AN ACT relating to school funding.
Amend KRS 157.310 to clarify the intention of the General Assembly that no mandate be placed
on the public schools without program funding to carry out the mandate; require legislation
relating to the public schools that includes a fiscal note pursuant to KRS 6.955 or a state mandate pursuant to KRS 6.965 to include provision for funding that is adequate for compliance with the mandate; clarify that no school district shall be compelled to comply with mandated enactments of the General Assembly that do not provide adequate funding; specify that this amendment does not relieve a school district from the obligation to comply with state or federal laws relating to health, safety, or civil rights.
