(C) Will comply with all federal and state laws and local ordinances.
(D) (i) Has or has not been registered or licensed as a roofing contractor in another state; and

(3) If the applicant is not a resident of this state, then the nonresident applicant will appoint the secretary of state as legal agent for service of process or as otherwise provided in this act.
(b) The attorney general shall refuse to register any person if the attorney general determines:
(1) The application contains false, misleading, or incomplete information.
(2) The applicant fails or refuses to provide any information requested by the attorney general.
(3) The applicant fails or refuses to pay the required fees.

(2) Notification shall be deemed sufficient if mailed, via first class mail, to the address listed in the last application for registration or for renewal filed by the applicant.
(3) An applicant aggrieved by a decision of the attorney general denying a registration or renewal may appeal the decision as provided in the Kansas administrative procedure act. In the alternative, the applicant may reapply after the expiration of a 90-day waiting period, if the applicant is otherwise eligible under the provisions of this act.

(6) maintain any registration as required by law in another state while registered in this state as a nonresident roofing contractor; or
(7) file and pay all taxes when due in this state.
(e) The attorney general shall send a written notice to the person when such person's registration is not in good standing. Notification shall be deemed sufficient if mailed, via first class mail, to the address listed in the last registration or renewal form filed by the applicant. Any roofing contractor who has been notified by the attorney general that such person's registration is not in good standing shall cease soliciting or entering new roofing services and projects as of the date of such notification. The roofing contractor shall be allowed to complete roofing projects where actual physical work has begun prior to the date of issuance of the notice that such person's registration is not in good standing. If the roofing contractor fails to correct the deficiency specified in the notice by evidence satisfactory to the attorney general within 30 days of the date of the notice, or if the roofing contractor solicits or enters into new roofing services contracts or projects while the roofing contractor's registration certificate is not in good standing, or while such registration certificate is suspended or revoked, the roofing contractor shall be in violation of the provisions of this act. Any registration certificate that is not in good standing shall be revoked 30 days from the date of notification to the roofing contractor that the registration is not in good standing. Notice of revocation shall be deemed sufficient if mailed, via first class mail, to the address listed in the last application, registration or renewal form filed by the applicant. The roofing contractor may reinstate such roofing contractor's registration certificate to good standing by paying the required fees provided in K.S.A. 2013 Supp. 50-6,132, and amendments thereto, and complying with all other requirements for issuance of a registration in good standing.
Any person aggrieved by the decision of the attorney general to suspend or revoke a registration certificate pursuant to this section may appeal such decision as provided in the administrative procedure act.
