HOUSE BILL No. 2679
An Act concerning lifetime hunting, fishing and furharvester licenses; amending
K.S.A. 32-930 and repealing the existing section.
Section 1. K.S.A. 32-930 is hereby amended to read as follows: 32-
930. (a) Except as provided in subsection (b) (c), the secretary or the
secretary's designee is authorized to issue to any Kansas resident a lifetime
fishing, hunting or furharvester or combination hunting and fishing li-
cense upon proper application made therefor to the secretary or the sec-
retary's designee and payment of a license fee as follows: (1) A total
payment made at the time of purchase in the amount prescribed pursuant
to K.S.A. 32-988 and amendments thereto; or (2) payment may be made
over a two-year period in eight quarter-annual installments in the amount
prescribed pursuant to K.S.A. 32-988 and amendments thereto. If pay-
ment is in installments, the license shall not be issued until the final
installment has been paid. A person making installment payments shall
not be required to obtain the appropriate annual license, and each in-
stallment payment shall be deemed to be such an annual license for a
period of one year following the date of the last installment payment
made. If an installment payment is not received within 30 days after it is
due and owing, the secretary may consider the payments in default and
may retain any payments previously received. Any lifetime license issued
to a Kansas resident shall not be made invalid by reason of the holder
thereof subsequently residing outside the state of Kansas. Any nonresi-
dent holder of a Kansas lifetime hunting or combination hunting and
fishing license shall be eligible under the same conditions as a Kansas
resident for a big game permit upon proper application to the secretary.
Any nonresident holder of a lifetime fishing license issued before July 1,
1989, shall be eligible under the same conditions as a Kansas resident for
a big game permit upon proper application to the secretary.
(b) For the purposes of subsection (a), the term ``resident'' shall have
the meaning defined in K.S.A. 32-701, and amendments thereto, except
that a person shall have maintained that person's place of permanent
abode in this state for a period of not less than one year immediately
preceding the person's application for a lifetime fishing, hunting or fur-
harvester or combination hunting and fishing license.
(c) Upon request of the secretary of social and rehabilitation services,
the secretary of wildlife and parks shall not issue a lifetime fishing, hunting
or furharvester or combination hunting and fishing license to an applicant
except as provided in this subsection. The secretary of social and reha-
bilitation services may make such a request if, at the time of the request,
the applicant owed arrearages under a support order in a title IV-D case
being administered by the secretary of social and rehabilitation services
or had outstanding a warrant or subpoena, directed to the applicant, in a
title IV-D case being administered by the secretary of social and reha-
Upon receiving a release from an authorized agent of the secretary of
social and rehabilitation services, the secretary of wildlife and parks may
issue the lifetime fishing, hunting or furharvester or combination hunting
and fishing license. The applicant shall have the burden of obtaining and
delivering the release.
The secretary of social and rehabilitation services shall issue a release
upon request if, as appropriate:
(1) The arrearages are paid in full or a tribunal of competent juris-
diction has determined that no arrearages are owed;
(2) an income withholding order has been served upon the applicant's
current employer or payor;
(3) an agreement has been completed or an order has been entered
setting minimum payments to defray the arrearages, together with receipt
of the first minimum payment; or
(4) the applicant has complied with the warrant or subpoena or the
warrant or subpoena has been quashed or withdrawn.
Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to require or permit the
secretary of wildlife and parks to determine any issue related to the title
IV-D case except to resolve questions of mistaken identity or determine
the adequacy of any notice relating to this subsection that the secretary
of wildlife and parks provides to the applicant.

ments thereto, may adopt rules and regulations necessary to carry out the
