44-716a.Special employment security fund; creation; authorized expenditures and transfers. (a) There is hereby created in the state treasury a special fund to be known as the special employment security fund. All interest and penalties collected under the provisions of the Kansas employment security law shall be paid into this fund. No such moneys shall be expended or available for expenditure in any manner which would permit their substitution for, or a corresponding reduction in, federal funds which in the absence of such moneys would be available to finance expenditures for the administration of the employment security law. Nothing in this section shall prevent such moneys from being used as a revolving fund, to cover expenditures, necessary and proper under the law, for which federal funds have been duly requested but not yet received, subject to the charging of such expenditures against such funds when received. Except as otherwise authorized by this section or by appropriations act, the moneys in this fund may be used by the secretary of labor only for the payment of costs of administration which are found not to have been properly and validly chargeable against federal grants, or other funds, received for or in the employment security administration fund. In addition to the other purposes for which expenditures may be made from the special employment security fund as authorized by this section or by appropriations act, moneys from this fund may be used to finance activities as deemed necessary by the secretary of labor for the efficient operation of activities under or the administration of the employment security law, except that (1) no moneys shall be used for such purposes unless the secretary has determined that no other funds are available or can be properly used to finance expenditures for such purposes, and (2) expenditures during any fiscal year for purposes authorized under this section shall not exceed $110,000 except upon approval of the state finance council acting on this matter which is hereby characterized as a matter of legislative delegation and subject to the guidelines prescribed by subsection (c) of K.S.A. 75-3711c, and amendments thereto. No expenditures of this fund shall be made except on written authorization by the governor and the secretary of labor.

(b) The director of accounts and reports is hereby directed to draw warrants upon the state treasurer against the money in the special employment security fund for the use and purposes authorized under this section upon vouchers, approved by the secretary of labor, and accompanied by the written authorization of the governor and the secretary of labor. The moneys in this fund are hereby specifically made available to replace, within a reasonable time, any moneys received by this state pursuant to section 302 of the federal social security act, as amended, which, because of any action or contingency, have been lost or have been expended for purposes other than, or in amounts in excess of, those necessary for the proper administration of the employment security law. The moneys in this fund shall be continuously available to the secretary of labor for expenditure in accordance with the provisions of this section and shall not lapse at any time or be transferred to any other fund, except as otherwise authorized in subsection (c) or subsection (d).

(c) In addition to expenditures authorized by this section, the director of accounts and reports may transfer funds from the special employment security fund to the accounting services recovery fund as provided in K.S.A. 75-3728b and 75-6210, and amendments thereto.

(d) In addition to expenditures authorized by this section, the director of accounts and reports is directed and authorized to transfer funds from the special employment security fund to the department of labor federal indirect cost offset fund on July 1 of each year in the amount contained in appropriation bills to be expended from the federal indirect cost offset fund for that fiscal year.

(e) In addition to expenditures authorized by this section, the director of accounts and reports is directed and authorized to transfer funds from the special employment security fund to the clearing account of the employment security fund to be expended in the payment of interest due employers from erroneously collected contributions or benefit cost payments as provided in subsection (h) of K.S.A. 44-717, and amendments thereto.

(f) In addition to expenditures authorized by this section, the director of accounts and reports is directed and authorized to transfer funds from the special employment security fund to the clearing account of the employment security fund to be expended in the payment of fees assessed for the electronic payments or credit card payments of contributions, benefit cost payments or reimbursing payments in lieu of contributions from employers.
