TOPEKA, KANSAS (BNO NEWS) – Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson signed on Monday two new bills, one related to the Beloit Juvenile Correctional Facility and the other about maintenance and certification of electronic records, a spokesperson for the Governor announced.

The SB 357 authorizes the Secretary of the Department of Administration to convey Beloit Juvenile Correctional Facility on behalf of the Juvenile Justice Authority to the City of Beloit, Kansas. All costs related to the conveyance will be paid by the City of Beloit.

The HB 2195 directs the State Archivist to present recommendations regarding the preservation process for maintaining the authenticity of electronic records. The legislation also enables electronic records maintained pursuant to the preservation process and certified by the electronic signature of the State Archivist to have the same legal effect as the original document; and allows reasonable fees to be charged for electronic copies.

With these two signings, Governor Parkinson increased to five the number of bills approved during the 2010 legislative session.
