2023 Statute


74-50,197. Civil penalties. (a) Any person who violates any provision of this act or any rule and regulation adopted hereunder may incur, in addition to any other penalty provided by law, a civil penalty in an amount fixed by the commission not to exceed $10,000 for each violation. In the case of a continuing violation, every day such violation continues shall be deemed a separate violation. In determining the amount of the civil penalty, the commission shall take into consideration all relevant circumstances, including, but not limited to, the extent of harm caused by the violation, the nature and persistence of the violation, the length of time over which the violation occurs and any corrective actions taken.

(b) All civil penalties assessed under this section shall be due and payable at the time of the violation. All payment of civil penalties assessed shall be held in an escrow fund by the boxing commissioner for 30 days after service on the person upon whom the penalty is being imposed. If a person upon whom a civil penalty has been imposed appeals the assessment, such assessment shall be held in the escrow fund until the commission affirms, reverses or modifies imposing the civil penalty. Once the assessment of the civil penalty becomes a final order, the commission shall deposit the amount of such assessment in the athletic fee fund. If the person who has been assessed a civil penalty does not appeal such assessment as provided in this section, the amount of the civil penalty assessed shall be deposited in the athletic fee fund.

(c) No civil penalty shall be imposed under this section except upon the written order of the commissioner to the person upon whom the penalty is to be imposed, stating the nature of the violation, the penalty imposed and the right of the person upon whom the penalty is imposed to appeal to the commission. Within 15 days after service of the order imposing the civil penalty, the person upon whom the civil penalty has been imposed may make written request to the commission for a hearing or informal conference hearing in accordance with the provisions of the Kansas administrative procedure act. The commission shall affirm, reverse or modify the order and shall specify the reasons therefor. The decision of the commission shall be final unless review is sought under subsection (d).

(d) Any person aggrieved by an order of the commission made under this section may appeal such order to the district court in the manner provided by the Kansas judicial review act.

(e) Any civil penalty recovered pursuant to the provisions of this section shall be remitted to the state treasurer. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the athletic fee fund.

(f) This section shall be a part of and supplemental to the Kansas professional regulated sports act.
