65-3024. Emissions fees. (a) The secretary may fix, charge and collect annual emissions fees in amounts necessary to pay the direct and indirect costs of administering the provisions of the Kansas air quality act.

To the extent possible, annual emission fees shall be based upon actual emissions determined pursuant to rules and regulations adopted by the secretary. For purposes of determining emission fees for a facility, emissions of any single regulated pollutant in excess of 4,000 tons per year shall not be included in the calculation when determining the total emissions from the facility.

(1) Fees collected under subsection (a);

(2) any moneys recovered by the state under the provisions of this act, including permit and approval fees collected under K.S.A. 65-3008, and amendments thereto, administrative expenses, civil penalties and moneys paid under any agreement, stipulation or settlement; and

(3) interest attributable to investment of moneys in the fund.

(c) Moneys deposited in the fund shall be expended only for the purpose of administering the Kansas air quality act, including funding of a technical and environmental compliance assistance program, and for no other governmental purposes.

(d) On or before the 10th of each month, the director of accounts and reports shall transfer from the state general fund to the air quality fee fund interest earnings based on:

(1) The average daily balance of moneys in the air quality fee fund for the preceding month; and

(2) the net earnings rate of the pooled money investment portfolio for the preceding month.
