Such notice shall be given by restricted mail not less than 10 business days
before the hearing and shall state that the person receiving the notice shall have an oppor-
tunity to be heard at the hearing. The provisions of this subsection shall not require addi-
tional notice to any person otherwise receiving notice of the hearing pursuant to K.S.A. 38-
1536 and amendments thereto. Individuals receiving notice pursuant to this subsection shall
not be made a party to the action solely on the basis of this notice and opportunity to be
heard.

      (c) Prior to entering an order of disposition, the court shall give consideration to the
child's physical, mental and emotional condition; the child's need for assistance; the manner
in which the parent participated in the abuse, neglect or abandonment of the child; any
relevant information from the intake and assessment process; and the evidence received at
the dispositional hearing. In determining when reunification is a viable alternative, the court
shall specifically consider whether the parent has been found by a court to have: (1) Com-
mitted murder in the first degree, K.S.A. 21-3401 and amendments thereto, murder in the
second degree, K.S.A. 21-3402 and amendments thereto, capital murder, K.S.A. 21-3439
and amendments thereto, voluntary manslaughter, K.S.A. 21-3403 and amendments thereto
or violated a law of another state which prohibits such murder or manslaughter of a child;
(2) aided or abetted, attempted, conspired or solicited to commit such murder or voluntary
manslaughter of a child as provided in subsection (c)(1); (3) committed a felony battery that
resulted in bodily injury to the child or another child; (4) subjected the child or another
child to aggravated circumstances as defined in subsection (x) of K.S.A. 38-1502 and amend-
ments thereto; (5) parental rights of the parent to another child have been terminated
involuntarily; or (6) the child has been in extended out of home placement as defined in
subsection (z) of K.S.A. 38-1502 and amendments thereto. If reintegration is not a viable
alternative, the court shall consider whether a compelling reason has been documented in
the case plan to find neither adoption nor permanent guardianship are in the best interests
of the child, the child is in a stable placement with a relative, or services set out in the case
plan necessary for the safe return of the child have been made available to the parent with
whom reintegration is planned. If reintegration is not a viable alternative and either adoption
or permanent guardianship might be in the best interests of the child, the county or district
attorney or the county or district attorney's designee shall file a motion to terminate parental
rights or permanent guardianship within 30 days and the court shall set a hearing on such
motion within 90 days of the filing of such motion. No such hearing is required when the
parents voluntarily relinquish parental rights or agree to appointment of a permanent
guardian.

      Sec.  9. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1565 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1565. (a)
If a child is placed outside the child's home and no plan is made a part of the record of the
dispositional hearing, a written plan shall be prepared which provides for reintegration of
the child into the child's family or, if reintegration is not a viable alternative, for other
placement of the child. Reintegration may not be a viable alternative when the: (1) Parent
has been found by a court to have committed murder in the first degree, K.S.A. 21-3401
and amendments thereto, murder in the second degree, K.S.A. 21-3402 and amendments
thereto, capital murder, K.S.A. 21-3439 and amendments thereto, voluntary manslaughter,
K.S.A. 21-3403 and amendments thereto or violated a law of another state which prohibits
such murder or manslaughter of a child; (2) parent aided or abetted, attempted, conspired
or solicited to commit such murder or voluntary manslaughter of a child as provided in
subsection (a)(1); (3) parent committed a felony battery that resulted in bodily injury to the
child or another child; (4) parent has subjected the child or another child to aggravated
circumstances as defined in subsection (x) of K.S.A. 38-1502, and amendments thereto; (5)
parental rights of the parent to another child have been terminated involuntarily; or (6) the
child has been in extended out of home placement as defined in subsection (z) of K.S.A.
38-1502 and amendments thereto. If the goal is reintegration into the family, the plan shall
include measurable objectives and time schedules for reintegration. The plan shall be sub-
mitted to the court not later than 30 days after the dispositional order is entered. If the
child is placed in the custody of the secretary, the plan shall be prepared and submitted by
the secretary. If the child is placed in the custody of a facility or person other than the
secretary, the plan shall be prepared and submitted by a court services officer.

