Prev Article 8. - WARRANTSNext


10-811. Cancellation of state warrants; when warrant may be canceled; records of cancellation. (a) In every case in which the director of accounts and reports shall have drawn a warrant against the state treasurer and a period of one year shall have elapsed since the issuance of such warrant, during which time no person entitled thereto shall have appeared to claim such warrant from the director of accounts and reports, or to claim the money so authorized to be paid from the state treasurer, such warrant, at the discretion of the director of accounts and reports and state treasurer, may be canceled and set aside upon their records.

(b) In the event that federal laws or regulations require the state to refund or credit money to the federal government because state warrants which were funded in whole or in part by federal funds remain uncashed or unclaimed after a specified period of time, the director of accounts and reports may cancel any such warrant after such specified period of time has elapsed. Such specified period of time shall be prominently stated on the face of the warrant.

(c) Cancellations pursuant to this section shall show the date canceled and the records shall recite that they were unpaid but canceled by reason of this statute of limitation. Canceled warrants shall be considered unclaimed property under the provisions of K.S.A. 58-3934 through 58-3978, and amendments thereto.

(d) The canceled warrants payment fund is hereby abolished. All balances in the canceled warrants payment fund shall be transferred to the state general fund. All balances accrued from unpaid canceled warrants shall be transferred upon the records of the director of accounts and reports and state treasurer and shall be considered unclaimed property under the provisions of K.S.A. 58-3934 through 58-3978, and amendments thereto. Any programming costs, including technical and functional analysis, incurred by the department of administration to implement the provisions of this subsection shall be performed and expended within the current resources of the department. No additional funding shall be requested or appropriated for such programming costs.
