68-2033.Contracts between secretary of transportation and authority; payments from state highway fund for turnpike projects; reimbursement of state highway fund from toll revenues; payments subject to certain prior payments. The secretary of transportation and the authority are hereby authorized and empowered to make and enter into any and all contracts and agreements, including (but without limitation) any contract or agreement for the removal or construction of any bridge or other highway facility which they may deem necessary, desirable or incidental to the financing, construction, maintenance, repair or operation of any turnpike project financed under the provisions of this act.

With respect to any turnpike project financed under the provisions of this act, the secretary is authorized and empowered to contract or agree with the authority to pay to the authority from the state highway fund, upon order or voucher of the secretary of transportation in the manner provided by law to the director of accounts and reports, in each year, such amount or amounts as shall be required in such year to make up any deficiency in the revenues received from the operation and ownership of such turnpike project in such year, over and above the cost of maintenance, repair and operation of such turnpike project incurred in such year; (i) for paying the interest on all turnpike revenue bonds or turnpike revenue refunding bonds issued by the authority in connection with such turnpike projects; (ii) for retiring such bonds by their maturity or maturities; and (iii) for paying the premium, if any, on a specified aggregate principal amount of such bonds which would be payable in such year if such principal amount of bonds were to be redeemed prior to their maturity or maturities. The amount which is required in each such year to provide for paying the interest on such bonds and for retiring such bonds by their maturity or maturities shall be determined as provided in such contract or agreement. Any such payments required to be made pursuant to such contract or agreement may be pledged or assigned by the authority in the same manner as tolls and other revenues of such turnpike project. Any such contract or agreement shall provide for reimbursement by the authority, from tolls or other revenues of such turnpike projects, to the secretary of transportation for the credit of the state highway fund, at any time or times and under such terms and conditions as may be set forth therein, of any amounts previously paid to the authority by the secretary pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph, except that if the revenues received from the operation and ownership of such turnpike project in any year, over and above the cost of maintenance, repair and operation of such turnpike project incurred in such year, shall exceed 150% of clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) above for such year, such excess must be reimbursed to the secretary, for the credit of the state highway fund, until all amounts previously paid to the authority by the secretary of transportation have been reimbursed to the secretary.

Any payments provided to be made in any year pursuant to the provisions of this section to the authority from the state highway fund shall be a lien and claim on the portion of the highway fund which is made available to the secretary of transportation by the provisions of K.S.A. 68-416, and amendments thereto, but any such payments provided to be made shall not be a lien or claim on any of the sums now provided by K.S.A. 68-416, and amendments thereto, except that the secretary of transportation and the authority may determine any priority as to lien and claim on the fund as between any such payments to the authority from the fund on account of any turnpike projects financed under the provisions of this act. The laws of Kansas shall not be repealed or amended so as to cause the moneys available in the state highway fund for making any payments to the authority provided to be made pursuant to the provisions of this section to be insufficient to make any such payments.

The provisions of any contract or agreement entered into pursuant to the provisions of this section may be enforced by the authority or by the trustee under any trust agreement authorized by the provisions of K.S.A. 68-2038, and amendments thereto.
