20-211.Advance sheets; distribution and sale; subscription to advance sheets and permanent report; withholding opinions; removal of advance sheets from inventories upon publication of bound volume. The state law librarian shall have authority to order advance sheets of the reports of the supreme court and court of appeals to be printed for distribution and temporary use until the reports themselves are issued. Upon such order it shall be the duty of the reporter, as soon as possible after they are filed, to prepare for publication, and of the director of printing immediately thereafter to print the syllabi and decisions of the court in the same form the permanent report will bear, but upon inexpensive paper and to be bound in paper. The number of copies of each issue shall be specified in the order. When issued they shall be delivered to the state law librarian, to be distributed in the manner provided in K.S.A. 20-208 for distributing copies of the Kansas reports, except that no copies of advance sheets shall be delivered to a law library for exchange purposes. The remaining copies shall be sold at the per copy price fixed by the supreme court under this section, plus the amount fixed by the supreme court under this section for the cost of postage and handling. Said librarian may sell subscriptions to the current advance sheets and permanent report together for the subscription price fixed by the supreme court under this section, plus the amount fixed by the supreme court under this section for the cost of any postage and handling, the same to be paid in advance and if any one person, firm, association or corporation shall subscribe for two hundred (200) or more copies of any bound volume and the advance sheets thereto, the state law librarian may sell subscriptions to such persons, firm, associations and corporations to the advance sheets and permanent report together for a reduced subscription price fixed by the supreme court under this section, plus the amount fixed by the supreme court under this section for the cost of postage and handling, the same to be paid in advance. Upon order of the court any opinion may be withheld from publication in the advance sheets until such time as it may designate. The increased prices provided for in this section shall apply to current reports and advance sheets commencing with volume 224, and subscriptions for earlier volumes and advance sheets, or purchases of advance sheets of earlier volumes, shall be at the rate prescribed by this section prior to this amendment. All copies of advance sheets distributed pursuant to this section or purchased by any governmental agency or subdivision may be removed from the inventory of such office, agency or subdivision upon publication of the volume of the Kansas reports for which such advance sheets were issued. The supreme court shall fix the per copy prices, subscription prices, and reduced subscription prices for advance sheets and permanent reports sold under this section to recover the costs of printing and binding such advance sheets and permanent reports and shall fix the amount to be charged in connection with the sale and distribution of such advance sheets and permanent reports under this section to cover the costs of postage and handling applicable thereto. The supreme court shall revise all such prices from time to time as necessary for the purposes of covering or recovering such costs.
