66-2203. Filing of petition with commission to establish or change a GSRS rate schedule; recovery of certain costs; procedure. (a) Notwithstanding any other provisions of chapter 66 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, beginning July 1, 2006, a natural gas public utility providing gas service may file a petition and proposed rate schedules with the commission to establish or change GSRS rate schedules that will allow for the adjustment of the natural gas public utility's rates and charges to provide for the recovery of costs for eligible infrastructure system replacements. The commission may not approve a GSRS to the extent it would produce total annualized GSRS revenues below the lesser of $1,000,000 or ½% of the natural gas public utility's base revenue level approved by the commission in the natural gas public utility's most recent general rate proceeding. The commission may not approve a GSRS to the extent it would produce total annualized GSRS revenues exceeding 10% of the natural gas public utility's base revenue level approved by the commission in the natural gas public utility's most recent general rate proceeding. A GSRS and any future changes thereto shall be calculated and implemented in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 66-2202 through 66-2204, and amendments thereto. GSRS revenues shall be subject to a refund based upon a finding and order of the commission to the extent provided in subsections (e) and (h) of K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 66-2204, and amendments thereto.

(b) The commission shall not approve a GSRS for any natural gas public utility that has not had a general rate proceeding decided or dismissed by issuance of a commission order within the past 60 months, unless the natural gas public utility has filed for or is the subject of a new general rate proceeding.

(c) In no event shall a natural gas public utility collect a GSRS for a period exceeding 60 months unless the natural gas public utility has filed for or is the subject of a new general rate proceeding; except that the GSRS may be collected until the effective date of new rate schedules established as a result of the new general rate proceeding, or until the subject general rate proceeding is otherwise decided or dismissed by issuance of a commission order without new rates being established.

(d) Notwithstanding the 60-month filing deadlines in subsections (b) and (c), upon motion by a natural gas public utility, the commission may extend the 60-month deadline in subsections (b) and (c) for a period of up to 12 months as the commission determines reasonable or necessary.
