(This amendment saves $9.7 million the second year from the general fund from not back-filling the expired federal grant program. The 13 school divisions that would have received the proposed funding have an opportunity to utilize the existing state preschool program. This amendment removes funding proposed in House Bill 1700 as introduced for back-filling the federal program that ended in fiscal year 2019. The Committee budget funding levels were limited to the additional dollars available pursuant to the economic reforecast presented in December, identified programmatic savings, and revenues generated by legislation expanding the collection of sales tax attributable to internet sales. All revenues attributable to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) are captured in the Taxpayer Relief Fund and the Revenue Reserve Fund in Item 475.10. This required removing approximately $1.2 billion in spending compared to House Bill 1700 as introduced.)
