(This amendment would use the funding proposed for a Student Achievement Block Grant in the introduced budget to instead fund increased health insurance premium costs in Basic Aid under the Standards of Quality. Funding inflation for health care insurance premiums was a recommendation of the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission report, Review of Elementary and Secondary School Funding. A companion amendment in Item 147 establishes the Health Insurance Premiums Supplement.)
