The total amount shall include the salaries of members and employees and all other lawful expenditures of the commission and the board, including all expenditures in connection with investigations or appraisals made under the provisions of K.S.A. 66-1502, and amendments thereto, except that there shall not be included in such total amount of expenditures for the purpose of this section the expenditures during such period of time which are otherwise provided for by fees and assessments made under other existing laws for the regulation of motor carriers or for administering the oil proration and the oil and gas conservation laws.

(2) From the amount determined under paragraph (1) of this subsection, the commission shall deduct (A) all amounts collected under K.S.A. 66-1502, and amendments thereto, during such period of time and (B) the amounts of all fees collected during such period of time under the provisions of subsection (b)(1) of K.S.A. 66-1a01, and amendments thereto.
