(1) The state of Kansas or any county, city, township, special district or instrumentality of any of the aforementioned whose employees or a class of whose employees are members of any other retirement or pension plan authorized by a statute of the state of Kansas may by resolution adopted by the board, body or officer or officers authorized to apply for application pursuant to K.S.A. 74-4910, and any amendments thereto, request the board to submit a proposal for consolidation of such other system with the Kansas public employees retirement system including an estimate of the contribution rate necessary to comply with the actuarial standard of this system.