      (b) A court services officer or, if the child is in the secretary's custody, the secretary
shall submit to the court, at least every six months, a written report of the progress being
made toward the goals of the plan submitted pursuant to subsection (a). If the child is placed
in foster care, the foster parent or parents shall submit to the court, at least every six months,
a report in regard to the child's adjustment, progress and condition. The department of
social and rehabilitation services shall notify the foster parent or parents of the foster parent's
or parent's duty to submit such report, on a form provided by the department of social and
rehabilitation services, at least two weeks prior to the date when the report is due, and the
name of the judge and the address of the court to which the report is to be submitted. Such
report shall be confidential and shall only be reviewed by the court and the child's guardian
ad litem. The court shall review the progress being made toward the goals of the plan and
the foster parent report and, if the court determines that progress is inadequate or that the
plan is no longer viable, the court shall hold a hearing pursuant to subsection (c). If the
secretary has custody of the child, such hearing shall be held no more than 12 months after
the child is placed outside the child's home and at least every 12 months thereafter. For
children in the custody of the secretary prior to July 1, 1998, within 30 days of receiving a
request from the secretary, a permanency hearing shall be held. If the goal of the plan
submitted pursuant to subsection (a) is reintegration into the family and the court deter-
mines after 12 months from the time such plan is first submitted that progress is inadequate,
the court shall hold a hearing pursuant to subsection (c). Nothing in this subsection shall
be interpreted to prohibit termination of parental rights prior to the expiration of 12 months.

      (c) Whenever a hearing is required under subsection (b), the court shall notify all in-
terested parties and the foster parents, preadoptive parents or relatives providing care for
the child and hold a hearing. Individuals receiving notice pursuant to this subsection shall
not be made a party to the action solely on the basis of this notice and opportunity to be
heard. After providing the interested parties, foster parents, preadoptive parents or relatives
providing care for the child an opportunity to be heard, the court shall determine whether
the child's needs are being adequately met and whether reintegration continues to be a
viable alternative. If the court finds reintegration is no longer a viable alternative, the court
shall consider whether the child is in a stable placement with a relative, services set out in
the case plan necessary for the safe return of the child have been made available to the
parent with whom reintegration is planned or compelling reasons are documented in the
case plan to support a finding that neither adoption nor permanent guardianship are in the
child's best interest. If reintegration is not a viable alternative and either adoption or per-
manent guardianship might be in the best interests of the child, the county or district
attorney or the county or district attorney's designee shall file a motion to terminate parental
rights or for permanent guardianship within 30 days and the court shall set a hearing on
such motion within 90 days of the filing of such motion. When the court finds reintegration
continues to be a viable alternative, the court may rescind any of its prior dispositional
orders and enter any dispositional order authorized by this code or may order that a new
plan for the reintegration be prepared and submitted to the court. No such hearing is
required when the parents voluntarily relinquish parental rights or agree to appointment of
a permanent guardian.

      Sec.  10. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1583 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1583. (a)
When the child has been adjudicated to be a child in need of care, the court may terminate
parental rights when the court finds by clear and convincing evidence that the parent is
unfit by reason of conduct or condition which renders the parent unable to care properly
for a child and the conduct or condition is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.

      (b) In making a determination hereunder the court shall consider, but is not limited to,
the following, if applicable:

      (1) Emotional illness, mental illness, mental deficiency or physical disability of the par-
ent, of such duration or nature as to render the parent unlikely to care for the ongoing
physical, mental and emotional needs of the child;

      (2) conduct toward a child of a physically, emotionally or sexually cruel or abusive
nature;

      (3) excessive use of intoxicating liquors or narcotic or dangerous drugs;

      (4) physical, mental or emotional neglect of the child;

      (5) conviction of a felony and imprisonment;

      (6) unexplained injury or death of another child or stepchild of the parent;

      (7) reasonable efforts by appropriate public or private child caring agencies have been
unable to rehabilitate the family; and

      (8) lack of effort on the part of the parent to adjust the parent's circumstances, conduct
or conditions to meet the needs of the child.

      (c) In addition to the foregoing, when a child is not in the physical custody of a parent,
the court, in proceedings concerning the termination of parental rights, shall also consider,
but is not limited to the following:

      (1) Failure to assure care of the child in the parental home when able to do so;

      (2) failure to maintain regular visitation, contact or communication with the child or
with the custodian of the child;

      (3) failure to carry out a reasonable plan approved by the court directed toward the
integration of the child into the parental home; and

      (4) failure to pay a reasonable portion of the cost of substitute physical care and main-
tenance based on ability to pay.

