Joint Budget Committee. In 2022, the general assembly passed
House Bill 22-1358 (act), which requires each child care center, each
family child care home, and each public school that serves any of grades
pre-K-8th grade to test its drinking water sources for the presence of lead
on or before May 31, 2023. The act also created the school and child care
clean drinking water fund (fund) and required the department of public
health and environment (CDPHE) to expend money from the fund to
reimburse eligible schools, child care centers, and family child care
homes, as needed and in a certain order of priority, for costs associated
with the testing of drinking water. With regard to eligible schools that
serve students in sixth, seventh, or eighth grade, the act required the
department to provide such reimbursements on and after March 15, 2024.
The bill changes the date upon which the CDPHE must begin
providing reimbursements to eligible schools that serve students in sixth,
seventh, or eighth grade from March 15, 2024, to June 1, 2023.
