A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 
AN ACT
  relating to additional state aid for certain common school

         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  Subchapter E, Chapter 42, Education Code, is

  district that received for the 2016-2017 or a preceding school year
  additional state aid under Section 42.2516.
         (b)  A common school district to which this section applies
  is entitled to the additional state aid that would have been
  provided to the district for the current school year under Section
  42.2516, as that section existed on January 1, 2017, if the district
  demonstrates, to the satisfaction of the commissioner, that the
  failure to receive that state aid would require the district to
  close at least one campus.
         (c)  The commissioner shall adopt rules necessary to
  implement this section.
         SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2017, if it

  house, as provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution.
  If this Act does not receive the vote necessary for effect on that
  date, this Act takes effect on the 91st day after the last day of the
  legislative session.
