Passed 105 to 0 in the House on December 7, 2004.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To transfer approximately $20 million from the state General Fund to cover a School Aid Fund shortfall for the Fiscal Year 2003-2004 that ended Sept. 30, 2004. The bill does not address a $113.2 million deficit in the current FY 2004-2005 School Aid Fund.
Received in the Senate on December 8, 2004
Passed 37 to 0 in the Senate on December 9, 2004.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To authorize the transfer of $119.5 million from the General Fund to the School Aid Fund, to close an FY 2003-2004 and an FY 2004-2005 deficit in the latter. Also, to prohibit an Intermediate School District (ISD) "double dipping" scheme, in which certain special education staff are employed by both the ISD and the regular school district. This "shared-employment" allows the ISD (but not the staffers) to get more state money.

Substitute offered by Rep. Randy Richardville (R) on December 8, 2004
To replace the previous version of the bill with one that authorizes the transfer of another $99.5 million from the General Fund to the School Aid Fund, so as to also close an FY 2004-2005 deficit in the latter. The entire transfer would now be $119.5 million. The substitute also prohibits an Intermediate School District "double dipping" special education funding scheme (see House-passed bill for details).
The substitute passed by voice vote in the House on December 8, 2004
Amendment offered by Rep. Jack Minore (D) on December 8, 2004
To make the ISD "double dipping" scheme prohibition in the bill prospective only, so that three ISDs now using the scheme would not lose the extra money in the current school year.
The amendment failed by voice vote in the House on December 8, 2004
Passed 102 to 7 in the House on December 8, 2004.
