"d. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the final COVID-19 Local Relief Payments be updated for actual sales tax distributions to school divisions through the final June monthly distribution in fiscal year 2021."


(This amendment reduces the COVID-19 Local Relief Payments by $40.0 million from the general fund the first year based on the net impact of the midsession sales tax reforecast. These payments were provided in Chapter 56, 2020 Special Session I Acts of Assembly to eliminate the local impact from the reduction of sales tax revenues. Due to the increase in sales tax estimates, the remaining COVID-19 Local Relief Payments total $12.9 million the first year from the general fund.)
