(This amendment would revise the state criteria for eligibility for federal Qualified Zone Academy Bonds. Currently, budget language limits eligibility to school divisions meeting free or reduced lunch criteria and having schools in federal empowerment or enterprise zones. This amendment would expand the eligibility to school divisions with schools in empowerment or enterprise zones, even if they did not meet the free or reduced lunch criteria.)
