MR. SPEAKER:

    I move that Engrossed Senate Bill 384 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page Page14, line 3; (12)MO038404.Page14. -->     Page14, between lines 3 and 4, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 20-46-5-13; (12)MO038404.21. -->     "SECTION 21. IC 20-46-5-13 IS ADDED TO THE INDIANA CODE AS A NEW SECTION TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2013]: Sec. 13. (a) As used in this section, "department" refers to the department of local government finance.
    (b) As used in this section, "participant" refers to a governing body of a school corporation that elects to participate in the drive train lubricant and cooling system fluids maintenance school bus life extension program established under subsection (c).
    (c) The drive train lubricant and cooling system fluids maintenance school bus life extension program is established. A participant who applies to participate in the program under subsection (d) may be eligible to transfer an amount not to exceed the estimated savings that result from the use of a school bus or special use bus beyond the minimum useful life of the bus specified in the governing body's plan under section 8 of this chapter. The continued use of the bus must be justified with a drive train lubricant and cooling system fluids annual report described in subsection (e).
    (d) A governing body may elect to participate in the program established under subsection (c). To participate, a governing body must submit an application to the department on forms provided by the department.
    (e) In addition to the application provided under subsection (d), the governing body must submit an annual report to the department, at a time specified by the department, that provides an estimate of the cost savings to the governing body resulting from extending the useful life of a school bus or special use bus beyond the minimum useful life of the bus specified by the governing body in its plan under section 8 of this chapter. The estimate of cost savings must include an annual drive train lubricant and cooling system fluids report that justifies that the bus is in good working condition. The report must be in accordance with ASTM standards.
    (f) After a governing body submits its application and the annual drive train lubricant and cooling system fluids report to the department, the department may determine the amount the governing body may transfer from the school corporation's fund to the school corporation's general operating fund. A governing body may transfer the amount determined by the department under this subsection from the school corporation's fund to the school corporation's general operating fund for the year specified by the department.
    (g) The department shall establish standard criteria to value the cost savings to the governing body under this section. The governing body's estimate of cost savings submitted to the department under subsection (e) must be based on the standard criteria established under this subsection.
    (h) The department may request from the governing body any information necessary to administer this section.
    (i) The department may establish rules under IC 4-22-2 or guidelines necessary to administer this section.
