Such officers shall also be entitled to mileage allowances at the rate authorized by K.S.A. 75-3203a or any amendments thereto for each mile actually traveled by the usual route in going to and returning from the place of any such out-of-state meetings if private conveyance is used, or actual transportation cost if private conveyance is not used.

No legislator shall receive subsistence expenses or allowances under this section for attendance at any in-state meeting during any legislative session or for which subsistence expenses or allowances are authorized under the provisions of K.S.A. 46-137e. The total of both subsistence expenses and allowances allowed under this section during a legislative session and subsistence allowances allowed under K.S.A. 46-137a during such session shall be limited to the amount equal to the combined total actual subsistence expenses incurred in Topeka and in out-of-state travel. The provisions of the third sentence of K.S.A. 75-4606 shall not apply to any legislator, and any legislator may use a privately owned motor vehicle and receive reimbursement for mileage at the rate provided in K.S.A. 75-3203a and amendments thereto whether traveling under authority of such statute or this act.
