Today I rise to offer a very commonsense amendment to House Bill No. 4203. House Bill No. 4203 is a very good and very necessary bill that corrects an area of statute to make sure that those who receive necessary medical devices, depending on how those are facilitated, receive the same treatment as others葉hat they are exempt from taxes.

Last week, this body voted overwhelmingly to hold the School Aid Fund harmless when considering a bill that would allow for enterprise data centers to receive tax exemptions. We voted 35 土eas in favor of holding the School Aid Fund harmless.

I stand today to offer an amendment that would carry that very good policy forward and make sure that as we are considering bills to collect areas in statute to provide tax fairness, we make sure we are not negatively impacting the future of every single child in this state. I encourage a 土es vote on this amendment.
