45-310. Session laws; publication, printing, title and contents. (a) All acts passed at each session of the legislature shall be published in one or more volumes, under the direction of the secretary of state, as soon as practicable after the close of the session at which the same are passed. Such acts shall take effect and be in force from and after such publication, unless otherwise specifically provided in such act. Such volume or volumes shall also have included therein an index, the veto messages of the governor, if any, all certificates that a bill or item or items of a bill have been approved notwithstanding the governor's veto, if any, and all concurrent resolutions adopted by the legislature, except such resolutions extending congratulations or making a memorial for any decedent. Whenever any bill or act of the legislature shall provide that the same shall be effective from and after its publication in the statute book, the words "publication in the statute book" mean the date of publication of the session laws of Kansas specified in the certificate provided for by K.S.A. 45-311. Nothing contained in this act shall be construed to require the same date of publication for separate volumes of the session laws of Kansas when more than one volume is published for a single legislative session.

(b) Such volume or volumes shall be titled and may be cited as "________ Session Laws of Kansas." The blank shall be filled with the numeric designation of the year, in the case of regular sessions, and in the case of special sessions the blank shall be filled with the numeric designation of the year followed by the word "Special." Such title shall be printed on the back of each volume.

(c) The sections in such volume or volumes shall be printed in the same manner as the 1967 Session Laws of Kansas, except (1) material added to an existing section of the statutes shall be printed in italic type, and (2) material deleted from an existing section of the statutes shall be printed in canceled type.

(d) The secretary of state is authorized and directed to exercise editorial judgment in preparation of such volume or volumes to the end that the purposes of this act are made effective.
