75-4917.Basic service grants; formula for determination of amounts. (a) For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1997, two basic service grant fund amounts shall be established from the grant pools under subsection (a) of K.S.A. 75-4916 and amendments thereto for basic service grants as follows: A television basic service grant fund amount consisting of 85% of the grant pool for television, and a radio basic service grant fund amount consisting of 85% of the grant pool for radio. Each such basic service grant fund amount for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1997, shall be divided into as many units as necessary to provide basic service grants to each eligible station as follows:

(1) If the population density within an eligible station's service area, as determined by the average population density of all counties within that area, is 50% or more of the mean population density of the state, that station shall receive a basic service grant of five units;

(2) if the average population density within an eligible station's service area, as determined by the mean population density of all counties within that service area, is less than 50% of the mean population density of the state, that station shall receive a basic service grant of 11 units; and

(3) KCPT-TV shall receive a basic service grant of four units.

(b) For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1998, and for each fiscal year thereafter, the grant pool for basic service grants determined under subsection (b)(2) of K.S.A. 75-4916 and amendments thereto shall be allocated among all stations as follows:

(1) Basic service grant units shall be awarded to each station for a fiscal year as follows:

(B) a public radio station shall receive one basic service unit for a main radio broadcast station;

(F) a public radio station shall not receive any basic service units for a radio translator station; and

(G) KCPT-TV public television station shall receive one basic service unit; and

(2) the basic service grant amount for a station shall be a pro rata share of the grant pool for basic service grants; this share shall bear the same proportion to the total amount in the grant pool for basic service grants as the number of basic service grant units awarded to the station for the fiscal year bears to the total number of basic service grant units awarded to all stations for the fiscal year.

(c) The service areas of each station and the counties to be included in each service area shall be certified to the secretary of administration in the manner set forth in subsection (e) of K.S.A. 75-4924 and amendments thereto.
