(a) On and after September 1, 1997, the department of agriculture shall succeed to whatever right, title or interest the Kansas state grain inspection department has acquired in any property in this state concerning grain inspection, including equipment and supplies from the protein laboratories and inspection laboratories. The director of Kansas correctional industries, or the director's designee, pursuant to the director's duties as operator of the state surplus property program, shall place a fair market value on such property. Upon receipt of such fair market value, the secretary shall offer for sale, at the fair market value, all property acquired in such transfer in a single lot to the entity that has been designated by the grain inspection, packers and stockyards administration as the official agency pursuant to the United States grain standards act. If such designated agency declines to purchase such property, the secretary shall offer for sale such property to the general public. All revenue received pursuant to such sale shall be deposited in the state treasury and credited to the grain inspection fee fund.

(b) On September 1, 1997, the grain inspection fee fund and all records of the grain inspection fee fund are hereby transferred to the secretary of agriculture for the purposes of this section.
