HB 1081 would set a new definition for "New Instructional Facility" in the Education Code. The new definition would include certain leased or repurposed facilities in addition to actual new construction facilities. This would allow some additional flexibility in funding for instructional facilities.
This bill would also increase the allotment under the New Instructional Facilities Allotment (NIFA) of the Foundation School Program from $250 to $1,000 for each student in average daily attendance at an eligible facility. Current law caps distributions under NIFA at $25 million annually. This bill would not change that cap.
