    I move that House Bill 1420 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 3, line 8; (09)MO142003.3. -->     Page 3, after line38, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 20-28-9-2.6; (09)MO142003.2. -->     "SECTION 2. IC 20-28-9-2.6 IS ADDED TO THE INDIANA CODE AS A NEW SECTION TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2009]: Sec. 2.6.

    (b) If an individual described in subsection (a) possesses less than five (5) years of work experience in an industry that is comparable to a content area designated as a shortage area by the state board, the individual may receive a starting salary that is commensurate with the starting salary for a teacher with comparable years of teaching experience as determined by a local salary schedule of the school corporation. If an individual described in subsection (a) possesses at least five (5) years of work experience in an industry that is comparable to a content area designated as a shortage area by the state board, the individual may receive a starting salary that is commensurate with the starting salary for a teacher with five (5) years of teaching experience as determined by a local salary schedule of the school corporation.

    (e) Notwithstanding subsection (b), if a collective bargaining agreement allows for a starting salary for an individual described in subsection (a) that is greater than or equal to an amount determined under subsection (b), the amount of the starting salary that the collective bargaining agreement allows for is not subject to this section.
