(This amendment expands the number of schools eligible for the federal government's zero percent interest bond program. The current language requires schools to have at least 35 percent free lunch participation and either (1) be located in federal enterprise communities or (2) be located in cities and counties within which federal enterprise communities are located. The amendment would allow participation if the school satisfied either criteria. This change is a recommendation of the Commission on Educational Infrastructure and Technology.)
