In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
The annual appropriations act for fiscal year 2016-2017 included a $10 million appropriation to be used to reimburse school districts for costs incurred when conducting lead testing in drinking water in schools. The corresponding language provision stipulated that the reimbursement would be made pursuant to program requirements to be established by the Department of Education, which would be effective upon filing with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL). The department's requirements stated that school districts would only be eligible to receive a reimbursement for lead testing performed after July 13, 2016. This bill would allow a school district to receive a reimbursement for lead testing conducted on or after January 1, 2016, but before the department filed the program requirements with the OAL, if the lead testing meets or exceeds the program requirements established by the department.
