The Honorable Mike Thompson, Chairperson
Senate Committee on Utilities
Statehouse, Room 225B-E
Topeka, Kansas 66612
Dear Senator Thompson:
SUBJECT: Fiscal Note for SB 80 by Senate Committee on Federal and State Affairs
In accordance with KSA 75-3715a, the following fiscal note concerning SB 80 is
respectfully submitted to your committee.
SB 80 would amend existing law to prohibit any electric public utility subject to the
regulation of the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) from recovering costs associated with
transmission of electric power through a separate transmission delivery charge unless the utility
has already established a transmission delivery charge. A previously established transmission
delivery charge could continue to be used, and the public utility could change the transmission
delivery charge by filing an application with the KCC for a general retail rate change. The bill
also specifies the procedure that would be followed if the KCC changes a transmission rate due to
a regulatory authority that has legal jurisdiction over transmission matters issuing an order
changing that electric public utility’s rate.
According to the KCC, enactment of SB 80 would have no fiscal effect on the agency.


Adam Proffitt
Director of the Budget
