To revise a provision that requires school property taxes be raised to pay off lawsuit-related judgments against a school district, by establishing that this does not apply if the lawsuit was to enforce a school employee union contract or other contract that specifically relates to school operations. The House added a number of exceptions, including for certain schools under the receivership of an Emergency Manager, for certain disputes between a school district and an Intermediate School District or the school employee pension system, and more.
