Literary Fund; School Modernization Subfund. Creates a subfund in the Literary Fund to be known as the School Modernization Subfund (the Subfund). Moneys in the Subfund would be used to subsidize interest payments by local governing bodies and school boards on certain loans from the Virginia Resources Authority and other approved sources 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 Subfund would receive any revenues collected if the General Assembly authorizes the collection of sales and use tax from remote sellers and any other funds appropriated by the General Assembly.