      In making the above determination, the court may disregard incidental visitations, con-
tacts, communications or contributions.

      (d) The rights of the parents may be terminated as provided in this section if the court
finds that the parents have abandoned the child or the child was left under such circum-
stances that the identity of the parents is unknown and cannot be ascertained, despite
diligent searching, and the parents have not come forward to claim the child within three
months after the child is found.

      (e) The existence of any one of the above standing alone may, but does not necessarily,
establish grounds for termination of parental rights. The determination shall be based on
an evaluation of all factors which are applicable. In considering any of the above factors for
terminating the rights of a parent, the court shall give primary consideration to the physical,
mental or emotional condition and needs of the child. If presented to the court and subject
to the provisions of K.S.A. 60-419, and amendments thereto, the court shall consider as
evidence testimony from a person licensed to practice medicine and surgery, a licensed
psychologist or a licensed social worker expressing an opinion relating to the physical, mental
or emotional condition and needs of the child. The court shall consider any such testimony
only if the licensed professional providing such testimony is subject to cross-examination.

      (f) A termination of parental rights under the Kansas code for care of children shall not
terminate the right of the child to inherit from or through the parent. Upon such termi-
nation, all the rights of birth parents to such child, including their right to inherit from or
through such child, shall cease.

      (g) If, after finding the parent unfit, the court determines a compelling reason why it is
not in the best interests of the child to terminate parental rights or upon agreement of the
parents, the court may award permanent guardianship to an individual providing care for
the child, a relative or other person with whom the child has a close emotional attachment.
Prior to awarding permanent guardianship, the court shall receive and consider an assess-
ment as provided in K.S.A. 59-2132 and amendments thereto of any potential permanent
guardian. Upon appointment of a permanent guardian, the court shall enter an order dis-
charging the child from the court's jurisdiction.

      (h) If a parent is convicted of an offense as provided in subsection (7) of K.S.A. 38-1585
and amendments thereto or is adjudicated a juvenile offender because of an act which if
committed by an adult would be an offense as provided in subsection (7) of K.S.A. 38-1585
and amendments thereto, and if the victim was the other parent of a child, the court may
disregard such convicted or adjudicated parent's opinions or wishes in regard to the place-
ment of such child.

      Sec.  11. K.S.A. 1998 Supp. 38-1602 is hereby amended to read as follows: 38-1602. As

requesting termination of parental rights or the appointment of a permanent guardian pur-
suant to the Kansas code for care of children. If the juvenile offender is placed in foster

When a juvenile offender has satisfactorily completed such offender's term of incarceration

the person in charge of the juvenile correctional facility shall have authority to release the
juvenile offender under appropriate conditions and for a specified period of time. Prior to
release from a juvenile correctional facility, the commissioner shall consider any recommen-
dations made by the juvenile offender's juvenile community corrections officer.

      (b) At least 15 days prior to releasing a juvenile offender as provided in subsection (a),
the person in charge of the juvenile correctional facility shall notify the committing court
of the date and conditions upon which it is proposed the juvenile offender is to be released.

      (c) Upon receipt of the notice required by subsection (b), the court shall review the
proposed conditions of release and may recommend modifications or additions to the con-
ditions.

      (d) If, during the conditional release, the juvenile offender is not returning to the county
from which committed, the person in charge of the juvenile correctional facility shall also
give notice to the court of the county in which the juvenile offender is to be residing.

      (e) To assure compliance with conditions of release from a juvenile correctional facility,
the commissioner shall have the authority to prescribe the manner in which compliance
with the conditions shall be supervised. When requested by the commissioner, the appro-
priate court may assist in supervising compliance with the conditions of release during the
term of the conditional release. The commissioner may require the parents or guardians of
the juvenile offender to cooperate and participate with the conditions of release.

