Wiggins, Shoemyer, Relford, Berkowitz, Mayer

For school years 2002-2003 to 2005-2006, this bill allows school
districts to establish contracts with nonprofit, farmer-owned
new generation cooperatives to supply bus fuel containing at
least 20% biodiesel.  Subject to appropriation, districts that
establish contracts will receive additional state school aid
for  costs above the market price for regular diesel fuel.
Initial statewide payments are capped at 0.065% of the 1998-1999
entitlement for state transportation aid, but may be increased
by 4% each year.
