"20.  School Breakfast Incentive Payments
a.  An additional payment of $1,441,908 the first year and $1,441,908 the second year from the general fund shall be disbursed by the Department of Education to local school divisions as incentive payments for the provision of school breakfasts to students in public elementary and secondary schools.
b.  These incentive payments shall be based on a state contribution of $0.05 per school breakfast served.
c.  To receive funding, each school division must provide complete documentation to the Department of Education detailing the number of school breakfasts served."

(This amendment provides local school divisions with a payment of five cents for each breakfast served to give local school divisions an incentive to make available to their students the most important meal of the day and a critical component of academic success. The state currently does not provide any funding for school breakfasts.)
