10-601. Registration of bonds by state treasurer; notations; coupons; transfers; negotiability. The state treasurer shall register any state bonds or bonds issued by a municipality as defined by K.S.A. 10-101, and amendments thereto, which the bondholder may present to the state treasurer, for recording in a book kept for that purpose, showing the municipality issuing the same, the series of the bond, the date, amount, number, maturity, the purpose for which the bond was issued and the name and post-office address of the bondholder. On registering any bond the state treasurer shall notify the municipality issuing the bond of its registration and the bond shall be payable on its maturity by the municipality to the state treasurer. When the state treasurer registers any bond, the registration shall be evidenced by notation to that effect on the reverse side of the bond, after which no transfer shall be valid unless made at the written request of the registered owner or a duly authorized agent in writing and similarly noted on the bond. The bond may be discharged from registration by being registered to bearer and thereupon transferability shall be restored. The bond may again be registered or be transferred to bearer as before. Registration shall not affect the negotiability of any interest coupons appertaining to any bond issued prior to the effective date of this act. This section shall not apply to any bond or bonds for which a fiscal agent other than the state treasurer has been designated.
