Literary Fund; school modernization. Requires the Board of Education to create a program in which monies from the Literary Fund would be used to subsidize interest payments by local governing bodies and school boards on certain loans from the Virginia Public School Authority for school construction and modernization. Only school divisions with a composite index of local ability-to-pay less than 0.4000 would be eligible to participate in the interest payment program. The bill limits the aggregate amount of loans for each fiscal year to an amount to be specified in the general appropriation act. Read the Bill »
