20-626. Additional courtrooms in counties over 300,000; no-fund warrants; tax levies. The board of county commissioners of any county in this state having a population of more than 300,000 is hereby authorized to issue no-fund warrants for the purpose of paying all costs incurred in providing additional quarters in any available space of the courthouse for the holding of court and jury and retiring rooms, except that before such warrants shall be issued the board of county commissioners shall have received from all of the judges of the appropriate court a resolution certifying to necessity of additional quarters. Such no-fund warrants shall be issued in the manner and form, bear interest and be redeemed as prescribed by K.S.A. 79-2940, and amendments thereto, except that they may be issued without the approval of the state court of tax appeals, and without the notation required by said section. The board of county commissioners shall make a tax levy at the first tax levying period after such warrants are issued, sufficient to pay such warrants and the interest thereon, except that in lieu of making only one tax levy, the county commissioners may, if it deems it advisable, make a tax levy each year for not to exceed five years in approximately equal installments for the purpose of paying said warrants and the interest thereon. All such tax levies shall be in addition to all other levies authorized or limited by law and shall not be subject to or within the aggregate tax levy limitation prescribed by article 19 of chapter 79 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated and acts amendatory thereof. None of the provisions of the state budget law shall apply to any expenditure which has been provided for by the issuance of warrants under this act.
