65-16,103.Same; no cost charged to pharmacies; funding of program. (a) The cost of establishing and maintaining the statewide electronic logging system shall be borne by the state, other non-state units of government, private entities, or others. Pharmacies shall not be required to bear the costs associated with establishing and maintaining the electronic logging system, through any additional charges, whether statewide, regional, county-wide or otherwise as provided in this section.

(b) In the event that funding for a statewide program is not available, the board may implement the program on a non-statewide basis, whether such program is funded regionally or county-wide or otherwise. The board shall, by rules and regulations, prescribe that such regional or non-statewide program comply with requirements applicable to a statewide program, including that such non-state governmental units or regional programs may not utilize different vendors. Any requirements of this act shall only be applicable to pharmacies within such units of government or regions, if a regional program is established, and all other pharmacies in the state shall be exempt from requirements for the electronic logging system required pursuant to this act.

(c) If the state, other non-state units of government, private entities or others are unable to bear the costs of establishing and maintaining the electronic logging system, pharmacies within the state, or in the case of regional or other non-statewide programs, pharmacies within those program areas shall be relieved of any obligation to comply with the statewide electronic logging system program pursuant to this act. Such pharmacies shall still be subject to the requirements of maintaining a log as provided in subsection (k) of K.S.A. 65-1643, and amendments thereto.

(d) The board shall not impose any additional charges for the establishment or maintenance of the program for the recording of methamphetamine precursors on a pharmacy. The board shall not charge any fees for the transmission of data to the program database or for the receipt of information from the database.

(e) The state board of pharmacy may receive and expend, or supervise the expenditure of, any donation, gift, grant or bequest made to the board for furthering any phase of the statewide electronic logging system program.
