Prev Article 1. - STATUTESNext

77-136a.Incorporation of certain statutes by reference in Kansas Statutes Annotated authorized. In addition to the authority granted to the revisor of statutes to edit the Kansas Statutes Annotated and the latest supplement thereto, the revisor is authorized to include by reference such sections or acts as are deemed obsolete or of minor application, the same being muniments of title, provisions relating to acts previously performed, and historical or other matters which are not necessarily subject to repeal but will be chiefly valuable for reference. The reference to the acts which are not printed in full shall bear a citation to the session laws represented and shall contain brief synopses in brackets and appropriate comments or explanatory notes explaining the reason for the omission of the full text. The subjects of the acts included by reference shall be indexed so the full act may be readily found.

Statutes included by reference shall have full force and effect and the comment or explanation shall not effect any change in the substantive meaning of the statute so included, nor shall any commentary be used for the purpose of construing legislative intent. Any error in the commentary made by the office of revisor of statutes shall be construed as clerical error only.

History: L. 1977, ch. 319, § 1; July 1.
