(This amendment deposits $1,000,000 in each year from the general fund to the Public School Assistance Fund proposed in Senate Bill 4. The proposed special nonreverting fund's purpose would be to provide grants to school boards to repair or replace the roofs of public school buildings. The bill permits any school board in the Commonwealth to apply for Program grants but requires the Department of Education to give priority in the award of grants to school boards that demonstrate the greatest need based on the condition of existing school building roofs and the ability to pay for the repair or replacement of such roofs. A companion amendment in Item 140 provides resources to the Department to administer the program.)
