Page 126, line 26, strike "$501,412,921" and insert "$501,714,921".
Page 130, after line 10, insert:
"7. From this appropriation $302,000 the second year for school divisions to provide access to a defibrillator at every public high school that offers interscholastic sports on campus.  School divisions shall receive funding based on $1,000 per qualifying high school, up to a maximum of $20,000 per school division."

(This amendment is self-explanatory. A companion bill House Bill 2299 would require that each high school be equipped with an automated external defibrillator. In addition, the bill would require high schools to ensure that personnel have certification or training in the operation of an automated external defibrillator.)