      (f) The juvenile justice authority shall notify at least 45 days prior to the discharge of
the juvenile offender the county or district attorney of the county where the offender was
adjudicated a juvenile offender of the release of such juvenile offender, if such juvenile
offender's offense would have constituted a class A, B or C felony before July 1, 1993, or
an off-grid felony, a nondrug crime ranked at severity level 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 or a drug crime
ranked at severity level 1, 2 or 3, on or after July 1, 1993, if committed by an adult. The
county or district attorney shall give written notice at least 30 days prior to the release of

the school district in which the juvenile offender will be residing if the juvenile is still
required to attend a secondary school. Failure to notify pursuant to this section shall not be
a reason to postpone a release. Nothing in this section shall create a cause of action against
the state or county or an employee of the state or county acting within the scope of the
employee's employment as a result of the failure to notify pursuant to this section.

      (g) Conditional release programs shall include, but not be limited to, the treatment
options of aftercare services.

Order authorizing prosecution as an adult or extended jurisdiction juvenile prosecution. (1)
Unless the respondent has consented to the order, an appeal may be taken by a respondent
from an order authorizing prosecution as an adult. The appeal shall be taken only after
conviction and in the same manner as other criminal appeals, except that (A) where the
criminal prosecution has resulted in a judgment of conviction upon a plea of guilty or nolo
contendere, an appeal may be taken from the order authorizing prosecution pursuant to
K.S.A. 38-1636, and amendments thereto, notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a)
of K.S.A. 22-3602 and amendments thereto, and (B) if the criminal prosecution results in
an acquittal, an appeal may nevertheless be taken from the order authorizing prosecution
pursuant to K.S.A. 38-1636, and amendments thereto, if the order provides that it attaches
to future acts by the respondent as authorized by subsection (h) of K.S.A. 38-1636, and
amendments thereto.

      (2) If on appeal the order authorizing prosecution as an adult is reversed but the finding
of guilty is affirmed or the conviction was based on a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, the
respondent shall be deemed adjudicated to be a juvenile offender. On remand the district
court shall proceed with sentencing.

      (b) Orders of adjudgment and sentencing. An appeal may be taken by a respondent from
an order of such respondent being adjudged to be a juvenile offender or sentencing, or
both. The appeal shall be taken after, but within 10 days of, the entry of the sentence.

      (c) A departure sentence is subject to appeal by the defendant. The appeal shall be to
the appellate courts in accordance with rules adopted by the supreme court.

      (1) Pending review of the sentence, the sentencing court or the appellate court may order
the defendant confined or placed on conditional release, including bond.

      (2) On appeal from a judgment or conviction entered for an offense committed on or
after July 1, 1999, the appellate court shall not review:

      (A) Any sentence that is within the presumptive sentence for the crime; or

      (B) any sentence resulting from an agreement between the state and the defendant which
the sentencing court approves on the record.

      (3) In any appeal from a judgment of conviction imposing a sentence that departs from
the presumptive sentence, sentence review shall be limited to whether the sentencing court's
findings of fact and reasons justifying a departure:

      (A) Are supported by the evidence in the record; and

      (B) constitute substantial and compelling reasons for departure.

      (4) In any appeal, the appellate court may review a claim that:

      (A) A sentence that departs from the presumptive sentence resulted from partiality,
prejudice, oppression or corrupt motive;

      (B) the sentencing court erred in either including or excluding recognition of prior con-
victions or adjudications; or

      (C) the sentencing court erred in ranking the crime severity level of the current crime
or in determining the appropriate classification of a prior conviction or juvenile adjudication
for criminal history purposes.

      (5) The appellate court may reverse or affirm the sentence. If the appellate court con-
cludes that the trial court's factual findings are not supported by evidence in the record or
do not establish substantial and compelling reasons for a departure, it shall remand the case
to the trial court for resentencing.

      (6) The appellate court shall issue a written opinion whenever the judgment of the sen-
tencing court is reversed. The court may issue a written opinion in any other case when it
is believed that a written opinion will provide guidance to sentencing judges and others in
implementing the placement. The appellate courts may provide by rule for summary dis-
position of cases arising under this section when no substantial question is presented by the
appeal.

      (7) A review under summary disposition shall be made solely upon the record that was
before the sentencing court. Written briefs shall not be required unless ordered by the ap-
pellate court and the review and decision shall be made in an expedited manner according
to rules adopted by the supreme court.

      (c) (d) Priority. Appeals under this section shall have priority over other cases except
those having statutory priority.'';
