|Subject:||Additional emergency education relief to Intermediate Units|
|Please join me in co-sponsoring legislation to provide additional emergency education relief to Intermediate Units.
This legislation would allocate amounts that would be appropriated by the General Assembly as grants to Intermediate Units, based on a formula that takes into consideration the intermediate unit’s market value/aid ratio and the average daily membership of its component school districts. Intermediate Units did not receive an allocation of federal money under Act 1 of 2021.
I am introducing this legislation now, in preparation for future allocations from the federal government that the Commonwealth would be permitted to use for these purposes. If such funding does arrive, I believe that having this legislation prepared will allow us to allocate the funding promptly.
I look forward to working with you on this important legislation.
Introduced as HB719
