Municipal Bond Service
The State Treasurer was designated as the fiscal agent for the State of Kansas in 1908. The registration of the issuance of municipal bonds was transferred to the State Treasurer in 1975. As a consequence of legislation in the 1980s, the State Treasurer has become registrar and transfer agent for those Kansas registered form municipal bonds that designate the Treasurer as paying agent. The office services more than 2,200 issues totaling in excess of $13 billion.
