"g. On or before June 30, 2024, the Director, Department of Planning and Budget, shall unallot any unused balances from the Fund, at an amount estimated at $80,000,000 in the second year."


(This amendment captures $80.0 million from the college partnership laboratory school fund, maintaining $20.0 million in the fund, and permitting the funds to carry forward in the fund into the 2024-26 biennium. The $20.0 million balance provides sufficient funds for the nine existing planning grants, four potential startup grants, and sufficient funding for about 1,235 lab school student slots each year. This estimate is based on $11,500 per pupil in state funds and recognizes the proposals that have been authorized by the General Assembly.)
