(This amendment provides $500,000 the second year from the general fund for school divisions to purchase secondary career-technical equipment. This action will increase the current base allocation from $2,000 to $3,000 for every school division, with the additional funding distributed on the basis of enrollment in career and technical courses. The amendment raises total state funding from the current $1.8 million to $2.3 million to help public school career and technical education programs keep pace with the equipment required for Industry Certifications and Assessments.)
