48-942.Costs of emergency management plans and programs; fees. (a) Persons engaged in the production of electricity through the utilization of nuclear energy at a nuclear facility shall pay fees to the adjutant general to cover the costs incurred by state and local government agencies in establishing and maintaining appropriate emergency management plans and programs for an accident at a nuclear facility, including the costs of administering this act.

(b) Fees collected under the provisions of this act shall be used exclusively to fund those state and local government activities approved as necessary by the adjutant general to develop, maintain and implement appropriate plans and programs necessary for management for an accident at a nuclear facility and for administration of this act.

(c) State agencies and local governments of Kansas incurring expenses attributable to developing and maintaining plans and programs to meet responsibilities in the event of an accident at a nuclear facility may apply to the adjutant general for payment for those expenses. Upon approval by the adjutant general of emergency management budgets submitted by state and local government agencies therefor, the adjutant general shall pay or reimburse such expenses or may disburse moneys in advance of such expenses from fees collected pursuant to this act.

(d) The adjutant general shall remit all moneys received from fees fixed and collected pursuant to this act to the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the nuclear safety emergency management fee fund which is hereby established in the state treasury. The adjutant general shall administer the nuclear safety emergency management fee fund. All expenditures from the nuclear safety emergency management fee fund shall be in accordance with the provisions of appropriation acts. All moneys in the nuclear safety emergency preparedness fee fund and all liabilities of such fund on the day preceding the effective date of this act shall be transferred to the nuclear safety emergency management fee fund. The nuclear safety emergency preparedness fee fund is hereby abolished.

(e) When the total of all fees collected under this act during any fiscal year exceeds the total expenditures from the nuclear safety emergency management fee fund under this act from appropriations for that fiscal year, the amount of receipts that exceeds such expenditures shall be credited to the persons who were assessed such fees for that fiscal year, and such amount shall be credited against the fees to be collected under this act for the ensuing fiscal year. Each such person shall receive as a credit that amount of the excess which corresponds proportionately to the amount of fees the person paid with respect to all fees collected under this act in the fiscal year that produced the excess.
