The bill transfers $10 million from the general fund to the public
school capital construction assistance fund (assistance fund) for the

purpose of providing Building Excellent Schools Today Act (BEST)
grants to fund public school air quality improvement projects. The public
school capital construction assistance board (board) is authorized to make
the grants and is required to prioritize grant awards based on grant
applicants' existing calculated local match requirements for BEST grants,
with applicants with the lowest matching money requirements having the
highest priority and applicants with the highest matching money
requirements having the lowest priority. The board is also required to
submit a report about the grants to the general assembly during the
department of education's 2022 State Measurement for Accountable,
Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act presentation
to legislative committees of reference. Notwithstanding the use of
existing calculated local match requirements for grant prioritization
purposes, the grants are exempted from existing matching money
requirements for BEST grants. The bill makes an appropriation of $10
million from the assistance fund to the board.
