Rep. Ott proposes the following amendment (LC-39.WAB0303H):

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 1, by striking Section 59-8-120(I) and inserting:

(I) The trust fund does not constitute a debt of the State or any political subdivision thereof, including school districts. The trust fund must be held and applies solely toward carrying out the purposes of this chapter; provided, however, that at the end of each fiscal year any funds not used during that fiscal year must be transferred to the State Department of Education for distribution to the school districts with the highest percentage of students who are eligible to receive free or reduced school lunches under federal eligibility guidelines.
