(b) The commission shall accept applications for and may issue licenses to any person, organization, corporation, partnership, limited liability company or association desiring to promote regulated sports contests if such person holds a promoter's license from an organization which has been in existence and has held meetings at regular intervals during the entire year immediately preceding the granting of the license. The commission shall accept applications and may issue licenses to referees, judges, physicians, managers, contestants, timekeepers, seconds, promoters, announcers and matchmakers for regulated sports contests. A license fee of not less than $20 shall accompany any application for licensure. Unless revoked for cause, all licenses issued under this subsection and all renewals thereof shall expire on June 30 of the year succeeding the year in which they were issued. Licenses shall be renewable from year to year upon the filing of a renewal application prior to the expiration of each such license and payment of the fee therefor.

(c) The commission shall fix and collect a fee assessed against the gross receipts of every regulated sports contest held. The fee shall be fixed in an amount which, together with all other revenues of the commission, is sufficient to pay the cost of administering and enforcing the provisions of this act, but not to exceed 5%.

(d) The commission shall fix and collect a fee assessed upon the gross revenues received by a promoter and by any media network that televises a regulated sports contest held including, but not limited to, pay-per-view or internet broadcast. The fee shall be fixed in an amount which, together with all other revenues of the commission, is sufficient to pay the cost of administering and enforcing the provisions of this act, but not to exceed 2%.

(f) The commission shall assist promoters in developing marketing strategies for contests.

(g) For the purpose of ascertaining compliance with any of the provisions of this act or any rules and regulations adopted pursuant thereto, the commission may request a court to issue subpoenas to compel access to or for the production of any books, papers, records or memoranda in the custody or control of any licensee or officer, member, employee or agent of any licensee, or to compel the appearance of any licensee or officer, member, employee or agent of any licensee, or of any person subject to the provisions of this act. Subpoenas issued pursuant to this subsection may be served upon individuals and corporations in the same manner provided in K.S.A. 60-304, and amendments thereto, for the service of process by any officer authorized to serve subpoenas in civil actions or by the commission or an agent or representative designated by the commission. In the case of the refusal of any person to comply with any such subpoena, the commission may make application to the district court of any county where such books, papers, records, memoranda or person is located for an order to comply.
