(a) There is hereby created in the state treasury a judicial branch education fund.
(b) All money credited to the fund shall be used for the purpose of educating and
training judicial branch officers and employees; for administering the training,
testing and education of municipal judges as provided in K.S.A. 12-4114, and amendments thereto; for educating and training municipal judges and municipal
court support staff; and for the planning and implementation of a family court system
as provided by law. Expenditures from the judicial branch education fund shall be made in accordance with
appropriation acts upon warrants of the director of accounts and reports issued pursuant
to vouchers approved by the chief justice of the supreme court or by a person or persons
designated by the chief justice.
(c) The chief justice may apply for, receive and accept money from any source for
the purposes for which money in the judicial branch education fund may be expended.
Upon receiving any such money, the chief justice shall remit the entire amount to
the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire
amount in the state treasury to the credit of the judicial branch education fund.

to transfer all moneys in the municipal judge training fund to the judicial branch
education fund. Upon the effective date of this act, all liabilities of the municipal judge training
fund existing prior to such date are hereby imposed on the judicial branch education
fund. Whenever the municipal judge training fund, or words of like effect, is referred to
or designated by any statute, contract, or other document, such reference or designation
shall be deemed to apply to the judicial branch education fund. The municipal judge training fund is hereby abolished.
