Out of this appropriation, $6,000,000 each year is provided from the general fund to provide each school division a payment of $3,000 per school to assist with the cost of lead testing in potable water."


(This amendment provides $6,000,000 each year from the general fund to assist school divisions to comply with the provisions in House Bill 797. The bill, as introduced, requires each local school board to submit its plan to test and remediate certain potable water sources and report the results of any such test to the Department of Health. The bill also requires local school boards to take all necessary steps to notify parents if testing results indicate lead contamination that exceeds the maximum contaminant level goals set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.)
