follows: 75-438. (a) There is hereby created the information and copy

service services fee fund in the state treasury. The secretary of state shall

charge and collect an information and services fee. The secretary of state

shall adopt rules and regulations fixing the fees to be charged and collected

under this section. If fees or charges for such information-related duties

and services otherwise are authorized by law, the information and service

fees may be charged in addition to the existing information-related or

from fees and charges under K.S.A. 75-409 or 75-437 or K.S.A. 2002

Supp. 50-1,101 this section, and amendments thereto, to the state trea-

surer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amend-

ments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer

shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the

information and copy service services fee fund.

(b) All expenditures from the information and copy service services

fee fund shall be in accordance with appropriations acts upon warrants

of the director of accounts and reports issued pursuant to vouchers ap-

proved by the secretary of state or by a person or persons designated by

the secretary.

(c) On the effective date of this act, the secretary of state shall certify

to the director of accounts and reports the amount of money in the con-

version of materials and equipment fund of the secretary of state which

moneys are from fees charged for copies of public documents under

K.S.A. 75-409, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of such certifi-

cation, the director of accounts and reports shall transfer the amount of

money certified from the conversion of materials and equipment fund to

the information and copy service fee fund. All liabilities of the conversion

of materials and equipment fund of the secretary of state which are at-

tributable to the service of providing copies of public documents under

K.S.A. 75-409, and amendments thereto, are hereby transferred to and

imposed on the information and copy service fee fund.

(c) On the effective date of this act, the information and copy service

fee fund is hereby redesignated as the information and services fee fund.

On the effective date of this act, the director of accounts and reports shall

transfer all moneys in the information and copy service fee fund to the

information and services fee fund. On the effective date of this act, all

liabilities of the information and copy service fee fund are hereby trans-

ferred to and imposed on the information and services fee fund and the

information and copy service fee fund is hereby abolished.

New Sec. 2. During each month of the fiscal year ending June 30,

2003, and each fiscal year thereafter, the secretary of state shall certify to

the director of accounts and reports the amount equal to the product of

of state during the preceding month from professional corporations, do-

mestic or foreign corporations, corporations organized not for profit, do-

mestic or foreign limited liability companies, domestic or foreign limited

partnerships or any other entities pursuant to statute, which include the
