There is hereby established an advisory committee to the Kansas commission on interstate cooperation. Such committee shall be composed of five members. Three of such members shall be members of the Kansas bar to be appointed by the commission with the advice of the president of the bar association of the state of Kansas and the incumbency of each such member of the committee shall extend until the first day of February of the odd-numbered year following appointment and thereafter until a successor is appointed. The other two members shall be the chairpersons of the house and senate standing committees on judiciary, except that each such chairperson may appoint another member of the committee on judiciary of the same house who is an attorney to serve as a member in lieu of such chairperson for such member's then current term as a legislator. The members of such committee shall be the official representatives or delegates of the state of Kansas to the national conference of commissioners on uniform state laws. Such committee shall account to and advise with the Kansas commission on interstate cooperation and it shall be its duty to investigate and consider the advisability or uniformity of the laws of the several states and to make recommendations on all subjects where uniformity may be desirable and practical. Such committee shall report to the Kansas commission on interstate cooperation from time to time on its activities and make such recommendations as it deems advisable for appropriate legislation. Members of the committee shall be paid compensation and travel expenses and subsistence expenses or allowances for attendance at meetings of the committee as authorized by K.S.A. 75-3212. Any person who by reason of membership on such committee has been accredited by the national conference of commissioners on uniform state laws as a life member of that organization shall be an associate member of the committee and shall receive the same travel expenses and subsistence expenses for attendance at meetings as regular members of the committee, but shall receive no per diem compensation. Whenever any regular member of the committee shall be so accredited by the national conference of commissioners on uniform state laws, such member shall thereupon become an associate member and a vacancy shall exist in the regular membership of the committee. Such vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the commission with the advice of the president of the bar association of the state of Kansas. All amounts authorized under this section shall be paid by the Kansas commission on interstate cooperation.
