(b) Any person appointed pursuant to this section may purchase the licenses, permits, stamps and other issues for cash from the county clerk, if appointed by the clerk, or from the secretary, if appointed by the secretary, or, in lieu thereof, such person shall be required to execute a special surety bond to the state of Kansas conditioned on payment of all moneys received from fees for licenses, permits, stamps and other issues of the department and on payment of the maximum value for all licenses, permits, stamps and issues of the department not settled for and not returned to the county clerk or secretary appointing such person.

The bond shall be in an amount fixed by the county clerk, if the person is appointed by the clerk, or in an amount fixed by the secretary, if the person is appointed by the secretary, but such amount shall not be less than the maximum amount which can be realized from the sale of the issues of the department in such person's possession. The bond shall be filed in the office of the county treasurer, if the person is appointed by the county clerk, or with the secretary, if the person is appointed by the secretary.

Persons electing not to file a bond shall become agents immediately upon their appointment.

(d) No agent appointed pursuant to this section shall offer for sale a license, permit, stamp or other issue of the department for an amount less than the fee prescribed pursuant to law or rules and regulations of the secretary for such issue.

(e) All fees collected by the bonded agent for licenses, permits, stamps and other issues of the department shall be paid to the county clerk, if the agent is appointed by the county clerk, or to the secretary, if the agent is appointed by the secretary, at such times and places as the county clerk or secretary, as appropriate, designates, but settlement shall be made at least three days before the expiration date of the issues in the possession of the agent. Upon receipt of such fees by the county clerk, the clerk shall remit the entire amount thereof to the county treasurer in the manner provided in K.S.A. 32-984 for disposition in the manner provided for in that section. Upon receipt of such fees by the secretary, the fees shall be disposed of as provided in K.S.A. 32-990, 32-991 and 32-993. All unsold issues of the department shall be returned to the county clerk, if the agent is appointed by the clerk, or to the secretary, if the agent is appointed by the secretary.
